According to Fabrizio Romano’s reports, Chelsea star Mason Mount has been waiting for the club to offer him a new contract for months now.
The club has had their hands tied for a few months now, since the UK government imposed sanctions on the club, preventing them from signing new contracts with players.

Not an urgent situation btw, as current deal expires in June 2024.
It is not clear from Romano’s statements if Mount had been expecting a contract even before the sanctions were imposed.
Regardless, having Mount and Reece James sign a new deal is just as important as signing new players this summer.
