Mason Mount bidding war
Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool have all been linked with a switch for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount this summer, with his contract nearing the final 12-months. With such interest, Fabrizio Romano claims that the Blues are attempting to create a bidding war over the 24-year-old.
He said: "This is what they [Chelsea] want, they want to start a bidding war for Mason Mount. They want more than £80million for Mason Mount. But he's out of contract next summer and this is not an easy situation to handle because the expectation around the player is for the price tag to be different, to be less than £80million.
"But Chelsea are still there and they want important money to let Mason Mount go. For sure Manchester United are there, for sure Liverpool and Arsenal are also interested. What Chelsea hope is a bidding war."
