Mason Mount to Manchester United: Done deal
After both clubs agreed on the transfer fee, the medical examination is the next crucial step. The agreement is reportedly valued at £55 million, with an additional £5 million in potential add-ons. Mount, whose contract with Chelsea is expiring in 12 months, is expected to finalize his move to Manchester United this week.
Initially, there were some uncertainties as Chelsea had rejected United’s initial £55 million offer. However, following negotiations, a compromise has been reached between the two Premier League clubs. The 24-year-old English midfielder is now poised to sign a five-year contract with United.
According to Romano, Mount is scheduled for his medical examination on Monday, coinciding with the start of United’s pre-season preparations.
Mount, who has contributed significantly to Chelsea’s success with 33 goals and 37 assists in 195 appearances across all competitions, faced challenges last season due to injuries. He managed only three goals and six assists in 35 appearances, with pelvic surgery sidelining him towards the end of the 2022-23 season.
Assuming the transfer is finalized this week, there is a possibility that Mount could make his debut for Manchester United in their pre-season match against Leeds United on July 12.
United’s pre-season schedule is packed with matches against Lyon, Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Lens, and Athletic Bilbao.
The official debut of Mount in a Manchester United jersey may take place on August 14 when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers, as United aims to start their Premier League campaign on a positive note. Fans are eagerly awaiting the sight of Mount wearing the iconic Red jersey.
Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s team is actively pursuing further signings this summer, particularly focusing on securing a new center-forward and at least one goalkeeper. However, the exact transfer budget remains uncertain due to the ongoing takeover situation at the club.
