Manchester United’s £40m Bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount Rejected
In a surprising move, Manchester United has had their bid of £40 million turned down by Chelsea for the acquisition of English midfielder Mason Mount. The news comes as a shock to many football fans who were anticipating the transfer to go through smoothly.
A Potential Addition to Man Utd’s Attacking Options
The Red Devils have been on the lookout for players that can bolster their offensive lineup and Erik ten Hag, Manchester United manager, identified Mason Mount as someone who could be an asset to his team. However, with only one year left in his contract with Chelsea, Man Utd does not feel that the Blues’ valuation of £70 million is realistic.
An Uncertain Future For Harry Kane at Old Trafford?
It is unlikely that Manchester United will sign England striker Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur this summer due to financial constraints. With Spurs reportedly setting a price tag of £100m on him and given the club’s overall transfer budget this season, it seems highly improbable that they will pursue such an expensive deal.
Mason Mount – A Rising Star at Stamford Bridge
Mason Mount joined Chelsea’s academy when he was just six years old and after loan spells with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem and Derby County made his debut in August 2019. He became a regular first-team player over three seasons helping lead them win Champions League glory in 2020-21 but dropped down slightly last season making 20 Premier League starts out of 38.
England International with a Promising Future
The attacking midfielder made his senior England debut in September 2019 and played an instrumental role in helping the team reach the final of Euro 2020. With five goals from 36 caps, Mason Mount is considered to be one of England’s most promising young talents.
This unexpected move by Chelsea has left fans wondering what will happen next for Mason Mount and whether or not Manchester United will make another offer in an attempt to acquire him. It remains to be seen how this transfer saga will unfold but one thing is for sure – it’s going to be an interesting few weeks before the end of the summer transfer window.
