Chelsea have reportedly remained confident of keeping midfielder Mason Mount, despite rumours linking him away from the club.
The England international has been said to be growing unhappy about his role within the Blues squad, leading to reported interest from European giants Liverpool and Real Madrid.
However, according to The Mirror, the Champions League winners remain relaxed about the the future of the 22-year-old, who reportedly has a strong relationship with manager Thomas Tuchel.
Mount sees his current deal at Stamford Bridge come to an end in 2024, and the club’s lack of speed in renewing his deal is expected to be down to the imminent expiry of several defenders’ contracts in the squad.
The Englishman has started just six of their 12 Premier League games so far this season, after featuring 36 times in the top flight last term while also starring in their Champions League triumph, providing the assist for Kai Havertz‘s winning goal in the final against Manchester City.
He has now made 122 appearances for his boyhood club, scoring 20 goals and providing 17 assists, while his 26 England caps have produced four international goals.
