A number of billionaire bidders are now scrapping it out to take control of the club – putting the Premier League giants on uncertain ground.

Mount, 23, admits he and his Chelsea team-mates are as unclear as everyone about what the future holds.

Speaking on England duty he said: “I’ve been at the club since I was six-years-old and something like this has not happened before, so it can be a concern.

“At the beginning, and even now, we don’t really know where it’s going and what’s happening the next day. So it’s difficult.

“But we focus on our football and what we can do is try and win as many games as we can.

“Obviously I’m away with England, so that stuff is kind of parked and I’m focusing on England duty and what I can do while I’m away.

“And then, when I go back to Chelsea next week, I’m sure we will be informed about what’s going on because I haven’t heard anything recently.”

His comments come as the preferred Chelsea bidders prepare to hold talks with manager Thomas Tuchel and Marina Granovskaia before a £2.5billion takeover.

Chelsea have whittled down their list of potential buyers to just a handful of consortiums.

The Blues are now set to choose from options that includes a group involving Seb Coe, ex-Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton and two American businessmen.

Another option is Todd Boehly and Hansjorg Wyss’ coalition.

Controversial American Tom Ricketts is also through to the next round while property developer Nick Candy remains an outside bet.

Boston Celtics owner Stephen Pagliuca has also made it onto the shortlist.

And according to The Times, all parties will be given the opportunity to hold talks with manager Tuchel and director Granovskaia.

Those talks could prove pivotal to swaying who is ultimately named as the preferred bidder.
