Mason Mount reveals the real reason behind Chelsea exit!

Mason Mount is now a Red Devil. Manchester United have completed the signing of their priority midfielder as he swaps Cobham’s Blue for Carrington’s Red. Despite being at the club for 18 years, Mount has now moved to Manchester to re-vamp his career under Erik Ten Hag.

Mount has told MUTV of leaving his comfort zone: “Several months ago, it became clear that I wasn’t in Chelsea’s plans moving forward. Once I knew that United were involved, my decision was made up. A massive club, huge iconic players have played here, and I wanted to be a part of that from the beginning. Getting in early and ready for pre-season to start was a main objective of mine as well.”

Mount has been handed the iconic No.7 shirt at United and believes he can make an important contribution in the Red Devils’ engine room. He added on his role in Erik ten Hag’s plans: “I’ve always seen myself as a midfielder or a number eight that can obviously get forward, attack, try and score goals, create goals, but also be able to do the other side as well and defend and help the team when we’re under pressure. That’s obviously a massive focus of mine, being able to come here and help the boys in that situation and I know what I can bring to this team and now it’s about going and doing it on the pitch.”

Mount will look to team up with Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro in midfield as he hopes to enjoy Champions League football this season.
