Manchester United reach £60m agreement with Chelsea for Mason Mount

As reported by David Ornstein of The Athletic, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea over the signing of Mason Mount.

The agreed fee is reportedly worth up to £60m, with £55m being paid initially and a potential £5m in add-ons which are difficult to reach.

The England international has now been given permission to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms with The Red Devils, whilst the two clubs are set to finish off the official paperwork.

The agreement comes following several weeks of negotiations, with The Blues previously having rejected three bids from their Premier League rivals, the latest of which was worth £55m.

With his contract set to expire at the London club in June 2024, Erik ten Hag’s side have been confident for a while that the 24-year-old would not renew his contract at the boyhood side and would instead move elsewhere. This confidence was seemingly valid, as Mount is now set to sign a five-year contract at United until 2028, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The attacking midfielder will become the first signing of the summer, as they look to bolster their squad ahead of their return to Champions League football next season.
