Manchester United to submit £55m+ bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are now set to submit an official bid worth over £55m for Chelsea’s Mason Mount.

It is believed that this will be the third and final proposal submitted by The Red Devils, after two bids for the England international have already been rejected by Chelsea in the previous weeks.

Furthermore, personal terms between the player and the club are said to be ‘100% agreed’ and United now want a quick resolution for the transfer.  

Erik ten Hag’s side were previously reported to be confident that the midfielder would not sign a new contract with the London side this summer, however did not have their valuation of the player as high as The Blues’ £70m asking price- instead valuing him somewhere closer to £50m due to his contract expiring next year, as the latest proposal suggests. 

If Chelsea owners Clearlake Capital and Todd boehly were to accept the newest bid, it would see the English international move for just under his current market value of €65m, according to Transfermarkt

Both Mauricio Pochettino and Ten Hag are keen to have the 24-year-old in their respective sides, however, having already rejected at least two contract offers from his boyhood club, he is believed to have opted for a move to join the Dutchman in Manchester.

The decision is believed to not be purely financially motivated, with Mount having the opportunity to play Champions League football at Old Trafford next season, but not at Stamford Bridge.
