Manchester United and Chelsea at Odds Over Mason Mount Transfer Valuation

by Deep dickens

Manchester United is encountering a financial hurdle in their pursuit of Chelsea’s Mason Mount, as the clubs have differing valuations for the 24-year-old midfielder. Mount’s contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire in the next 12 months, and discussions regarding a renewal have been unsuccessful thus far.

A source revealed that Mount was optimistic about reaching an agreement before the FIFA World Cup last year. However, following the World Cup, Chelsea underwent changes in their transfer team, resulting in the offer previously presented to Mount and his representatives no longer being available.

While Erik ten Hag’s team, Manchester United, has not officially made an offer for Mount, senior figures at the club have initiated discussions with Chelsea to express their interest in signing the English international. Both Reece James and Ben Chilwell from Chelsea have expressed their desire for Mount to remain at the club, with James stating it would be “sad” to see him leave.

During his time at the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, Mount addressed speculation about a potential move to Manchester United. When asked by Sky Sports F1 presenter Martin Brundle about the transfer, Mount laughed and replied that he was present to enjoy the race and had no immediate plans for a move.

Reports indicate that Chelsea is demanding a fee of at least £70 million for Mount, while Manchester United is currently willing to offer up to £50 million. As a result, transfer negotiations seem to have reached an impasse.

Liverpool and Arsenal, previously linked with Mount, have seemingly cooled their interest, leaving Manchester United as the frontrunners to secure his signature. However, it is likely that Chelsea will only consider selling Mount if their Premier League rivals meet their asking price, unless the player himself actively pushes for a move.
