Report: Tuchel has „strong interest“ in Mason Mount
Immediately after Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at FC Bayern, the Munich club was linked with numerous professionals from Chelsea FC. According to current media reports, the 49-year-old is particularly interested in the English international Mason Mount.
With co-trainer Anthony Barry, Bayern have already fulfilled Thomas Tuchel’s first wish transfer. With Mason Mount, the first desired player could follow in the summer. Mount is also currently under contract with Chelsea FC, but is considering leaving the Blues at the end of the season.
The Athletic reports that contract talks between the club and the player are currently on hold. The 24-year-old is still tied to Chelsea until 2024. According to the portal, London no longer seriously expect the attacking midfielder to sign a new contract and are preparing for a departure in the summer.
Is Tuchel luring Mount to FC Bayern?
According to „The Athletic“ information, there are numerous top clubs interested in Mount. In addition to Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, FC Bayern also seems to be among them. Thomas Tuchel in particular is said to have a strong interest in his former player.
Interestingly, as the British newspaper „The Guardian“ has learned, Mount is open to a move to the German record champions. This is mainly due to Tuchel. The offensive all-rounder would be happy about a „reunion“ with the new FCB coach. However, according to the paper, there have been no concrete activities on the part of the Munich side in the direction of Mount so far.
According to rumours, Chelsea’s financial pain threshold is 50 million pounds, which corresponds to just under 60 million euros. The market value of the English international is estimated at 65 million euros.
