Mason Mount is scheduled to have medical exams with Manchester United today. He will then likely sign a contract with the team.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Mount is anticipated to sign a contract with an expiration date of June 2028 and an extension clause for one more season.
Man United agreed to pay Chelsea an initial sum of £55 million plus an additional $5 million in add-ons, according to The Peoples Person.
Romano explained in his Tweet that these add-ons won’t be turned on until Mount wins a championship with Man United while he plays at Old Trafford.
When off the ball, he is renowned for his powerful pressing skills, high level of vigor, and physical presence. The player profile of Mount makes him a good fit for the Erik ten Hag method.
Last season, Mount delivered the fourth-highest overall average of 25.5 possession-adjusted pressures per 90 minutes in the Premier League.
Mount maintained a reasonable presence in Chelsea’s offensive style during his 24 Premier League games, achieving an 80% passing accuracy despite Chelsea’s poor season.
However, Mount outperformed his teammates and emerged as Chelsea’s primary playmaker during the 2021–2022 Premier League season.
Mount led the team in goals (11) and assists (10) that year.
With 1.3 tackles and 0.4 interceptions per game while pressuring opponents, Mount also demonstrated his physicality.
The Red Devils are likely to give the England international a salary of £300,000 a week, including bonuses, so his services won’t be cheap.
Mount will give the Red Devils some much-needed technical talent and depth in the midfield in what is expected to be a busy calendar this coming season, even though United’s transfer plans for the summer are far from over.
