Mason Mount’s Potential Move to Manchester United in Limbo as Chelsea Sets Firm Deadline for Final Bid

The transfer of Mason Mount from Chelsea to Manchester United is uncertain at the moment as both teams are running out of time to finalize a deal. Negotiations have been taking place between the two clubs regarding the potential transfer of the 24-year-old midfielder this summer, but Chelsea has already turned down several offers.

According to information obtained by, Chelsea initially valued the midfielder at £70 million, despite him having only one year left on his contract. However, their position seems to have become more flexible in recent days. After rejecting a bid of approximately £50 million, Chelsea has now made a counteroffer for a total package worth £65 million.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have some flexibility in their positions, but there is still a sense of urgency as the deadline approaches. For Chelsea, completing the deal before June 30 is important if they want the financial benefits of the transfer to be reflected in their accounts for the previous year.

Since Boehly-Clearlake’s arrival at the club, a significant £600 million has been spent on deals. Therefore, there is a desire to improve the end-of-year financial accounts to some extent. However, there is currently little risk of Financial Fair Play (FFP) concerns.

Additionally, the departures of players such as Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Hakim Ziyech, Mateo Kovacic, and Kai Havertz would help trim the squad and bring some balance to the club’s finances.

Manchester United has their own considerations in this transfer negotiation. They would not want to risk losing out on their other potential targets in the transfer market, whether those targets are in different positions or as alternative options in midfield, aside from Mason Mount.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, it is crucial for the Mount deal to be finalized by the end of next week, indicating the time sensitivity of the situation for Manchester United.

Manchester United is prepared to make another offer for Mason Mount, but they are determined to reach a swift resolution regarding the discrepancy in valuation and are not willing to engage in prolonged negotiations. According to the report, a transfer fee in the range of £60 million to £65 million might be sufficient to secure the transfer, especially since personal terms have already been agreed upon.

If the negotiations extend beyond the specified deadline, it is uncertain whether Manchester United will withdraw from the pursuit of Mason Mount. The outcome of the transfer remains uncertain, as there is just over a week remaining until the deadline. The situation hangs in the balance, and the final decision will depend on how the negotiations progress within the limited time frame.
