Manchester United Eyeing Chelsea’s Mason Mount Amidst Liverpool’s Interest
Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag has expressed his desire to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea, despite Liverpool also being interested in the midfielder. With the summer transfer window looming, both English clubs want to secure the services of the 24-year-old international midfielder.
Liverpool’s interest in Mount was reported this month by 90min. However, Sky Sports now claims that Manchester United also wants to sign the player for £85,000-a-week. The Sun reports that Erik ten Hag has personally requested that the club signs the Chelsea midfielder for next season and beyond.
According to the report, Manchester United is willing to pay £60 million for Mount, who has previously expressed an interest in joining Old Trafford. United’s interest in the Chelsea midfielder could be a significant setback for Liverpool.
Manchester United’s Interest in Mount Puts Liverpool in a Tough Spot
Liverpool could face a challenging time convincing Mason Mount to join the club if Manchester United presses on with their interest. United’s position in the UEFA Champions League next season, alongside their potential challenge for the Premier League title, could be a significant factor in the player’s decision.
Mason Mount would undoubtedly be an excellent addition to Liverpool’s squad, but Manchester United’s zeal for the midfielder might complicate their pursuit of him. The upcoming transfer window will reveal which club will secure the signature of one of England’s leading midfielders.
