Revealed: Value of Chelsea’s rejected contract offer to Mason Mount

An insight into the ongoing contract standoff between Premier League giants Chelsea and midfield star Mason Mount has been provided late on Friday evening.

The subject of Blues youth product Mount’s situation has of course long taken its place front and centre in the headlines in west London.

This comes amid surprise uncertainty surrounding the future of the 23-year-old.

Previously viewed as little more than a formality, negotiations between Mount’s representatives and the board at Stamford Bridge have hitherto failed to give rise to an agreement on the terms of a new contract.

The midfielder’s current terms, meanwhile, are due to expire in the summer of 2024.

In turn, murmurs have begun to circulate that Chelsea could take into consideration a sale, in the case of Mount continuing to drag his heels into the new year.

And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the latest stalemate encountered by the two parties during discussions has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of Matt Hughes of the Daily Mail, who has revealed that Chelsea offered their long-time midfield star a deal worth a hefty £200,000-per-week, prior to his departure for England duty at the World Cup.

Mount, however, rejected the proposal out of hand.

This comes as the Portsmouth native seeks terms in the region of those afforded to Raheem Sterling over the summer - £300,000.

Considerable distance, as a result, remains between club and player, with no immediate resolution seemingly in sight.
