For its part, Manchester United is forcing to attract Mason Mount (24 years old). According to information this Thursday from journalist Fabrizio Romano, transfer window specialist, negotiations are progressing well with Chelsea and a resolution is expected by the end of next week. The Red Devils are preparing to make a new offer and hope to be able to close this file quickly.
Pochettino appreciates it
Launched in a major degreasing operation, the Blues are waiting between 70 and 75 million euros to let go of their midfielder under contract until 2024. Held back by physical glitches and plugged into alternating current, Mount lost his starting place this season, even though he played 35 games in all competitions for a total of three goals and six assists.
According to The Guardian, Erik ten Hag has made it one of his priorities this summer. The Mancunian coach particularly appreciates the versatility of the former Derby player… just like Mauricio Pochettino. The new Chelsea manager, who is about to lose Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic, close to Arsenal and City respectively, could be tempted to block a departure from Mount.
