Mason Mount “free to leave Chelsea” as Liverpool offer potential transfer boost



Mason Mount “free to leave Chelsea” as Liverpool offer potential transfer boost

Liverpool continue to be linked with a move by Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount ahead of the summer transfer window

Liverpool may have received a significant boost as signals of interest in Mason Mount continue to grow.

The Reds have been heavily linked with the transfer of the Chelsea midfielder ahead of the summer transfer window. Mount’s current contract situation has also linked him with a number of other Premier League clubs.

Mount’s current contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer of 2025. Reports indicate the club and representatives of the 24-year-old have yet to agree new extension terms. According to Football Insider, Chelsea Mount have now announced they are free to find another club and will leave London this summer.

It has been reported that Mount’s wage demands are too high for Chelsea to meet, with a weekly salary of £180,000 reportedly being offered. However, it has been claimed that the midfielder wants a salary of around £250,000.

The report doesn’t stop there, Liverpool is also mentioned. It has been claimed that Mount is a big fan of Jurgen Klopp and would ‘take the chance’ to move to Anfield. Liverpool aren’t the only ones linked to a move to the Mount. Manchester United and Newcastle are also interested in the midfielder.


Comments from Mohamed Salah’s agent show that the situation at Liverpool has changed for him and his client

Mohamed Salah has once again been linked with a Liverpool exit but agent Ramy Abbas Issa has given Reds fans no reason to worry

Liverpool fans used to roll their eyes at Ramy Abbas Issa taking to social media.

Cryptic messages from Mohamed Salah’s agent about his client’s future frustrated anxious supporters last season. With the Egyptian’s contract expiring in 2023 and heading into the final 12 months of his deal, the last thing they wanted to see was Abbas ‘paying attention’ on Twitter.

Asked about the striker’s future last March when it looked like an agreement on a new contract could not be reached, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp told reporters: “Mo definitely expects that this club is ambitious. That’s what we were in recent years and that’s what we are. “We can’t do much more, that’s how it is. But I don’t think it’s about that. It’s pretty much Mo’s decision. The club did what the club can do. That’s how it is. “Nothing bad to say. It’s fine from my point of view. It’s exactly how it should be right now. Everything is settled. Nothing else happened, no signing, no rejection or whatever.” “We just have to wait. It’s okay. No rush in that situation.”

Within an hour, Abbas was making a splash about him on Twitter. Without saying a word, his array of seven smiley emojis seemed to contradict Klopp’s claims.

In July he was there again. A lone crying laughing emoji this time, which even prompted a reaction from Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

“All reds love your client and if he has to leave next summer, we wish him well and say a big thank you,” the former defense attorney wrote, quoting Abbas’s first message. “But we can live without this cryptic shit for the next 12 months! @MoSalah join the conversation!!”

“We just have to wait for that. It’s perfectly fine. No rush in this situation.”

Within an hour, Abbas spoke on Twitter. Without saying a word, his string of seven laughing emojis seemingly denied Klopp’s claims.

In July he was back. A lone crying laughing emoji this time, which even prompted a reaction from Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

“All reds love your client and if he has to leave next summer, we wish him well and say a big thank you,” the former defense attorney wrote, quoting Abbas’s first message. “But we can live without this cryptic shit for the next 12 months! @MoSalah join the conversation!!”

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s own official Twitter account quoted that message from Abbas with a facepalm emoji… but shortly after it broke it was just a ruse and part of the club’s plan to announce that Salah was indeed signing a new and improved deal in 2025, which would make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history. “We fooled them all,” Carragher later joked to Salah and Abbas. The relieved Liverpool fans didn’t believe him. Like all of us, the former defender was surprised.

By the time of Salah’s extra time, the Reds had just finished a season in which they nearly scored an unprecedented four goals and their star striker won the Premier League Golden Boot. Tying his future to the club, more of the same was expected. But although Salah has scored 22 times for Liverpool this season, it has been tough for the Reds. Currently sixth in the Premier League, his hopes of finishing in the top four this year hang in the balance.

Meanwhile, a 6-2 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid saw them bow out of the Champions League with a roar in the round of 16, ending their trophy hopes this season.

Ever since Salah was spotted having lunch with Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi in January amid Liverpool’s struggles on the pitch, his future has been under scrutiny on the continent. As a result, Abbas took to Twitter twice to give his thoughts on the latest reports, though this time it elicited a very different response from Kopites. “Nonsense,” he wrote last month, in the wake of their 5-2 humiliation against Real Madrid at Anfield, in response to a tweet saying Salah was “willing to leave Liverpool if the Reds fail to qualify for the Champions League”. “This was never thought of or considered. Not qualifying for the Champions League didn’t even cross our minds.”

And he spoke again today as new reports suggest once again that Salah may be looking to leave Liverpool following their Champions League exit. The only difference this time is that a move to La Liga rather than PSG has been discussed, as has often been the case since that meeting with Al-Khelaifi in January.

“Where did you get it if Mohamed and I didn’t discuss it too?” Abbas quoted a tweet to the journalist in question reporting this “exclusive transfer”. He added, “Please tell us.”

Of course, not discussing such a topic yet doesn’t mean it can’t happen this summer, but for now, it’s abundantly clear what’s on Salah’s mind. Namely, scoring the goals that will secure the Reds against all odds qualification for next season’s Champions League.

While overseas reports could speculate on his future, there was no indication that he might leave the home club. Having signed his new long-term contract last summer, there is every reason to be more calm about his situation, unlike the uncertainty of 12 months ago.

How times change. During Liverpool’s first unwelcome flirtation with the Champions League prospect, or indeed during its deserted years away from Europe’s top table, they have become accustomed to their star players contemplating their future.

Steven Gerrard admitted on the eve of the Reds’ 3-1 Champions League win against Olympiacos in December 2004 that he might have considered leaving his beloved Liverpool if they didn’t qualify. Even when he got his hands on the European Cup the following May, he was still flirting with the idea of ​​walking away.

And as the Reds legend has stood firm, Javier Mascherano, Fernando Torres and Raheem Sterling would all have pushed for the exit without the lure of Champions League football to keep them at Anfield. In the case of Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, even qualifying for the prestigious tournament was not enough to stay.

But for all those players, Liverpool was just a bridesmaid. Despite their struggles this year and the uncertainty that awaits them, I am now a bride who has won every great honor bestowed upon them with
Salah breaks records in attack.

If the Reds are out of the Champions League next season, speculation about the striker’s future will continue. If their absence lasts more than a year, the 30-year-old can leave. This is inevitable.

But Liverpool are still a long way from such a scenario and Salah is still fighting hard for that top four spot. In addition to that, further silvers and records in the next season. You would expect nothing less from the Egyptian king.

Frankly, there would have been little hard feelings if he had asked to leave in the summer. But such a prospect seems unrealistic at the moment.

It would take a hefty fee and hefty salary to get him away from Anfield on that new contract, regardless of a top four finish. As he turns 31 this summer, few clubs would be able to meet such hypothetical conditions.

Mohamed Salah is a Liverpool legend. When the time comes for him to leave Anfield, he will leave as one of the Reds’ greatest ever players.

While reports from abroad may indicate that day may come sooner than anyone would like, Abbas’ message is clear. He said exactly what Kopites wanted to hear, but those are also words that hardly need to be said.
