Manchester United make improved bid worth up to £50m for Mason Mount
Manchester United have reportedly increased their bid for Mason Mount, a priority midfield target for the Red Devils. However, the clubs are yet to reach an agreement on the valuation of the England international.
United’s improved offer of £45 million, plus £5 million in add-ons, has been countered by Chelsea, who are demanding a £60 million fee with an additional £5 million in add-ons.
Mount, who has been with Chelsea since joining their academy in 2015, has made 195 appearances for the club, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists. During his time at Stamford Bridge, he has won the Champions League and has been a key figure in the team. However, his future at the club is uncertain, with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2024.
However, the potential transfer has sparked concerns among United fans, who fear the club may end up overpaying for Mount due to Chelsea’s financial situation. With Chelsea reportedly selling several players to Saudi Arabian clubs, the pressure to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations has eased, potentially giving Chelsea more leverage in negotiations.
