Mason Mount’s Bid Rejected
Manchester United is intensifying their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount this summer. Talks between the two clubs have progressed, but Chelsea rejected an initial bid from United. The 22-year-old Mount, whose contract at Stamford Bridge is entering its final year, has garnered significant interest.
The Athletic reports that United offered £45 million plus £5 million in add-ons, which Chelsea countered with a demand of £60 million guaranteed and £5 million in add-ons. Negotiations are ongoing, as United aims to secure a deal below Chelsea’s valuation of £70 million.
Exciting transfer developments are underway at Chelsea. The anticipated arrival of Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal promises to bolster Chelsea’s attacking options. Meanwhile, the future of talented midfielder Mason Mount hangs in the balance as negotiations with Manchester United continue.
