Chelsea to Accelerate Contract Talks with Mason Mount

Chelsea Football Club is reportedly planning to speed up contract negotiations with midfielder Mason Mount following the imminent appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager. According to 90min, the club intends to intensify discussions with Mount regarding a new contract.

The 24-year-old has been a crucial player for both Chelsea and the England national team, and the club is eager to secure his long-term commitment. With 12 months remaining on his current contract, Chelsea is determined to extend it in order to fend off interest from other clubs.

Chelsea has been engaged in talks with Pochettino regarding the possibility of him becoming their next head coach. The former Tottenham boss is set to sign as the next Chelsea manager following several discussions. Football Transfers reports that Chelsea has initiated discussions with Pochettino, who has emerged as the favorite after the club held talks with former Barcelona and Spain manager Luis Enrique, as well as Julian Nagelsmann, the former Bayern Munich coach who was sacked in March.

While nothing has been finalized yet, The Guardian anticipates that confirmation of Pochettino's appointment will come soon. The former Tottenham manager will need patience as Chelsea looks to rebuild following a challenging season. The 51-year-old will inherit a squad with an excess of players at Stamford Bridge. As Chelsea won't be competing in Europe next season, they have invested nearly £600m in new signings over the past year. To balance the financial books and comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, player sales will be necessary.

According to ESPN, Pochettino's coaching staff is expected to include his long-time assistant, Jesus Perez, as well as first-team coach Miguel D'Agostino, goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez, and his sports scientist son, Sebastiano. Although Pochettino won't officially commence work for several weeks, it is anticipated that he will discuss summer transfer targets with co-controlling owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, as the upcoming transfer window is expected to be busy at Stamford Bridge.

In conclusion, following the imminent appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager, Chelsea is preparing to accelerate contract negotiations with Mason Mount. Pochettino is expected to take charge at the end of the season, and the club is eager to secure Mount's future. While the appointment has yet to be officially confirmed, it is anticipated that the announcement will come soon.

Pochettino will face the challenge of managing a bloated squad at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea looks to rebuild after a difficult season. Pochettino's coaching team is projected to include familiar faces, such as Jesus Perez and Miguel D'Agostino, among others.
