New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly ‘prioritising new contracts for Reece James and Mason Mount’ after £4.25bn takeover


CHELSEA’S incoming owner Todd Boehley is expected to prioritise new contracts for Reece James and Mason Mount, reports suggest.

American billionaire Boehly and his consortium have signed an agreement to buy the club from Roman Abramovich in a deal reportedly worth around £4.25billion.

And according to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, the soon-to-be new Stamford Bridge regime are looking to tie James and Mount down to new deals.

The Blues have not been allowed to buy or sell players ever since departing owner Abramovich was hit with sanctions by the UK government following Russia’s unjust invasion of Ukraine.

The West Londoners have also been prohibited from negotiating new contracts for current players, such as James and Mount who are among the lowest-paid members of the roster and are attracting interest from rivals.

Marcos Alonso, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona as his contract runs out next year, is also waiting for the new owners to take charge until he decides on his future.

Jacobs tweeted: “Marcos Alonso to Barcelona is not a given yet even if it’s an attractive move to him.

“Unlike Toni Rudiger, he was always prepared to wait for new owners to come in then assess future.

“Chelsea’s soon-to-be new owners also want to offer new deals to Reece James and Mason Mount.”

James has put together a series of stunning performances this season and has been linked with Real Madrid.

Mount has also stood out ever since his return from loan at Derby in 2019 and SunSport understand Premier League rivals Liverpool as well as Manchester City are watching closely.

Boehly, who part-owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, is poised to run Chelsea despite a last-gasp £4bn offer from Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The businessman and his team, which includes billionaires Mark Walter, Hansjorg Wyss and investment firm Clearlake Capital, still face more hurdles before they officially take charge.

It is expected the Premier League will approve the takeover, but only after the completion of an owners’ and directors’ test,

Government approval will also be required for the proceeds to be transferred from the account.
