Mason Mount has become a symbol for the Chelsea Football Club in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. The young Englishman has won the hearts of fans and earned immense respect from his teammates since he joined the club’s academy. He represents everything that the institution stands for: hard work, dedication, and a never-give-up attitude.
But it seems that the future of the player is far from Stanford Bridge.
The 24-year-old’s contract runs out in 2024, and there is no sign the club wants to extend it. Therefore, an outing in the summer is most likely.
In fact, it seems that Mount has already prepared for the negotiations that he will have to face in the coming months and has hired Neil Fewings from Roof to handle his deals.
Mount parted ways with Stellar Football about two years ago, and since then, his part of Tony’s has been in charge of managing his career.
About the future
Speaking about Mount’s future, Chelsea manager Potter said: “Ultimately, it is between the club and Mason. I have spoken to him numerous times about his situation, football, and life generally.
“My feelings for Mason are clear. He is a fantastic person firstly, but sometimes these things happen. They are just complicated, and it is best that I speak little about it, let them get on with it in deciding what is right for both parties.
“I know it is an important time for him and an important contract. These things have to be right for him and his family. It’s important he makes a decision on that basis.
“He’s the same as everybody else; he wants to play. At the moment, he is suffering with a slight injury so he probably needs little bit more time until he is available properly. He is happy around the place and wants to help the team. That is normal with Mason, no change in that. He wants to help and the team to win. He wants to be injury free and play football.”
