Barcelona are readying a shock move for Mason Mount, reports say.
Manager Xavi has rapidly got the Camp Nou outfit firing on all cylinders after a poor start to the term.
And the club icon is targeting an eye-catching summer overhaul in his attempt to reclaim the La Liga trophy he lifted eight times as a player.
And FootMercato report he wants the Blues and England attacking midfielder Mason as part of his bright revolution.
The 23-year-old is one of the first names on Chelsea’s teamsheet under the German manager Thomas Tuchel having been given his shot in the senior team under then-boss Frank Lampard in 2019-20.
Since then, the academy graduate has racked up close to 100 Premier League games and earned 27 international caps.
He was on the club’s ‘untouchable’ list, but considering the uncertainty surrounding their future – with the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich slapped with heavy sanctions shortly after putting his club up for sale – Blaugrana are looking to take advantage.
The Spanish tactician is now set to test the Premier League giants’ resolve by launching a summer transfer swoop to add Mason to his young core of fledgling superstars, including Ronald Araujo, Gavi, Ansu Fati and Pedri.
