Report: Club are now expected to sign £60m Chelsea star this summer, he’s now agreed to move

Manchester United are now expected to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea this summer after agreeing personal terms, according to reports.

The Telegraph claims that United have now agreed personal terms with Mason Mount over a switch to Old Trafford.

It is understood that Erik ten Hag’s side still need to agree a transfer fee with Chelsea for the 24-year-old, but they’re being tipped to get their man in this summer transfer window.

The report adds that the Blues attacking midfielder has settled personal terms, so it’s now on the clubs to get the deal over the line. Apparently, it would take a big set-back for the transfer to fall through now.

In addition, The Telegraph claims Liverpool will see it as a ‘serious blow’ if Mount joins United rather than them.

The Guardian reported last week that Chelsea will demand at least £60million to sell Mount this summer.

United are still trying to reach an agreement with the Blues over the transfer cost, but the fact the player’s now agreed to a transfer exit will sting for the supporters hoping he would stay at Stamford Bridge and sign a contract extension.

Mount’s current deal at Chelsea is due to expire at the end of next season, which has sparked transfer movement around him.

It’s going to look and feel bizarre possibly seeing him in the red of United in a few months time.

If Mount goes, we expect this will go down very poorly with sections of the fanbase.

He’s been the poster boy of Chelsea in recent years due to his influence on the pitch and his roots in the academy.

Unfortunately, the speculation in the media does point towards the creative playmaker quitting Chelsea and continuing his career in Manchester.
