The speculation surrounding the future of Chelsea's rising star, Mason Mount, continues to grow. Talks between the player and the club regarding a new contract have hit a roadblock, leaving his future uncertain.

The talented English international has only 12 months remaining on his current contract with Chelsea. Mount is now expected to part ways with Stamford Bridge this summer, and Manchester United has emerged as a potential destination for him.

Manchester United, also known as the Red Devils, is eager to strengthen their midfield options. With Fred, Donny van de Beek, and Scott McTominay all being linked with possible summer departures, they are keen to add depth to their midfield.

Rumors suggest that Manchester United has already agreed on personal terms with Mason Mount. However, the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement regarding the transfer fee.

According to reports from The Telegraph, Manchester United made their first official offer for Mount last Wednesday. Unfortunately, their initial bid fell significantly short of Chelsea's valuation.

The Offer from Manchester United Differs from Chelsea's Demands

The Blues swiftly rejected Manchester United's opening bid of £40 million, which is considerably lower than Chelsea's asking price of £70 million.

Furthermore, it remains unclear at this point whether Manchester United will come back with an improved offer or exercise patience in their pursuit of the talented English midfielder.

Chelsea Could Lose Mount on a Free Transfer

While Chelsea is still keen on continuing contract negotiations with their academy graduate, Manchester United seems confident that Mount will ultimately decide against signing a new contract with The Blues.

Consequently, Chelsea finds itself at a crossroads, where they must choose between lowering their asking price or running the risk of losing Mount on a free transfer at the end of the upcoming season.

Manchester United Reluctant to Exceed £60 Million

A recent report has claimed that Manchester United is unwilling to pay more than £60 million for Mason Mount. Moreover, the Red Devils are hesitant to allocate a significant portion of their budget to a single player.

Throughout the 2022-23 season, Mount showcased his prowess on the field, scoring three goals and providing six assists in 35 appearances despite missing the final seven matches due to injury.

In total, the 24-year-old midfielder has made 195 competitive appearances for Chelsea, scoring 33 goals and contributing 37 assists.
