Chelsea’s midfield starlet Mason Mount is leaning towards a move to Manchester United and talks between the two clubs are expected, as reported by The Athletic.
The 24-year-old’s future at the West London club remains uncertain with his contract due to expire next year, thus alerting many top clubs.
United, however, are prioritising a striker and there remains a lack of clarity regarding their ownership which could stall any forthcoming offer for Mount.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Bayern Munich have all been credited with interest for the England international and should the Blues not agree a new contract extension with Mount, it’s clear he will have no shortage of offers from multiple top clubs.
In a sub-standard Chelsea team, the 36-cap international has struggled to replicate the form shown in previous seasons after scoring just three goals in 35 appearances.
An enthralling transfer saga could await, with numerous clubs battling for the signature of Mount.
