According to reports, Chelsea may have Mason Mount back from injury far sooner than they anticipated.
The Sun reports that the England international is hoping to return against Manchester United in the Premier League next week.
Mount’s season has been hampered by a slew of injuries that have prevented him from seeing regular action.
He just underwent surgery to address an existing condition that has limited his availability in recent months.
Fitness difficulties almost probably impacted his productivity this year. After reaching double digits in both goals and assists in the Premier League last season, he has only five this season.
This has undoubtedly contributed to the Blues’ disappointing season, with their ‘terrific’ star underperforming this time around.
It is now claimed that he is pushing to return to the pitch before the end of the season, with the game at Old Trafford being mooted as a possible venue.
While he has not yet played his final game in a Chelsea shirt, reports say that he will quit the club at the end of the season.
There appears to be a significant gap between the organization and the player regarding a prospective new deal.
Despite claims that Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the 24-year-old and would like the club to resolve his contract predicament before he takes over at Stamford Bridge, the situation remains fluid.
Mount’s intensity is exactly what the Argentine wants from his players, and he appears to be a wonderful fit for him if he stays at the club.
