Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is gathering interest from three European giants. It is understood that Real Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are all showing interest in recruiting the Blues playmaker whose current contract at Stamford Bridge is set to run out in the summer of 2024.

Mount’s Decent Season At The English Capital 

Mount is having a solid campaign with the West London giants despite missing a few games for them because of injury. The England international has found the back of the net on three occasions and grabbed two assists in 14 matches for Chelsea this season in all competitions.

The Portsmouth-born sensation has given a good account of himself by averaging 1.0 tackles, 1.8 shots and 1.2 key passes per game in Premier League football. He has even taken care of the ball well when distributing possession in the opposition half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 87.7% in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Can Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel Afford To Lose Mount?

Mount is a solid tackler of the ball and can create some inviting chances for his teammates in the attacking end of the field. He can also strike the ball purely and with a lot of power which makes him a real goal-threat from long range. The Chelsea youth product is even an accurate passer of the ball but needs to make more runs towards the opponent’s penalty area if he wants to rediscover his form from last season.

At the moment, Mount has no reason to be unhappy at Stamford Bridge. Thomas Tuchel seems to have the right formula to get the best out of the 26-time England international in the coming seasons.

The way Mount has been playing over the past 18 months, the Blues simply cannot afford to lose him. When the English sensation is fit and playing well on the field, he is one of the first names in Tuchel’s teamsheet. Thus, Chelsea would be wise to reject any offers they receive for Mount as he could help bring even more success to the London club in the not-too-distant future.
