Manchester United Look Set to Sign Mason Mount
Mount Looks Set to Depart Stamford Bridge
During Kinsella’s appearance on the latest episode of The London is Blue Podcast, he was asked about the reported transfer of Mount to Manchester United. His response will disappoint many Chelsea fans. “It is going to happen.” He went on to talk about the saga of Mount leaving and how it feels to those connected with the club. “It feels like goodbye,” said Kinsella. Mount’s lap around Stamford Bridge after the Newcastle game saw the England midfielder looking emotional, seemingly waving goodbye to the Chelsea fans. Kinsella explains, “It feels like he’s replaceable,” referring to how he perceives the player’s value at Stamford Bridge.
He goes on to explain personal terms will not be a problem between the player and Erik Ten Hag’s men, but he does explain the fee could be the only complication in this deal. Chelsea reportedly value Mount at £80 million, while Manchester United are seemingly only willing to pay £50 million for the England international. Mount’s reaction after the Newcastle game and the lack of fresh contract talks between himself and Chelsea officials, seems to indicate his future is destined to be away from Stamford Bridge.
Mount Could Improve Manchester United Midfield
Manchester United struggled at crucial times throughout the season due to a lack of numbers in midfield. The lack of strength in depth occurred when Ten Hag’s men had to contend without any of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and Bruno Fernandes.
Despite having a disappointing 2022/23 campaign, Mount still has a lot to offer. He breaks lines brilliantly with his incisive passing. The England international is also adept at picking up pockets of space to link up with his teammates. His work rate is phenomenal, and he would undoubtedly bring energy and endeavour to a Manchester United midfield that would seemingly improve with his arrival.
