Mason Mount, the talented English midfielder, has sent shockwaves through the football world with his sensational move to Manchester United. The transfer has taken fans and pundits alike by surprise, as Mount had been an integral part of Chelsea’s success in recent seasons.
United and Chelsea seem to have finally come to an agreement regarding Mount. United’s initial bid of £55m ($69m) was rejected earlier this week but have now agreed to pay full extra £5m in the event Mount wins the Premier League title or Champions League multiple times.
However, the allure of donning the famous red shirt of Manchester United proved too tempting for the 24-year-old. Known for his exceptional technical skills, vision, and work rate.
Mount’s arrival would be a major coup for United, who are looking to rebuild their midfield following a disappointing season. The midfielder is known for his work ethic, creativity, and goalscoring ability, and he would add a much-needed spark to United’s attack.
Here are some of his notable performances for Chelsea:
- In the 2019-20 season, he scored a goal and provided an assist in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup.
- In the 2020-21 season, he scored a goal in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Manchester City in the Champions League final.
- In the 2021-22 season, he scored a goal in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
The move not only demonstrates the Red Devils’ ambition to compete for top honors but also highlights Mount’s desire to take his career to new heights. With his versatility and ability to score crucial goals, he is poised to become a fan favorite at Old Trafford and write a new chapter in his already impressive football journey.
