MOUNT REJECT £200,000-a-week Chelsea deal in order to equal Raheem Sterling, but the two parties are still far away in their discussions

Mason Mount declined a Chelsea deal for more than £200,000 per week in order to take a calculated risk that, if successful, might pay out spectacularly.

Chelsea decided to suspend talks for the rest of the competition, but since the two parties are still far apart, it is doubtful that there would be a quick resolution when talks begin after Christmas.

And if mount keeps up his impressive play, like he did in England’s 6-2 victory against Iran, that margin may widen.

The contract Raheem Sterling received upon leaving Manchester City last summer, which was worth £300,000 per week, is thought to be the one Mount’s representatives are pursuing.

The proposals from Chelsea to Mount have been much less than that. When contract negotiations with Reece James and mount began in September, the Blues had hoped to reach a swift agreement. However, although the defender agreed to a new six-year deal, his teammate’s negotiations have been more drawn out.

Despite Chelsea, Mount’s obvious resistance to signing is a matter for concern considering his contract only has 18 months left on it. Despite Liverpool and Juventus’ interest, that will lower his transfer worth.

The 23-year-old, who makes about £85,000 a week, is one of Graham Potter’s lowest-paid players since he hasn’t signed a contract since shortly after returning from a loan stint at Derby three years ago, when he hadn’t yet established himself as a fixture in Chelsea’s first team.
