Mason Mount appoints new agent as Chelsea exit looms

Chelsea star Mason Mount has appointed a new agent to manage his future amid rumors that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The Daily Mail reports that the England international has chosen Roof's Neil Fewings to handle the contract extension talks with the Blues.

Mount's contract in west London is ready to expire, but despite initiating extension discussions with the team early in the season, they haven't yet reached an understanding.

The talks have reached an impasse, with Chelsea reportedly reluctant to improve their initial bid, communicating to the player that they’ve ‘made their final offer.’

After leaving his previous management company, Stellar Football, to take care of Mason's future, Mount's father, Tony, has been in charge of his son's well-being for the past 18 months.

The 24-year-old midfielder is now thinking about leaving his childhood club, but Chelsea's steadfast attitude in lengthy negotiations has led the two to seek expert help.

Notwithstanding the impasse, Graham Potter's club has regularly utilized the highly regarded playmaker this season, with 23 Premier League matches.

But if Potter's employers don't alter their behavior, Mount might be leaving the Bridge at the end of the current campaign.

Mount has been pursued by Liverpool and Newcastle United for a while, with Manchester United recently joining the chase.

Since Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara have been under intense scrutiny as a result of the Reds' utterly disappointing season, Jürgen Klopp is searching for a new creative midfielder.

It's difficult to envisage Mount relocating to St James' Park, despite the fact that the Magpies are also in the running as Eddie Howe works tirelessly to lead them to Champions League qualification for the first time in 20 years.
