Bayern Munich is reportedly joining the race to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount. According to The Sun, Thomas Tuchel, who recently took over as the new manager of Bayern Munich, is said to be a huge fan of Mount and wants to sign him for his new club. However, there has been no contact between the two parties so far, and Tuchel is expected to take some time to evaluate his squad before making any transfer plans.
Mount, who is in a contract stand-off with Chelsea, was one of Tuchel’s favorite players during his time as Chelsea manager. Tuchel was recently sacked by Chelsea in September, but he is now back in work with the German giants Bayern Munich.
Mount has just over a year left on his current contract with Chelsea, and talks have stalled over a new one. The 24-year-old midfielder is currently recovering from a groin injury and is hoping to be fit for Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League match.
Bayern Munich is a six-times European champion and is known for its prowess in the transfer market. The club has a history of signing some of the best players in the world, and Mason Mount could be their next target. However, Chelsea is unlikely to let go of one of their best players without a fight.
It remains to be seen whether Bayern Munich will approach Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly about striking a deal in the summer. Tuchel is expected to take at least three or four matches to evaluate his new squad before drawing up any transfer plans for the summer.
The potential signing of Mason Mount by Bayern Munich could be a significant boost for the German giants, as they look to maintain their position in the top-flight of European football. However, it would be a major blow for Chelsea, who would lose one of their key players to a rival club. The coming months will be crucial, and football fans will be eagerly watching to see how this transfer saga unfolds.
