Chelsea ready to double Mount wages

Chelsea are ready to double the wages of Mason Mount.

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.
