Manchester United have completed their first signing of the summer transfer window. Chelsea’s Mason Mount has donned a United shirt. The deal is for five years, with United having an option for a one-year extension.
The club announced the signing of Mount on its official website on Friday (local time). He will play for United until the summer of 2028. His salary and transfer fee were not disclosed, but local media reported a transfer fee of £60 million 안전놀이터.
A product of Chelsea’s youth ranks, Mount made his Premier League debut in 2019 and has scored 33 goals in 195 appearances for the Blues so far. He developed into a key player for the team, being named Chelsea’s Player of the Year in the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 seasons. However, he struggled last season and eventually decided to leave Chelsea.
“It’s not easy to leave the club I grew up at,” said Mount. “It’s not easy to leave the club where I grew up, but I think United will give me a new challenge to grow to the next level,” he said. “I know how strong United is. I know how strong the club is and I’m looking forward to joining them in their quest to win even more trophies.”
Mount was a key figure in Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League triumph in the 2020/2021 season. “I have huge ambitions. I know how great it is to win big trophies. I will do everything I can to bring that experience to Manchester United.”
Mount’s arrival adds to a formidable midfield that already includes Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, and Christian Eriksen.
