Chelsea’s Mason Mount, 24, could be headed to Manchester United.
“Manchester United are keen to sign Mount in this summer’s transfer window,” the Express reported on July 27.
“Speculation is mounting that Mount will move to United. Liverpool and Arsenal are also interested, but a move to United is the most likely outcome.” “United believe that Mount is the perfect player to fit into the system of manager Eric ten Haag. He is willing to leave Chelsea,” he added.
“United are unwilling to pay Chelsea’s £55 million transfer fee. However, there is still hope that a deal will be done.”
Mount is a versatile player who can play in several positions, including central midfield, winger, and attacking midfield. His excellent kicking allows him to create chances for his teammates at any time. He has a good work rate. He can also play in defense.
He joined the Chelsea youth team in 2005 and has been with the Blues ever since, except for a loan spell. In total, Mount has three goals and six assists in 35 games this season. He has started 20 out of 24 games in the English Premier League 먹튀검증.
However, he fell out of favor under former manager Graham Potter. More recently, he has been sidelined by injury. According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, Mount’s contract with Chelsea expires in 2024 and the two clubs have not been able to resolve their differences. That’s why a move has become increasingly likely.
United are expected to bring in two more Chelsea players along with Mount. They are Mateo Kovacic, 29, and Hakim Ziyech, 30.
The outlet says: “Kovacic has just 18 months left on his contract. Chelsea have not offered Kovacic a new contract to tie him down, and his arrival would provide more energy to a midfield that includes Casemiro and Christian Eriksen.”
“Ziyech has long wanted to leave Chelsea and is unhappy that a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain fell through in January,” he added, “There is no concrete evidence that Ziyech wants to join United, but a move cannot be ruled out. Van Gaal asked for Ziyech’s signature last summer.”
