He is currently on a deal worth around £80,000-per-week with Chelsea said to be offering siognicantly less than what they are paying the likes of Raheem Sterling, who joined the club from Manchester City last summer.
Negotiations are expected to resume with Blues boss Graham Potter hopeful the club can resolve his future soon.
‘I think it’s always complicated, there is always negotiation,’ Potter said in February.
‘It’s best I leave it between Mason and the club, that is the best way for that to be dealt with as far as I’m concerned. He’s been fantastic to work with, an important player for us, and of course, I hope it gets resolved quickly.’
Chelsea have a number of players who are approaching the final 12 months of their respective contracts at Stamford Bridge.
Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are among those whose deals expire in 2024 along with midfielders Mount and Mateo Kovacic, with Manchester City interested in signing the Croatia international.
