Manchester United are confident about securing the signing of Mason Mount.
Meanwhile, he is a target for Liverpool, with Chelsea likely to demand £70 million to secure his services.
While the team struggled in the 2022/23 season, the 24-year-old did his bit with nine goal contributions in his 35 outings.
Injuries did cause a bit of trouble to Mount, but he still remains an integral part of their first team setup despite all the new signings that have arrived of late.
Mount’s contract at the club runs out in the summer of 2024.
Chelsea’s new boss Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of Mount and wants him to stay at the club.
However, it looks unlikely that the 24-year-old will sign a new deal in the coming weeks.
And, with just over a year left in his deal, the Blues will look to offload him as they will not risk losing out on him for free in the following summer window.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Manchester United are keen on having him in their ranks.
The Merseyside club are looking for a midfield overhaul in the summer and have their eyes on Mount.
The 24-year-old could help the cause of Jurgen Klopp, who is looking to revive his team with multiple signings in the centre of the park.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are confident they can beat Liverpool in their pursuit of the England international.
While the player is yet to decide about his future, Manchester United seem confident about securing his services.
