According to ESPN, the Old Trafford team seems to be alone, one horse in the race to sign Mason Mount.
Man Utd emerged as a bright candidate to sign Mason Mount. British media claim Mount is leaning towards moving to Old Trafford to play football . In contrast, bringing in a new midfielder is a priority for coach Erik Ten Hag.
British media confirmed that Mount has reached a personal agreement with the Old Trafford team. As long as MU offers the price Chelsea ask, they will get Mount’s signature.
Notably, Manchester City, Arsenal or Liverpool are said to also have a connection with Mount, but Man Utd has almost no rival in this deal.
ESPN revealed the reason is that Man City is focusing on completing the signature of Mateo Kovacic. Liverpool are set to announce new signing Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton. Meanwhile, Arsenal prioritized recruiting Declan Rice.
Therefore, Man Utd is convenient in approaching and negotiating with Rice. Not to mention, according to The Independent, Ten Hag has the clearest idea for Mount among the interested teams and Mount believes the Dutch coach’s tactical arrangement is right for him.
