Chelsea could sell Mason Mount in the summer to trim down their squad for next season but it might be a mistake as earlier.
It is no secret that Chelsea needs to crop down their squad in the summer transfer window but new owner Todd Boehly needs to be very cautious about the catastrophic mistake done earlier. With new signings David Datro Fofana, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Noni Madueke joining the club in the January transfer window, Potter has a long list of attacking options sitting on the bench. This is not a good situation for a club as might cause too much confusion in the manager’s mind. Due to this, Chelsea have struggled in recent times and the club will face tough for a European spot next season.
Raheem Sterling, João Felix, and Kai Havertz are Potter’s favorites to start in the attacking line and they’ve also begun to strike up a good partnership in recent weeks. This meant, Mason Mount who is currently out due to injury, has been dropped to the bench for two of Chelsea’s last four fixtures.
The 24-year-old has more than a year left in his contract and might leave the club due to lack of game time. As reported, Chelsea could leave Mount if a bid of £50 million comes in this summer.
But the Blues will be very cautious about the fact that Mount doesn’t leave for a rival Premier League club. However, there were many sales in recent years for Chelsea which can be termed as big mistakes.
SELLING MOUNT CAN BE A REPEATING MISTAKE FOR CHELSEA
If Chelsea sells Mason Mount in the summer, they are making the same mistakes as earlier. Arjen Robben was an instant hit after joining PSV in 2004, however, he was then allowed to leave for Real Madrid after 3 years. Arguably the most controversial was Daniel Sturridge’s sale to Liverpool in January 2013. Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne are examples of who later become world-class footballers. In recent times, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have excelled in Seria A after leaving the club in 2021.
Chelsea will hear offers for Mason Mount in the summer and it might become costly for the club again. Under new ownership, the Blues will like more new signings which means some big names have to leave the club in the summer. Potter will get another season to prove his point at Stamford Bridge.
