Chelsea star Mason Mount has agreed personal terms with Manchester United
And according to The Telegraph, the playmaker is now expected to join United ahead of the summer transfer window.
The same report claims talks between the England international and the Red Devils have progressed positively since last Thursday when Erik ten Hag’s men beat the Blues 4-1 at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old is determined to leave Chelsea and the club won’t stand in his way.
In fact, the West Londoners will try and attract a fee as high as possible in order to avoid losing him for free in 2024.
Mount has also attracted interest from Arsenal as well as Liverpool but it appears United are winning the bidding war.
The versatile midfielder as well as forward’s departure signals the start of a major overhaul under Chelsea’s new manager Mauricio Pochettino.
This comes after Manchester City held positive transfer talks with Mateo Kovacic’s representatives.
Todd Boehly is open to selling Kovacic after he also entered the final year of his contract.
And “concrete talks” have now begun between the two Premier League giants over a summer deal.
Pochettino has also offloaded Joao Felix and Denis Zakaria who returned to Atletico Madrid and Juventus respectively after their loan stints ended.
Chelsea academy graduate Dujon Sterling, on the other hand, has joined Rangers.
And Ruben Loftus-Cheek appears to have agreed a move to AC Milan.
