Mount was a key player at Chelsea for several years and club legend John Terry urged him to play against him when he played against the fans for Man Utd.
Terry has surprisingly revealed that he knows something about the mountain's release that hasn't been made public, and Jacobs has given some insight into the former England captain's plans.
In his letter, Jacobs did his best to convey Chelsea's view of promotion, as well as the feeling that the player's side was wrong.
Former Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed in recent days that there is an untold story about Mason Mount leaving Chelsea, Jacobs wrote.
Mase is Chelsea herself”, Terry said during his one-man tour. There are always two sides to a story and I know the other side. I don't want to make it public, but there is another side to the story. Let's not be hard on him when he comes back.
Chelsea are taking the position that Mount wants to leave and have made it clear that he will not sign a new long-term contract. But Mountain Camp tells a slightly different story. They said oral discussions with Chelsea's owners last year were positive and successful. Then in January they claimed the goalposts had been moved. Chelsea sporting director Paul Winstanley took over the negotiations and offered him a fixed-term contract instead.
Chelsea sources said the aim was to increase Mount's value and protect him, and ultimately spend time finding a long-term solution that suits all parties. This is also disputed by those close to the mountain, who point out that much of the hard work put in at the end of 2022 was undone almost overnight and with very little back and forth.
The reality is that the parties were very much at odds over the terms of the contract and although they agreed to take the matter up again at the end of the season, when Mount moved to Manchester United he had a new Chelsea badge on his desk”. Had no counter.
Chelsea sources said it was clear Mount wanted to leave. The Highlanders say they would consider staying if the club made a clear and formal decision to keep the England midfielder.
There are two sides to the saga and now that Mount has moved to Old Trafford we may never know the truth. Chelsea say they would always have sold a player who wanted a new role that suited him and his family and Mount is unlikely to say he would have preferred to stay at Stamford Bridge after becoming a Manchester United player.
Therefore, both sides need to act”. It is important to note that Mount is still highly regarded at Chelsea and several experienced players are interested in him staying.
