According to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Chelsea star Mason Mount is demanding a salary of around €290,000-a-week to join Manchester City in the summer.

With just over a year to run on his current deal, Mount is prepared to leave Chelsea in the summer amid interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.

Plettenberg tweeted: “Talks about a new contract beyond 2024 are still very complicated.

“Chelsea is aware of the fact that Liverpool is pushing for him!

“MCFC is also interested in signing him. Biggest problem: His salary demands! Understand that there are demands from around €5m to €15m/year.”
