Mason Mount’s Chelsea contract clause could influence his transfer to Liverpool



Due to a contract clause at Chelsea, Mason Mount might have a higher chance of joining Liverpool in the summer.

Following Chelsea’s Champions League elimination and a rumored 30% wage cut for several of the team, Mason Mount may be getting closer to joining Liverpool in the summer.


The England international has not yet signed a new contract at Stamford Bridge despite soon nearing the final year of his present one, therefore it is not believed that he will be one of the players whose pay will be reduced.

Chelsea, who are presently ranked 11th in the Premier League, were eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday night by Real Madrid. Owner Todd Boehly implemented a new bonus scheme, which means that everybody who joined or signed a new contract since the American took over will see their pay reduced.

Due to the team’s failure to make the Champions League, Mount would have to accept a 30% pay cut if he decided to stay at Stamford Bridge longer.

According to reports, the 24-year-old makes £80,000 per week at Chelsea and is eager to sign a deal for £250,000 to remain in West London. According to the Express, Mount is believed to have recently rejected a contract offer of £200,000 per week.

It appears doubtful that Mount will get the deal he wants at a time when Boehly has to reduce player salaries at Chelsea. As a result, it is expected that Mount will be sold in the summer rather than be given the freedom to go for free in 2024, with Jurgen Klopp thought to be first in line to acquire the midfielder.


Since he was six years old, Mount has been a player for Chelsea, but if he cannot come to terms with a new deal at Stamford Bridge before the summer, it is thought that he would like to play for Klopp at Liverpool.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hints new Liverpool formation is here to stay – “It suits us”

With Liverpool finally “clicking” again in the 135th minute against Arsenal and Leeds, Jurgen Klopp has hinted that his new set-up is here to stay.

With his side in poor shape, Klopp moved his formation to a system closer to 3-5-2 in the last two games.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was central to both, moving from his natural right-back role to a position closer to midfield, allowing him to freely dictate play.

It took some time to settle in against both Arsenal and Leeds, but Klopp believes he really ‘clicked’ in the second half of the 2-2 draw with the Gunners. Speaking to Sky Sports following Liverpool’s 6-1 win against Leeds on Monday, Jamie Carragher asked the manager about his schedule behind the new formation.

In particular, Carragher asked Klopp if he was meant to get more out of Alexander-Arnold or to find a better defensive structure, with two midfielders sitting in the number 66 alongside Fabinho.

“It’s the best game we’ve played this season”?

Jürgen Klopp says his Liverpool side were ‘absolutely excellent’ against Leeds tonight?

“Because it’s Trent, it’s both,” he replied, before adding, “But overall you’re right. “We also have to protect ourselves better, because [in previous games] we gave away too many counter-attacks, we lost balls at the wrong time.

“Trent had a really good game, but once again, when we lost the ball, the reaction was completely different.

“We didn’t lose so many balls, because we were very calm on the ball.

“What we lost at the wrong time is obviously the goal we conceded. It’s no longer [a situation that] we can protect, but everyone else we need to be able to protect. “But the training suits us much better.”

While Liverpool have conceded three goals in their last two games, two came while still fit in the first half against Arsenal and the other came from an error by Ibrahima Konate at Leeds.

Overall, the Reds looked stronger defensively, while their eight goals scored – including six at Elland Road – are proof that this ‘super attacking formation’ can work.

“You think that to play better, first and foremost you have to take care of all the attacking things: dribbling, shooting, finishing,” Klopp continued.

“But you only get stability if you defend.

“We can be super attack-oriented – we have a super attacking formation with five, six players between and behind the lines – if we react at the right times. “I really can’t explain why our back pressure wasn’t there. We asked for it all the time, actually.

“But tonight it clicked. You actually clicked a lot in the second half against Arsenal.

“The direction we suddenly took in the game was because we were winning balls back.”

Liverpool have eight games to go in their bid for an improbable fourth-place finish, and Klopp concluded: “I hope these games and a half have given us the right signal for the rest of the season.”
