- Ten Hag confident of Mount transfer
- Club has held talks with midfielder
- Pochettino will try to keep Mount
What’s the latest news?
According to insider information from The Telegraph, Manchester United’s manager has already engaged in discussions with representatives of Mount behind closed doors. It is believed that the talented English international is open to a move to Old Trafford. Mount’s current contract with Chelsea is set to expire next year, and he has allegedly expressed his reluctance to extend it.
After delivering two impressive seasons for Chelsea, Mount endured a disappointing campaign with The Blues. Initially a regular starter under Thomas Tuchel, his fortunes took a turn for the worse following the manager’s departure and Graham Potter’s subsequent appointment. Despite Potter’s subsequent dismissal, Mount found himself oscillating between the substitutes’ bench and the field. Ultimately, he made 24 appearances in the Premier League, managing to score only four goals.
Chelsea has recently appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new head coach, and rumors abound that the Argentine is keen on holding talks with Mount to persuade him to remain at Stamford Bridge. Pochettino officially assumes his role on June 1st and aims to make a final effort to retain Mount’s services before the summer break.
Interest from other clubs
It’s worth noting that Manchester United faces competition from several top English clubs, including Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool, all of whom have expressed interest in securing Mount’s signature. Nevertheless, indications suggest that Mount favors joining Erik ten Hag’s United side. The Red Devils finished third in the league this season, securing a coveted spot in the prestigious UEFA Champions League.
