Mason Mount could play a wide role for the United along with Sofyan Amrabat.
Paul Brown offers GIVEMESPORT with his reaction to John Terry’s recent comments on Mason Mount. Chelsea’s contract offer to Man United star at Stamford Bridge could have been considered “disrespectful”.
The West London club lost the services of their academy product in the summer. New Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino looks to gain a top-four finish.
Last week, Terry hinted to Knockout Events (via The Mirror) that there’s a side to Mount’s departure from Chelsea that the public don’t know. The Chelsea star signed for United in a £60m deal this summer, having failed to agree on improved terms to his £80,000 per-week contract at Stamford Bridge.
Terry said: “Mase is proper Chels through and through. There are always two sides to a story, and I know the other side to it. I’m not going to air that tonight, but there’s another side to the story. Let’s not be too harsh on him when he comes back.”
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has recently told GIVEMESPORT that the Englishman could play a wide role for the United along with Sofyan Amrabat.
The journalist told GIVEMESPORT: “I didn’t see them as that cryptic. I just think that Mount’s side of this story hasn’t been told. He’d been in contract talks with Chelsea for a long time, and I don’t think he ever really felt that they were desperate to keep him. He was on a low wage at Chelsea. He was nowhere near their top earner. He’d been winning Player of the Year awards and was one of their better players.
“He won trophies with the club, yet Chelsea never once made him an offer to become either their highest earner or to give him parity with their highest earners. And I think if you’re Mount, you’re probably entitled to feel a bit disrespected by that. I think, ultimately, he did, and he decided that he had no choice but to go and see what else might be out there.”
