The England international midfielder currently earns £80,000 per week and has 17 months left on his deal.
Talks over an extension have reached an impasse, as the latest offer was below what other senior players earn.
Chelsea have offered Mount significantly less, and talks have been postponed.
The 24-year-old has been a regular in the Blues’ starting XI since 2019-20 and has played 125 league games.
Mount has registered 27 league goals and 22 assists within that timeframe.
He is one of the club’s most influential players and deserves to pocket as much as their highest earners.
The Englishman is not among Chelsea’s top 20 highest-paid players but deserves to be in the top 10.
Mount will be keen to remain with his boyhood club having won the Champions League with them.
The club have recruited heavily since last summer, but the academy graduate will fancy his chances of retaining his spot in the line-up.
Both sides will need to reach an agreement soon as he approaches the last 12 months of his deal.
Chelsea could be forced to sell Mount if he has not renewed his contract by the summer.
He will not be short of suitors if he becomes available, and plenty of them will be monitoring his situation.
Manager Graham Potter will be keen to hold on to one of his best and most consistent players, and the Blues have to reward Mount will a suitable deal.
