Manchester United reach £60m agreement with Chelsea over Mason Mount

Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign Mason Mount in a deal worth £60 million.

The news broke this evening, courtesy of David Ornstein from The Athletic, just days after Manchester United had a bid worth £55m plus £5m in add-ons.

Mount, 24, will have to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms before completing his switch from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford.

However, it was reported some time ago that personal terms wouldn’t be an issue as Mount has been waiting for his transfer to United.

Mount will sign a contract under 2028 at United, with the option of a further year.

Chelsea should be happy to get £60m for a player with just one year left on his current deal, but there will be match goers disappointed to lose such a talented player who came from their academy.

The England international has made 195 appearances for the club since his first team debut in 2017. He spent two seasons out on loan before breaking into the first team — at Vitesse Arnhem and Derby Count.

Furthermore, it is believed Erik ten Hag has been a fan of mount since his time on loan at Vitesse.

I’m exciting to be getting Mount because we know this is a signing Ten Hag has pushed for.
