Breakthrough: Man Utd chiefs agree terms with “mad player”; expected to make Old Trafford move

According to reports, it is said that Manchester United and Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount have reached an agreement on personal terms, indicating a likely transfer to Old Trafford.

Latest on Man United and Mount

Despite the approaching FA Cup final for Erik ten Hag’s team, Manchester United, often referred to as the Red Devils, seem to be initiating their summer transfer activities. The ongoing takeover situation does not seem to be affecting the club’s intentions of making potential signings, and Mason Mount appears to be a prominent target for them in the upcoming months.

There are indications that United is actively pursuing Mount, with Ten Hag expressing personal interest in acquiring the player. Reports suggest that a deal is progressing and has taken another positive stride forward.

As reported by The Telegraph, there has been a significant development regarding Manchester United and Mason Mount, as they have reached a consensus on personal terms. It is now anticipated that the English national will transfer to Manchester.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, under the management of Mauricio Pochettino, seem to be preparing for a revamp of their squad. There are indications that Mateo Kovacic is moving closer to joining Manchester City.

Mason Mount, who is currently 24 years old, primarily plays as an attacking midfielder but can also be deployed in deeper positions or on the left flank. He is valued at €65 million according to Transfermarkt and will soon enter the final year of his contract with Chelsea. It is uncertain whether he will reach 200 appearances for the club.

Having progressed through Chelsea’s academy, Mount has earned praise from former player Rio Ferdinand, who described him as a “mad player.” He has made 195 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists. Additionally, Mount has gained valuable experience during loan spells with Derby County in the Championship and Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands.

If he moves to Manchester United as expected, Mount is likely to compete with Bruno Fernandes, the only senior attacking midfielder currently available to Ten Hag. Fernandes has been heavily involved in all competitions this season, and with United’s return to the Champions League next season, squad depth will be crucial. Mount, who has won the Champions League with Chelsea, brings valuable experience at the highest level and could be a valuable addition. However, the two clubs will need to agree on a transfer fee.

While the transfer is an intriguing prospect, Ten Hag’s immediate focus will be on winning a second domestic cup trophy at Wembley, which would be a fitting end to a successful first season in charge.
