Mason Mount’s contract talks has been stalled for weeks.
The 24-year-old midfielder is expected to leave Stamford Bridge as his new contract with Chelsea have come to a standstill in recent weeks.
He has little over 12 months left on his Blues contract and Chelsea is demanding around £70 million for the midfielder’s services.
The England international has been a crucial figure at Chelsea for the past four seasons.
The midfielder has undergone surgery and is expected to be available before the end of the season.
“Mason Mount will have been a player that came across Pochettino’s intrays during the managerial talks, and despite the well-documented situation that’s been reported in recent months [no agreement on new contract and talks have been parked till the summer], you can still have dialogue and conversations, and I revealed last week that Todd Boely and Mount have had in-person conversations.
“What was said to Mount was how much the club value him and that they do want to renew him. It’s a massive decision for both parties. Chelsea’s stance is that they will either renew or sell, but let’s not forget, the new manager that comes into Chelsea will have a big say on this matter.”
