Chelsea will be upgrading Mason Mount’s contract.
The English midfielder has been one of the star performers for Chelsea last season and was instrumental in helping the Blues win the Champions League.
He scored six goals and created five assists in 36 Premier League games for the Blues last term.
His performances at club level made him earn a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England XI where he played five games at the European Championship.
Mount’s contract with the Blues is set to expire in 2024 and the club are willing to hand him an improved contract according to Ian McGarry.
McGarry said on the Transfer Window Podcast: “Another player involved in a contract negotiation is Mason Mount.
“The club would like to upgrade his current contract after what has been a developmental but successful season for the player which has concluded in him playing in the Euro 2020 final for England.
“This is a player who was obviously promoted by Frank Lampard before he was sacked and then also put faith in by Thomas Tuchel.
“That contract upgrade could mean anything up to a £50,000-a-week pay-rise on his current salary, which is around £80,000 a week, reflecting and fairly obviously just what an important player he has become for the Stamford Bridge club in terms of their success in terms of the Champions League and a Premier League title challenge next season.”
