Chelsea reject £40m Manchester United offer for Mason Mount?

Mason Mount to Manchester United

Chelsea reportedly rejected a £40 million proposal from Manchester United for Mason Mount.

The England international’s Chelsea contract expires in 12 months, and talks over a new agreement have been fruitless.

Mount is largely anticipated to depart Stamford Bridge this summer, with Manchester United emerging as a possible destination.

The Red Devils are set to strengthen their midfield options this summer, with Fred, Donny van de Beek, and Scott McTominay all linked with moves.

Although Manchester United supposedly agreed on personal terms with Mount, they have yet to secure a transfer agreement with Chelsea.

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United made their first official proposal for Mount on Wednesday, but it fell short of Chelsea’s asking price.

The Blues rejected Manchester United’s opening approach of £40 million, which is much less than Chelsea’s rumoured asking price of £70 million.

According to the source, it is presently unknown whether Manchester United would make a second bid or remain patient in their pursuit of the England midfielder.

While Chelsea are still interested in resuming contract talks with their youth product, Manchester United are sure that he will decline to sign a new contract with the Blues.

As a result, Chelsea would have to choose whether to lower their asking price or risk losing Mount on a free transfer at the conclusion of the season.

According to a recent rumour, Manchester United are reluctant to pay more than £60 million, with the Red Devils unwilling to invest the majority of their cash on a single player.

Mount, who was injured for the final seven games of the season, scored three goals and had six assists in 35 games for the 2022-23 season.

In 195 competitive games for Chelsea, the 24-year-old has scored 33 goals and provided 37 assists.
