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

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign midfielder Mason Mount.

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.

It seemed that negotiations has stalled this month after United had three separate bids rejected. Indeed, manager Erik ten Hag was reported to be turning his attention to other targets having grown frustrated with Chelsea’s insistence they would only accept £58 million – plus a further £7 million in add ons.

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.
