Chelsea’s Mason Mount hires new agent as Man United & Liverpool circle

A major update on the future of Chelsea star Mason Mount has come to the fore late on Friday evening.

The subject of Mount’s situation, of course, has taken its place front and centre in the headlines in west London across much of the season to date.

This comes as the powers that be at Stamford Bridge have continued working tirelessly towards tying the English international down for the long-term.

After a contract renewal agreement was at one point viewed as a near formality between the two parties, negotiations have since dragged on in concerning fashion, culminating in suggestions that, should he not commit to fresh terms soon, Mount could be moved on come the summer.

Links to a number of direct Premier League rivals, in turn, have followed, with Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool understood to be keeping a particularly close eye on the situation of the 24-year-old.

And now, as alluded to above, a major development, pointing towards a likely Chelsea exit, has been revealed late on Friday evening.

The info comes courtesy of the Daily Mail, who have confirmed that Mount has hired Neil Fewings of Wasserman Media Group as his new agent.

This comes amid plans to negotiate a potential summer transfer, after the ‘final’ contract offer on the part of Todd Boehly and co. failed to bear fruit.

Both Manchester United and Newcastle United, in turn, are understood to have joined Liverpool in the hunt for Mount’s services ahead of next season.
