England international Mason Mount is very likely to leave Chelsea after the end of the 22/23 campaign, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Mason Mount has only a little over a year left on his current contract with Chelsea. His current contract with Chelsea expires in 2024. That means Chelsea risk losing Mount on a free transfer in 2024 if they do not reach a contract extension agreement with the player or sell him before his deal expires.
Chelsea have not yet reached an agreement over a new contract with Mason Mount that would extend his stay at the Stamford Bridge outfit beyond the expiry of the current deal. Talks over a new contract have reportedly stalled, and the two parties far from reaching an agreement on terms of a new contract.
Chelsea could look to cash in on Mason Mount in the summer transfer window if the impasse with regards to his contract situation continues.
Mason Mount appoints Neil Fewings as his new agent
Fabrizio Romano reports that Mason Mount has appointed Neil Fewings as his new agent and that the agreement was done weeks ago. Romano also says Mason Mount is very likely to leave Chelsea in July.
Mason Mount, who is a product of the Chelsea academy, has established himself as a key player at the west London outfit. The 24-year-old has so far made 192 appearances for Chelsea’s senior team. He has also racked up 33 goals for the Blues’ first team.
Mason Mount has featured in 32 games across all competitions for Chelsea so far in the current campaign. He has started in 26 of those matches, which shows how regular a starter he has been for the Blues this season.
Mason Mount is currently nursing an injury and has missed the last three games Chelsea have played. He will also not feature for the Blues when they take on Everton in a Premier League fixture in their next game.
Meanwhile, Chelsea currently languishes at 10th in the Premier League table. As their position in the Premier League table indicates, they have struggled to live up to the expectations this season.
However, Chelsea remains in contention for the Champions League title. The Blues have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they will square off with defending champions Real Madrid for a place in the semis.
