Chelsea fans will be hoping this is a sign of things to come under the new ownership, as tieing down players like Mount and James will be just as important as new signings.
The likes of Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Andreas Christensen are all out of contract this summer, and the new owner won’t want a repeat of these mistakes, as the aforementioned trio should have held enough value to make some money on.
Mount and James aren’t set to be out of contract this summer, but they will want to secure their signatures before it’s too late.
