Premier League side Manchester United are reportedly interested in securing the services of Chelsea superstar Mason Mount this summer.
According to a report from The Guardian, Manchester United are currently monitoring the situation of Mason Mount at Chelsea and have identified him as a potential summer target. The Reds are experiencing a revival from last season’s woes under new manager Erik Ten Hag and the Dutchman is keen to strengthen the midfield department alongside the necessary forward spot.
Manchester United have already recognised Harry Kane as a primary target for the summer transfer and will analyse how the situation regarding him progresses. Mason Mount is the second Englishman to join The Red Devils’ target list as they aim to keep their momentum on in all competitions and return back to their glory days.
The 24-year-old has lost his starting place in the team recently under new manager Graham Potter who is leading Chelsea through an underwhelming season. With just three goals and two assists from 23 appearances in the Premier League, Mason Mount’s form is not helping his situation to convince the former Brighton manager into including him as a starter. Mount has Chelsea through and through as alongside teammate Reece James, he remains the other player who graduated and worked his way to the first team from Cobham’s youth ranks.
Since the departure of Roman Abramovich as the owner of the club, The Blues have seen the arrival of a Todd Boehly-led consortium to the helm. They have spent nearly 500 million pounds and are due to face Financial Fairplay terms at the start of next season. There has been a standoff with Mason Mount regarding his contract renewal and this has further fueled the rumours related to his potential departure from his childhood club in the upcoming transfer window.
It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will register a firm interest in him as the season draws to a close. Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane also remain on the list and each and every option will be carefully taken into account before making a final decision.
