Premier League

Chelsea’s highest-paid players, with Mason Mount set to sign a new ‘double-your-money’ contract

Mason Mount, a midfielder for Chelsea, could become one of the club's highest-paid players after he was reportedly offered a lucrative new deal to stay at Stamford Bridge

The Premier League finally gave Todd Boehly permission to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich, and the new Blues management seems ready to offer 23-year-old Mount a big new contract that would more than triple his current salary. 

Mount currently makes about £80,000 per week, even though he won the club's player of the year award in each of the last two seasons. According to the inews report, Chelsea want to keep one of their best players by extending his current contract and giving him a big pay raise. 

Mount, who has been with the Blues since he was six years old, is also said to want to stay at Stamford Bridge longer. 

Mount has played 160 times for Chelsea since his debut in 2019. He has scored 30 goals and won the Champions League, Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup in the last year. 

The source said that his contract offer, which would be made official after the takeover is done because of Chelsea's sanctions, would be worth more than four times his current salary. 

Mount makes £88,462 per week, which, according to data from Sportrac, makes him the 17th highest-paid player on the team for the 2021/22 season. 

But if he got a raise that was more than twice what he makes now, he would be one of the top five earners at the club next year. 

Romelu Lukaku was bought from Inter Milan for a club record amount last summer. He is said to make the most money at the club, with a contract worth £325,000 per week. 

Next on the list is World Cup winner N'Golo Kante, who is said to make £290,000 a week, and then attacker Timo Werner, who is said to make £272,000 a week. 

Saul Niguez (£198,269) and Ben Chilwell (£190,000) are also in the top five, but Saul is only on loan from Atletico Madrid this season and is unlikely to stay past the summer.
