The competition to recruit Mason Mount (24, Chelsea) is fierce.
Global sports media ‘ESPN’ said on the 16th (Korean time), “Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool are competing to sign Chelsea midfielder Mount. They are waiting to see if Mount will renew his contract with Chelsea.”
Mount’s contract with Chelsea runs until the end of the 2023-24 season. The two sides are negotiating to renew the contract, but have yet to reach an agreement. Mount wants to raise his salary significantly, and Chelsea want to pay high salaries to new recruits. Mount’s current weekly wage is around £80,000 (123 million won).
Compared to his peers, his salary is quite low. Reese James, who is the same age as Mount and is from the Chelsea youth team, recently signed a new contract and was promised a high salary. James’ weekly wage is more than three times higher than Mount’s, which is 250,000 pounds (approximately 387 million won).
Because of this, Mount feels sorry for Chelsea. There are also reports that Chelsea could give Mount to Atletico Madrid in exchange for the full signing of loan signing Joao Felix. Man Utd, Man City, and Liverpool are trying to take away the youth mount of Chelsea’s sacred goal by taking advantage of this gap. 토토사이트
