Manchester United’s prolonged pursuit for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount appears to be over after the two Premier League clubs reached an agreement over the deal
The 24-year-old England midfielder will head to Old Trafford on a five year deal for a fee of £55 million, with the potential to rise to £60 million in add ons. The Blues have given Mount permission to undergo a medical at Old Trafford and finalise personal terms.
But the two Premier League clubs have finally settled on a compromise. It means the Red Devils are set to secure their first signing of the summer, in what has been billed as a huge transfer window for the club.
And with Mauricio Pochettino in the midst of his own overhaul at Stamford Bridge, a deal ultimately suited both parties after Mount revealed he did not intend to extend his current contract. That deal runs out in 2024, meaning the Blues would have risked losing him for free in 12 months’ time.
