Mason Mount ‘will more than DOUBLE his £80,000-a-week wages at Chelsea once Todd Boehly’s takeover is complete’ as a reward for his fine form with Thomas Tuchel keen to build his team around the England midfield star
- Mason Mount’s £80,000 a week is currently one of the lowest wages at Chelsea
- He was the Blues’ top scorer (11) and assister (10) in the Premier League this year
- The 23-year-old has been Chelsea’s player of the year for two seasons in a row
- Mount’s wages are set to ‘more than double’ after the Todd Boehly-led takeover
The 23-year-old has developed into one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and is a key member of both the Chelsea and England set ups.
Mount picked up 11 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League this season and was the only Chelsea player to reach double figures for either.

Despite his impressive season – that also saw Mount win a second player of the year award in as many seasons – he remains one of the lowest paid players at the club with a weekly wage of £80,000.
However, that is set to change if Chelsea’s planned takeover goes through with The I reporting that Mount’s wages will more than double if the club is bought successfully.
They also claim Mount is happy to commit his long-term future to his boyhood club, as they look to build a team around him that can compete with Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Portsmouth-born midfielder has already picked up a Champions League, Club Winners Cup and European Super Cup from his 160 Chelsea appearances.
Chelsea are reportedly willing to double Mount’s wages after the takeover led by Todd Boehly
In many respects Chelsea have had a good season season, securing a comfortable third place finish in the league and an FA Cup final in spite of off-field uncertainty caused by owner Roman Abramovich’s links to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
They were a long way off the pace for much of the title race though, and will be looking to push their rivals closer next season.
Hanging on to Mason Mount could be vital if Chelsea are to have any chance of breaking Liverpool and Man City’s duopoly at the top of the Premier League.
