Mason Mount to Actual Madrid
Real Madrid reportedly have their eyes on a surprise transfer deal for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount following the sacking of Frank Lampard.
According to Don Balon, Florentino Perez is a huge fan of Mount who has long been considered one of the most promising young players on the Stamford Bridge books.
The England international could certainly do a job for one of Europe’s elite clubs, even if he is still inexperienced at the time.
Don Balon claim Mount was most negative about Lampard’s sacking this week, and the report suggests that Real Madrid may get the opportunity to snatch him.
The Spanish outlet also mentions Real’s interest in Mount’s Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kante, but it’s fair to imagine the Blues aren’t looking to sell that many key first-team players.
