Chelsea’s key midfielder Mason Mount is said to be having difficulties renewing his contract.
Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 5th (Korean time), “Mount’s future at Chelsea is in doubt after negotiations on a new contract broke down. He currently has 18 months left on his contract. He declined because he was lower than others.”
Mount is a midfielder that Chelsea have nurtured. Mount is a Chelsea Sacred Goal Youth who joined the Chelsea Youth in 2005 and achieved steady growth. The expectations from Chelsea were very high. Mount also won the FA Youth Cup four times in a row and won the Chelsea Academy Player Award for the 2016-17 season. He later went on loan to Peteser and Derby County to gain experience.
His Chelsea first team debut was in the 2019–20 season. When Frank Lampard, who coached Mount at Derby, took over at Chelsea, Mount was also appointed to the first team. He was coach Lampard’s crown prince. Since his debut season, Mount has played 37 English Premier League (EPL) games, scoring 7 goals and 6 assists, and has been very active. Last season, he went 10-10 with 11 league goals and 10 assists.
He is also playing a key role in Chelsea’s midfield this season. Mount is in charge of the air defense link, playing 20 games (19 starts) in 21 league standards. Even though the team is suffering from sluggishness and Mount is not showing much activity, it is still an indispensable key resource.
However, news broke recently that the renewal of the contract was broken. Currently, Mount has a contract until June 2024. According to ‘Spotrac’, which documents annual salaries in the sports world, Mount’s weekly wage is known to be 80,000 pounds (about 120 million won). 카지노사이트
Mount’s requirement is three times the weekly wage. ‘Daily Mail’ stated that “Mount would like to triple his weekly wages, but the club have offered him far less than the likes of Raheem Sterling.” Sterling, who currently earns the highest weekly wage at Chelsea, is known for a weekly wage of 325,000 pounds (approximately 490 million won).
ironic situation. Chelsea went through two transfer windows after Todd Boelli took over as owner. During that period, Chelsea spent more than 537 million pounds (approximately 808.2 billion won).
