Chelsea already have Mason Mount contract U-turn hope as Virgil van Dijk transfer call made


Mason Mount has made a massive decision regarding his future as transfer speculation continues. The Englishman appears to be heading for the exit door at Stamford Bridge with just over 14 months left on his contract. The 24-year-old has already been given an ultimatum with Todd Boehly not willing to risk losing him for free in 2024, meaning he either signs a new deal or leaves over the summer.

Unlike fellow academy graduates Reece James, Armando Broja and Trevoh Chalobah, who all signed long term contracts, Mount is yet to commit. It is believed that he isn't as set on the baseball style length being offered out by the new owners. With attention shifting the sumner, the possibility of Chelsea losing their two-time player of the season is a real one with interested parties across Europe including Liverpool.

Now, with crunch-time approaching, Mount has made a big choice which is sure to impact how any future talks go. According to the Daily Mail he has now joined with leading agent Neil Fewings.

 Having worked with a host of Liverpool- related clients including Virgil van Dijk, Harvey Elliot, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita, Fewings has connections to the Reds. It is said that the move is to help smooth out a prospective transfer in the summer as the chances of him not being a Chelsea player next season increase week-on-week.

Mount's previous agent was his dad, Tony, who looked after him after the player left Stellar Football 18 months ago. Less than 12 months after registering career and team high figures for both goals and assists, Mount is playing in his worst patch of form at SW6 yet and has been out of the side for several weeks with injury too.

His absence hasn't helped the cause either but there is still room for hope for those wishing to see him remain at the club. It was only in January that Brighton star Moises Caicedo was the centre of transfer rumours and even posted what appeared to be a goodbye message on social media.

The Ecuadorian stayed over the winter and has now signed a new deal on the south coast despite changing agent in order to push through a move to one of Chelsea or Arsenal. His choices do show that Mount's future isn't sown up just yet and that there is still room for a change in heart and a U- turn, all the indications at the current time would say otherwise though.
