In turn, David Ornstein and Fabrizio Romano both informed about the possibility of Man Utd recruiting Chelsea’s quality star this summer.
Chelsea are expected to sell a series of players in the summer to balance their huge spending. The west London club spent more than £250m in January, bringing in eight new faces. They make a bunch of crazy purchases .
In total, Chelsea’s spending activity under the new owners now exceeds the £500m mark and one of their big focuses over the summer will be on capital recovery to comply with Financial Fair Play.
Notably, Chelsea had difficulty extending the contract with Mason Mount . He is entering the final 12 months with the Stamford Bridge team. The Blues and Mount have stopped negotiating.
For now, they will soon decide whether they want to keep or sell him after this season. There, Man Utd seriously consider signing Mount.
Latest, journalist David Ornstein of The Athletic confirmed: ” Mount is aiming to move to Man Utd. Negotiations are expected to take place between the two clubs in the near future.
Other clubs interested in the 24-year-old are aware of Mount’s intentions (joining Man Utd).
Mount’s future at Chelsea is uncertain. The England international’s contract expires at the end of next season.”
Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano also confirmed: ” Chelsea want more than £80 million for Mount. An extension is unlikely despite the efforts of Mauricio Pochettino. Man United want the player.”
