Manchester United has officially made their last attempt to secure the services of 24-year-old Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.
According to renowned journalist Rudy Galetti, Manchester United has expressed a strong interest in adding Mason Mount to their roster. However, they are unwilling to meet Chelsea’s asking price.
The Red Devils’ most recent offer for the talented English international stands at £55 million, and they have declared it as their final bid.
Mount’s future at Chelsea has been uncertain for some time now, attracting attention from several other clubs interested in acquiring his talents.
Having progressed through the ranks at Chelsea, the 24-year-old has cemented his place as an essential member of the first team. He has achieved numerous accolades with the Blues, but it appears that his time at the club is coming to an end.
Despite Chelsea’s attempt to extend his contract, they were unable to meet Mount’s demands, leading to the current situation.
Manchester United is one of the clubs actively pursuing his signature. They have made multiple offers for the midfielder, yet all of their proposals have been turned down by Chelsea.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, holds a great admiration for the English international and is eager to bring him to the club for the upcoming season.
While United is focused on strengthening their squad, they have limited financial resources to work with. Consequently, they have made the decision that their previous offer of £55 million, which was rejected by Chelsea, will be their final bid for the 24-year-old.
Both clubs are scheduled to meet once more for a conclusive discussion regarding Mount’s future. During this meeting, Manchester United intends to emphasize that they will not increase their bid for the talented midfielder.
The ultimate outcome of United’s pursuit of Mount is expected to be revealed in the near future.
