MASON MOUNT is getting ready to join Chelsea’s pre-season campaign as he already started training during his holiday.
Mount is enjoying some much-deserved time off in the Greek island of Mykonos after a stunning Euro 2020 campaign that saw England making it to the final.
COMPETITION: SPOT THE BALL TO WIN A CAR AND CASH
The attacking midfielder is joined by Three Lions team-mates Declan Rice, Ben Chilwell, Jack Grealish, Luke Shaw, Kalvin Phillips, Kyle Walker and Ben White.
But the 22-year-old decided to catch up on some fitness as he is set for another challenging campaign with the Blues.
Mount was filmed training on his own and running up a steep hill ahead of his reunion with Chelsea team-mates.
Timo Werner and Kai Havertz were the latest returns in Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Werner and Havertz competed for Germany in the Euros until they were knocked out of the Last 16 by England.
N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger are also back to club duties.
Their return comes after the rest of the Chelsea players flew home early from a training camp in Dublin because of a possible coronavirus case.
A friendly against Drogheda was cancelled on Thursday evening following the test result.
