Manchester United have agreed personal terms with their top midfield transfer target. The latest development means that Man United will now need to thrash out of a transfer price with Chelsea for Mason Mount.
The fact that United have agreed to personal terms with Mount is a massive step toward concluding the deal, with TalkSport reporting that the two Premier League teams will look to agree on a figure when the transfer window opens.
Mason Mount nearing Man United transfer
Erik ten Hag has made Mount one of his key targets this summer, and has pushed the Red Devils to get the deal done as quickly as possible. United appears to have fought off competition from Arsenal and Liverpool to secure the signature of the England midfielder.
However, the Red Devils will be hoping that Chelsea will agree to compromise on their transfer fee. Reports claim that the Blues are looking to a figure in the region of $80 million, but United are hopeful of agreeing a much lower price.
It has been a testing campaign for Mount, as he has registered just three goals across 33 matches in all competitions. However, United will be hopeful of resurrecting the star from the 2021-22 season, as the 24-year-old scored eleven and registered ten assists in 32 Premier League outings.
