Chelsea reject £40m Mason Mount bid from Man Utd


Chelsea have turned down a £40m bid from Manchester United for midfielder Mason Mount, sources have confirmed.

Mason Mount has only one year left on his contract, but Chelsea values him at about £70 million, rejecting Manchester United’s opening offer of £40 million. Liverpool and Arsenal have also expressed interest in Mount.

As his term at Stamford Bridge approaches its final year, Mount has so far declined to extend it. Chelsea is open to selling Mount this summer if their asking price of roughly £70 million is met.

Given that Mount, 24, might leave on a free transfer at the end of the current season, United is eager to entice him to Old Trafford but does not agree with Chelsea’s assessment of him.

Sources have confirmed that United submitted a £40 million approach to Chelsea, but it was immediately rejected.

If United would not agree to Chelsea’s £70 million asking price, Chelsea is willing to keep Mount past the summer.

The Red Devils are anticipated to return with an improved offer that may be closer to £50 million, but they are hesitant to go that high and would require Chelsea to decrease their asking price to finalize a deal.

United officials are hopeful that Chelsea would eventually reduce their expectations, but Blues sources are emphatic that they won’t be forced into selling Mount for a bargain price.

Mauricio Pochettino, the incoming manager of Chelsea, has made it clear that he wants to keep Mount at Stamford Bridge, but negotiations for an extension have stalled, and United is one of a few teams eager to capitalize on the uncertainty.

Arsenal is one of the many suitors for Mount, and they’ve also gotten in touch with Chelsea about forward Kai Havertz.

Although the Gunners have not yet made an official offer for Havertz, it is believed that Chelsea and Arsenal place a much higher value on the player than United and Mount did.
