NewsPochettino arrival not changing Mount's decision to leave Chelsea

The expected arrival of Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager of Chelsea will not convince Mason Mount to stay at the club beyond this season.

  • Mount still wants to leave Chelsea
  • Pochettino arrival not changing his mind
  • Three Premier League teams interested

What is the news?

Mount has decided for himself that he wants to leave Chelsea this summer. It is believed that the England international isn’t too happy with his limited game time this season and he has set his sights on a move to another Premier League club. Mount has recently rejected a contract offer from Chelsea and is not willing to continue talks over a new deal.

The backstory

Mount has developed his career through the youth academy at Chelsea and was given his major break on the first team under Frank Lampard, who worked with Mount at Derby County. The attacking midfielder then developed into a first team player but after Lampard was sacked, Mount lost his position on the team under both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter. His situation has changed slightly under Lampard, but Mount is aware that the caretaker will be replaced after the season and he fears he will be benched again under Pochettino.

What next?

According to a report from The Sun, Pochettino will be holding talks with players at Chelsea about next season once he is officially appointed as the new boss. It is unclear if the Argentinian has plans for Mount or that he will agree to let him leave. The midfielder has a couple offers from other Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur.
