“So let’s see” – Insider updates on tense in-house situation at Chelsea

There’s a lot of things going on at Chelsea right now and the new owners have been super busy and nonstop since the day they arrived.

Not only have they been trying to rebuild a squad, there have also been in-house situations to sort out such as expiring contracts.

Some contracts are more urgent than others, with 2023 end dates. But there are also the 2024 contracts that the club are now looking to address, one of them being midfielder Mason Mount.

A lot has been said about Mount recently and whether he will extend or not, with some negative reports out on it yesterday claiming it wasn’t looking great. But insider Fabrizio Romano has said it’s pretty much the same as it has been, and negotiations are continuing, in the latest edition of his exclusive CaughtOffside column the Daily Briefing.

Mount’s recent form hasn’t really been his best, so you’d imagine the speculation over his future won’t be helping.

“A lot has been said about Mason Mount’s future again, particular his role in the team now that Chelsea have spent big money on the likes of Enzo Fernandez and Mykhaylo Mudryk,” Romano wrote.

“I’m told negotiations are still ongoing between Chelsea and Mount, so let’s see how the conversation will go in the next weeks and months.

“I think it would be fair to say that automatic starters don’t exist when the competition is that high, he knows he has to perform at top level to keep his place, but nothing has changed.”
