Boehly to make sure world class defender is signed up by Chelsea
New Chelsea owner Ted Boehly will look to hand Reece James a new contract at Stamford Bridge when he officially takes over
Boehly’s ownership group, which includes Hansjorg Wyss, Mark Walker and investment firm Clearlake Capital, have agreed a deal worth around £4.25 billion to purchase the west London club.
And it has been revealed on the Goal website that the new owner wants to make sure that one of the clubs most important players will be signed up to a nice new contract
It has been claimed that Boehly is very concerned that a number of players are coming towards the end of their contracts and could leave the club just like Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen – who have both reportedly agreed contracts away from the club
Mount has six goals this season for the club and is one of the most important players in the squad – as he is one player that Thomas Tuchel knows he can rely on.
There has been some big clubs sniffing around the club over a potential deal for the England International – so if he gets that contract that he desires and is paid like he should be – there will be no issues
But it will be interesting to see just how much Thomas Tuchel is handed in the transfer window to improve this side as we all know that American owners are there to make money – not to spend millions on players and managers
But we will be glad when James gets that new deal that will end the immediate speculation
