According to The Telegraph, Manchester United has made a £50 million offer to capture the England player and believes the sum will be sufficient to clinch his signing.
According to the news source, the Blues want a higher fee for their prized asset, but they must balance the books by the end of this month, which could benefit the Red Devils.
Mount hit double figures in goals scored and assists contributed in the 2021-22 season, but he was off of form and injured last season.
With that in mind, and with his contract set to end next year, Manchester United believes £50 million should be enough to close the deal.
According to media reports (Mirror Sport), Chelsea is looking for a massive fee of £80 million to sell the dynamic playmaker.
The Blues are already on the verge of signing a new midfielder in the form of Manuel Ugarte from Sporting CP.
Erik ten Hag must fully strengthen the squad prior to the start of the preseason in order to adequately prepare the squad for the next season.
