Mason Mount Man Utd Saga Finally Ends, Chelsea Accept £60m Bid

Mason Mount has been a target for United since the beginning of the transfer window, and Man Utd finally seem to have gotten their man. The Chelsea star’s hope for a fresh start somewhere could finally be happening.

Man Utd know they have to strengthen this current team if they are to challenge City and other teams in the Premier League next season. Although much of this has been blamed on delays in the seemingly unending takeover process, fans are becoming increasingly frustrated with those at the club’s helm.

With other Premier League teams making early moves to strengthen their squads, United hasn’t announced any signings so far in this transfer window. Instead, the club has had to release fringe players like Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe, and many more.

Mason Mount’s Achievements with Chelsea

Mason Mount has joined the growing list of departures from Chelsea this summer, which also includes N’golo Kante, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mateo Kovacic, and Cesar Azpilicueta. After seeing three bids rejected for Mason Mount, United have reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea of £60m for their star man.

Fabrizio Romano claimed yesterday that Mount would undergo his medical tests today before signing a five-year contract with an option to extend it by a year. This would make 24-year-old United’s first signing of the season, but how much did he win at Chelsea?

Mason Mount declares Chelsea 'the best team in the world'

Mason Mount has been at Chelsea since 2005 when he was just six. As a youth team player, he won the UEFA Youth League for the Blues in 2016 before winning the English Youth League the next season. After a successful loan spell at Derby County under Frank Lampard, Mason Mount was promoted to the first team and has been present ever since.

In addition to a UEFA Youth League trophy, Mason Mount led Chelsea to Champions League glory in 2021. He also played a huge part in the club’s run to the renowned FIFA Club World Cup final, which Chelsea won.

On a personal level, Mount was voted Chelsea Player of the Year two seasons in a row (20/21 and 21/22). This proves how good he has been for the club since breaking into the first team in 2019.

How Will Mason Mount Fit Into Erik Ten Hag’s System?

Erik Ten Hag is a manager that seems to know exactly what he wants. He was convinced Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez would slow into that United team, and he’s been proved right. With Eriksen in decline and unable to play the full 90 minutes consistently, Ten Hag’s obsession with Mason Mount is quite understandable.

The English man is a versatile midfielder and can also play on the flank in a front three. The United coach greatly seems to value Mount’s versatility and energy and sees him as a vital part of how he wants to set the team up for next season. Whether as a box-to-box or a playmaker, Mason Mount could shine for United and Erik Ten Hag.
