Chelsea could end up getting less money for Mason Mount after latest Liverpool development

Not long ago all of the top teams in the Premier League were chasing Mason Mount, who will be sold this summer by Chelsea as he enters the final year of his contract.

But interest from Arsenal seems to have dried up as they pushed for Declan Rice, and today we’ve read on Caughtoffside that Liverpool are also now considering pulling out. Jurgen Klopp is given personal credit for “pulling the plug” on the deal because of Chelsea’s £70m asking price. We’re sure that kind of specific decision is made by the famous transfer team at Anfield, but Klopp may have signed off on the decision.

That would leave Manchester United as the sole serious bidder for Mount – unless a foreign team comes out of the woodwork somewhere.

We have basically given up hope of Mount signing a new deal in the short term – but there is a fractional chance that no team offer Chelsea what they want for the transfer, and he ends up staying to see out the last year of his deal.

If he does that and becomes a key player under Mauricio Pochettino, there’s no telling what could happen. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, and for now all this means is that Man U will have a more clear run at signing him, and Chelsea might well end up getting less money for the transfer because of that.
