Chelsea Star Mason Mount Unhappy With New Signing Kai Havertz, More Competition
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is unhappy with the signing of Kai Havertz at the club which will now reduce his game time at Stamford Bridge, MySportDab reports.
The Blues sealed a deal for the former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder this week as part of Frank Lampard’s £230m summer transfer spending spree.
Havertz now at Chelsea will provide more competition in the attacking midfield for Mason Mount.
Mount played in every single Premier League match for Lampard’s team in his debut campaign last season.
Now, According to German Newspaper BILD, The 21-year-old is not happy at Chelsea signing a new mega-money player for his position.
The English player greeted new signing Thiago Silva on social media with a tweet but has refused to do the same for Kai Havertz.
Havertz can play anywhere in the attacking front three but he is more likely to be used in the attacking midfield role.
