Thiago Silva has reacted to Mason Mount 'agreeing personal terms' with Manchester United ahead of his transfer away from Chelsea.
Mount is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, with a host of clubs interested in snapping up the talented midfielder.
The Telegraph claim Mount has agreed personal terms with the Red Devils ahead of completing a switch to Old Trafford.
It doesn't seem a popular decision among the Chelsea team as Silva has shared his thoughts on Mount leaving the Blues.
The veteran Brazilian defender commented on a social media post presenting the latest on Mount's proposed transfer to Man United.
He reacted with two upset face emojis, almost confirming the England international's departure from Chelsea.
Mount moving to Man United seems to be gathering steam, with Frank Lampard, who was caretaker manager following Graham Potter's dismissal, talking up the player's transfer away from the club.
"I think it is a difficult situation," he said prior to Chelsea's match against Man United last week.
"From working with Mason and other players when I was here before, they've either gone on to be really important players for the club that have a real relation with the fans, back and forth, because they really feel the club when they've been in the academy since eight years of age.
"And some of them have moved on to other clubs and the club have done well out of that. They've gone on and you've wished them well in their careers."
The 44-year-old added: "I think with Mason particularly, as an individual, I don't know what the solution is going to be because it's a club and Mason issue I don't know exactly where Mason is at, personally. He's got a year left on his contract. I know he's held in high regard at the club and I know the club are doing what they can to make him stay.
"But I think also with Mason, I'd never want to stand here and talk in the modern day about what a player should do, because they'll see it all with their own eyes.. In the old days, it was, 'Why are you leaving the club?' In the modern day, players move on. It's a shame we've got into a situation where it looks like it's happening maybe now."
