Fabrizio Romano names the obstacle in the way of Man United’s move for Mason Mount

Posted by

Man United are making moves to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea but there is an obstacle in their pursuit of the midfielder.

Erik ten Hag is looking to add a midfielder to his squad this summer and has identified the Chelsea star as the player he wants to fill the role, however, the deal is progressing slowly due to an obstacle in the way.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the main issue in United’s pursuit of Mount is the price tag the Blues have put on the England star. However, Man United believe they can get this sorted and remain calm about the situation knowing the 24-year-old wants to move up North.

Chelsea are believed to want £70m for the sale of Mount, which is a lot, as the midfielder only has a year left on his current contract. Mount also struggled this season, which should have affected his value, but the Blues are still seeking a premium price for one of their homegrown talents.

The England star could be a great piece of business for Man United but £70m is a lot of money. This move also contains a lot of risks and with them present, Man United are right to want to pay less for the 24-year-old.

  1. Chelsea don’t need to sell mount if United don’t sign him this season next year Chelsea will be playing in champions league so mount will sign for Chelsea that is the reality

  2. Chelsea are rating him so expensive! It’s like Manchester United demanding 70m for Mason Greenwood. Mount hasn’t played this season. At best he is worth 35-40m. DON’T BUY UNITED! Get Youri Tielemans on a FREE and buy Romeo Lavia from Southampton for 30 and you get 2 good young players.

  3. for me it’s agreat move but £70m is too much for mount regarding last season’s performance atleast £50m that’s according to me it’s good addition to United

  4. I really don’t care if either Mount or Kane join United but if neither of them get the moves they want I really hope they just see out the final year of their contracts and leave both Tottenham and Chelsea for nothing in a years time.
