Mason Mount rejects Chelsea’s 200k-per-week offer

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has reportedly rejected the offer of a new contract worth £200,000 per week.

It has been reported that prior to leaving for the World Cup, Mason Mount turned down a new deal at Chelsea worth more than £200,000 a week, a decision that could pay off if England comes out successful at the competition.

Since the Blues’ takeover was completed at the end of May, co-owner Todd Boehly, who happens to be in the negotiating party for a number of current club stars and new prospects, has renewed contracts for Reece James, Armanjo Broja, and Travoh Chalobah, who just signed his deal last Friday.

However, appears that Mount’s renewal proceedings is taking a rather long process than imagined for both the club and the player.

The 23-year-old’s representatives reportedly turned down an offer just before departing for the World Cup in Qatar seemingly because the player’s offer is low in comparison to what was offered his club and country teammates Reece James and Raheem Sterling – who arrive in the summer.

Despite receiving a huge increase on his current income, reports claim Mount wants parity with his teammates who receives £250,000 and £300,000 per week respectively.

The English midfielder has endured a rather disappointing campaign for the blues this season. But with his overall 32 goals and 37 assists in 181 appearances, the likes of Liverpool and Juventus are said to be, monitoring the situation for a potential approach later.
