Man United clinch a £60m deal with Chelsea for Mason Mount. The England international will join United on a contract until 2028
Manchester United sealed the deal for Chelsea's Mason Mount for £55m plus £5m in difficult add-ons, following a previously rejected £55m bid.
Mason Mount is set to undergo a medical, finalise personal terms, and ink a contract until 2028, with the option to extend for a further year.
🚨 EXCLUSIVE: Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign Mason Mount. Deal for 24yo England midfielder worth up to £60m (£55m + £5m adds). Permission given to do medical + finalise personal terms. Now to paperwork stage @TheAthleticFC https://t.co/4Y4YoGfJmT— David Ornstein (@David_Ornstein) June 29, 2023
Previously, United threatened to cap their offer at £50m plus £5m and explore other options when faced with Chelsea's counter-offer of £58m plus £7m in add-ons.
However, the recent discussions seem to have reached a favourable conclusion for all parties involved.
With one year remaining in his Stamford Bridge contract, the 24-year-old England international and Chelsea academy product seemed ready for change after contract negotiations slowed.
Mason Mount has an impressive record, with 195 appearances and 33 goals since his first-team debut in 2017.
Mount spent two seasons (2017–2019) on loan at Vitesse Arnhem and Derby County before becoming a regular under Frank Lampard at Chelsea.
His performance in the 2022–23 season was hampered by a pelvic injury, causing him to miss the final-day draw against Newcastle United.

I don’t care what anyone says, this is a very sad day.— Olivia Buzaglo (@OliviaBuzaglo) June 29, 2023
Mason Mount has been at Chelsea since he was 6 & should’ve been at this club for a very long time. Knowing him, he’ll be devastated it has ended like this. Personally, I really hope he goes on to smash it at United. #CFC
Ruben Loftus-Cheek who has been here since 8 has achieved more than Mason Mount, yesterday was more of a sad day than today let’s be serious, we’re all sleeping good tonight— Mod (@CFCMod_) June 29, 2023
£125m for Kai Havertz and Mason Mount. Take a bow Chelsea.— Tactics Journal (@TacticsJournal) June 29, 2023
I’ve been critical of Mount previously, especially out of possession, but you have to trust ten Hag. Mount’s a younger more mobile version of Eriksen (in some ways). Thought the Dane looked out of sorts after he returned from injury. Still think #MUFC need more physicality too.— Tom McDermott (@MrTomMcDermott) June 29, 2023
Still can’t believe Mason Mount really cost us two trophies in one season.— Janty (@CFC_Janty) June 29, 2023

• Excellent out of possession, being one of the best in the league in counterpressing
• Offers a distinctive goal threat from in & around the eighteen yard box helping us spread our goals across the pitch
• Exemplary ball carrier from… pic.twitter.com/hwHA8JJs4w
