Why Mason Mount is Currently More Valuable Than Lionel Messi


It looks like Chelsea's Mason Mount is already a superstar as he was rated amongst most valuable player in the world in which he was placed above the Barcelona's captain and 6th Ballon d'Or winner, Lionel Messi.

According to the latest data published by the CIES Football Observatory, Chelsea's Mason Mount's estimated valuation of £91million automatically makes him the 19th most valuable player in Europe as France and PSG baller, Kylian Mbappe was named as the 1st most valuable player in Europe at estimated valuation of £231million.

However, Lionel Messi once named Mason Mount amongst the younger players to take after him, but it was sort of amazing that Mount could be estimated above the Almighty Lionel Messi. The Argentine is the 22nd most valuable player in Europe with an estimated valuation of £89million, and Mount is superior to the Barcelona's captain with just £2million. Mason Mount is Chelsea's Academy product who spent last season on loan at Derby County and it's so unbelievable to see him above the Blaugranas captain.

Here are 3 likely reasons why Mason Mount is currently valuable than Lionel Messi:-

1. On-field Performances:-

Undoubtedly, the Barcelona's captain is aging and he has no much energy to be running after ball on the field while Mount's blood is still young and fresh, Mason Mount is such an opponent's chaser on the field as he always run after the oppositions on the pitch.

Though, Messi’s number of goal contributions are way more than Mount's, the Argentine has netted 19 goals and registered 12 assists in  LaLiga this season while Mount netted 6 goals and registered 5 assists in all competitions for the Blues this season. However, Mason Mount's numbers in his first season at Premier League are more than satisfactory being his first season at the league,  and he's already registered himself amongst the finest young player in the league.

2. Age:-

Frankly, Mason Mount hasn't achieved what Lionel Messi in a season but the Englishman still has age on his side. As at now, Mount is enjoying a sensational season in Premier League at the age of 21 while the Argentine is 32. Therefore, the 21-year-old still has room for improvement and he's currently far from hitting his prime and has plenty of room to improve and fulfil his potential.

Mount is just 21 and he's been making waves, he had a breakthrough season at Derby County last season and this season at Chelsea under the same coach. There's this something Frank Lampard sight in Mount before he could put him in his starting XI.


3. Contract Length:-

Apparently, Lionel Messi's contract with Barcelona would expire soon and he's yet to pen another contract with the Blaugranas while Mount's tender years is presumably one of the key reasons behind why he's currently superior to the Argentine as per current valuation

The Blues Academy graduate still has plenty of years remaining on his existing contract at Stamford Bridge that would make him stay with the Blues till 2024, and there's possibility that Chelsea could still extend his contract and within this duration he could still dazzle amazingly and unbelievably.

Surprisingly, Mason Mount has extremely established and still establishing himself among the Premier League's finest young talents under the charismatic leadership of Frank Lampard, and the Blues boss has been improvising the Englishman so bad having seen his performance at the league this season.
