According to today’s edition of The Mirror (news image supplied below), the Old Trafford club’s second bid of £50 million was rejected by the Blues, who have been demanding a whopping £70 million for their prized asset.
According to the well-known British media outlet, the two teams are reportedly close to completing an agreement worth £60 million for the transfer.
According to reports, Manchester United has agreed to pay Mount £200,000 every week for the next five years, totaling £52 million.
With Chelsea, he has won the UEFA Champions League, European Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
Last season, however, he spent a lot of time on the treatment table and made his last Premier League start in mid-February.
Furthermore, his contract is set to end in 2024. In all fairness, a contract of £60 million should be seen as extremely exorbitant.
Mount’s versatility, which allows him to play in numerous midfield and offensive positions, can benefit Erik Ten Hag.
The England international, who has 36 caps to date, only scored three goals and provided six assists for the Blues during their injury-plagued season last year.
