However, Chelsea is believed to be holding out for a fee closer to £65 million. Despite United’s interest, they have set a limit on how much they are willing to spend, and it’s unlikely they will go beyond that limit due to Financial Fair Play rules and their need to strengthen other areas of the team.

Manchester United is considering other options in midfield as well, as they are aware that investing a significant portion of their budget in a single player may not be feasible. The club’s spending power could be increased if they are able to offload some players through potential sales.

This Manchester United transfer news of Mason Mount stems from a previous encounter between the player and United’s current manager, Erik ten Hag, during his time as the head coach of Ajax. When Mount was on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, his free-kick contributed to a victory over Ajax. Ten Hag reportedly attempted to sign Mount on loan for Ajax the following season. Mount’s impressive performances, including 14 goals and 10 assists in his first full senior campaign, caught Ten Hag’s attention.

It appears that Mount is unlikely to stay at Stamford Bridge, as he is unwilling to sign a new contract with Chelsea. With just one year remaining on his current deal, Chelsea recognizes this as an opportune time to cash in on the player. As a result, there is growing speculation that Mason Mount could join Manchester United in the near future.

Sky Sports News reporter Mark McAdam on the Transfer Show:

“Manchester United are expected to go in with a third bid for Mason Mount because they are keen on the player. But they are also monitoring other midfielders, so it doesn’t mean Mount is the only midfielder United are interested in.

“Chelsea want around £65m for a player who has come through their academy and the set-up there. He looked at one stage to be the future at Stamford Bridge, so you can understand why United want him.

“At the minute though, it’s a case of Chelsea holding off until they get the amount they want. But you would expect Mount to be a Manchester United player by the end of the window.”
