Mount set to leave, Sun say

The Sun say Mason Mount is on his way out of Chelsea and that the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino will come “too late” to save contract negotiations.

Mount’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires next year and he has yet to agree a new deal.

The Sun say he was offered a one-year extension but it was “flatly rejected” as it was “seen as a ploy simply to raise his transfer fee”.

The newspaper also reports that relations between the club and Mount’s representatives are “at an all-time low”, that he is “set to leave” and that the situation is unlikely to change with Pochettino coming in as head coach.

‘A Blues source’ is quoted as saying: “It feels like it is too late now for Mason. Pochettino is good but he can’t work miracles.

“If he had been brought in when Chelsea sacked Thomas Tuchel in September then maybe it would be a different story.

“But in ten months there hasn’t been any resolution and other clubs want him. Good luck to Poch and Mason but we’re not hopeful.”
