EPL: I don’t get that – Ex-Chelsea attacker questions Boehly over Mount decision
Former Chelsea attacker, Tony Cascarino, has insisted that he is surprised at Chelsea owners under the leadership of Todd Boehly not doing all they can to get midfielder, Mason Mount to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
Mount will enter the final 12 months of his deal at Chelsea this summer and contract talks have stalled.
The England international has been linked with a move to Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich this summer.
. Speaking on talkSPORT, Cascarino said, “They [Chelsea owners] have invested all this money into transfers and bringing in new players, and Mason is only just turned 24, he is an England regular.
“I knew there were things going on at the start of the season, that there was something going on with Mason that did not seem right and Chelsea did not seem to want to get too involved in negotiating then.
“They are still in the same place now and I don’t get it.”
He added, “Bayern Munich are interested as well, so there’s Bayern, Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal – you could argue four or the ten biggest clubs in Europe, if not the world, they all want him, but Chelsea aren’t going to push the boat out to keep him? I don’t get that.”
