Declan Rice or Mason Mount may not be able to join the Blues’ lineup when the new season begins.
Mason Mount received a mysterious message from Declan Rice on social media as both players enter a pivotal summer for their careers in London. Mount has been enjoying some time off the field in Spain as he nears a transfer away from his childhood club, with Manchester United in talks to sign him.
He has already addressed recent transfer rumors while watching the Spanish F1 Grand Prix in Barcelona. Sky Sports reporter Martin Brundle spotted him on the grid walk and inquired about a prospective transfer to Old Trafford.
You’re moving to Manchester United, he said. said Brundle to Mount. The 24-year-old midfielder responded, “No, I’m just here to enjoy this race today. It’s been a great day, and I can’t wait to watch it. Reece James and Ben Chilwell, teammates at Chelsea, both had their own opinions.
Everyone will be sad to see Mount leave, James added, “Of course.” In the meantime, Chilwell said, “I’d love for him to stay, but it’s none of my concern personally. I would love for him to stay because he is my best friend, but it is none of my business.
Mount appears more and more likely to be leaving the team as the days pass and no steps are taken to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge. However, Rice is also on his way out of West Ham, with teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich interested in signing him.
The England star still has one year left on his contract, but before attention shifts to deciding where he will go next, there is the Europa Conference League final to concentrate on. For communication with his best friend, while Mount, Chilwell, and James are all on vacation, Rice has turned to social media.
Rice commented on Mount’s Instagram photo in response to his meeting with some of the top names in Formula One, including Max Verstappen and Yuki Tsunoda, by writing: “Yes Max family good??” The duo’s ongoing bromance has caused internet outrage among fans.
According to one user, “True Chelsea fans want you both at Chelsea to usher in the next era of success – the next JT & Lamps.” “Declan brr, talk to ur bro not go out rival team seeing mount leave the bridge is so sad form,” another person chimed in. “You two had best join Chelsea and develop into the players you should be… But if you choose Manchester, bye. third was added.
As Chelsea competes to begin next season with at least one of them in its ranks, both players are expected to be high on the priority list for many of the top teams during a window devoted to the movement of midfielders.
