Chelsea boss Graham Potter has given an update on Mason Mount’s future at the club amid interest from Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United.
The 24-year-old midfielder’s current deal expires in 2024 and he is yet to agree a new Chelsea contract.
Potter admitted that he would love Mount to stay at the club on a personal level, although insists it is best to let both parties sort a deal.
“Ultimately it is between the club and Mason,” the Chelsea manager said in a press conference.
“I have spoken to him numerous times about his situation, football and life generally. My feelings for Mason are clear. He is a fantastic person firstly but sometimes these things happen.
“They are just complicated and it is best that I speak little about it, let them get on with it in deciding what is right for both parties.
“I am not naive. I know it is an important time for him and an important contract. These things have to be right for him and his family. It’s important he makes a decision on that basis.”
