Man utd agree deal to sign chelsea's mount: reports0

According to rumors from Thursday, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea to purchase Mason Mount, an England international midfielder, for an initial sum of £55 million (or $69 million).

According to the rumors, United would pay Mount an extra five million pounds, with the amount being contingent on how well he performs at Old Trafford.

It is believed that the 24-year-old player, whose current deal with Chelsea is set to expire in the following year, has agreed to a five-year contract with an option for an additional year.

The conclusion of a deal for Mount would provide United manager Erik ten Hag with additional alternatives in the central midfield position.

Mount was a product of the Chelsea youth system and went on to make 129 appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League, during which time he scored 27 goals and provided 22 assists.

The 24-year-old has already earned 36 caps for England and started for them in the loss to Italy in the final of Euro 2020. He won the Champions League in 2021 with Chelsea.

As a result of a decline in his play and ongoing issues with injuries, the offensive midfielder scored just three goals in the Premier League during the previous season.

After going on a massive buying binge over the course of the previous year, Chelsea, now led by new manager Mauricio Pochettino, is working to trim down their bloated roster.

The team in west London has parted ways with goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, defender Kalidou Koulibaly, and midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who has joined the Premier League champions Manchester City. Mendy and Koulibaly have both moved to the Saudi Pro League.

In Ten Hag’s first season at United, the team won the League Cup and finished third in the Premier League, although they had a difficult time scoring goals.

There have been rumors that Ten Hag’s club is interested in signing a number of the world’s best attackers, such as Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos, and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.
