The whispers about Mason Mount wanting to move to Liverpool always sounded like total nonsense, and today Matt Law of the Telegraph has decided to put them firmly where they belong – in the bin.
His piece outlines exactly what we already knew. Mount is happy at Chelsea, and focused on adding more trophies to his collection.
The stories have perhaps bubbled up in recent weeks because of a slow start to the season for the midfielder, both in terms of his form and because of this wisdom teeth issue that has kept him out of recent games.
Now he’s back, and faces a big fight for his place in the team, we expect him to take his game back to the top level, and help this team compete for both the Premier League and Champions League in the coming months.
His new contract will come in time – as Law says, there are far more pressing matters on that front.
