Liverpool Is Looking for a Rival Exodus
This summer, Chelsea is expected to oversee a massive departure to take control of a large team. As Blues co-owner Todd Boehly prepares for crucial contract negotiations with 15 first-team stars to determine who is committed to his project, Liverpool and Manchester City could benefit. Graham Potter is in charge of a 32-man squad at Stamford Bridge, probably contributing to his poor results.
The Telegraph reports that any player Potter wants to keep but doesn’t want to sign a new deal for at least three years will be put in the shop window. Mason Mount, a graduate of Cobham who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer, is the subject of the majority of current interest. The 24-year-old midfielder is reportedly wanted by a few teams, including Liverpool and Man City.
Furthermore, he could leave Chelsea as soon as the season ends if his demands for a new contract to make him one of the club’s highest-paid players are unmet. After the season, several well-known players may become available for sniping, with 15 meetings of the requirements. According to the report, with less than two and a half years remaining on their current contracts in west London, Boehly will give priority to those squad members. Therefore, players are still uncertain about what the future holds for them in the club.
