EPL: It’s hard – Lampard opens up on Mason Mount’s contract situation at Chelsea


Chelsea caretaker manager, Frank Lampard has opened up on midfielder Mason Mount’s contract situation at the club.

Mount is about to enter the final year of his contract with Chelsea.

The England international and Chelsea have failed to reach an agreement over a new deal.

The 24-year-old is likely to leave Chelsea this summer, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United all interested in signing him.

If no extension is agreed, it will mean Mount is free to begin negotiating with other clubs at the start of next year.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League tie with Manchester United on Thursday, Lampard admitted that it is hard for him to comment on the situation because he is not in Mount’s head, wishing him the best.

“It is a hard one for me to comment on because I am not inside Mason’s head and from the club’s point of view, my role is clearly what it is.

“In the practical sense, it is completely between both sides on that front. I’m not surprised because this is football. Does everyone know that I really like Mason Mount as a lad and as a football player? Yes, sure, of course, they do.

“I wish him the best personally and sitting here with my Chelsea top on now, I have seen what Mason has delivered at this club. But we will see,” he said.
