Mount's Future at Chelsea Uncertain, Manchester United Looms as Potential Destination
According to The Athletic, Mason Mount is hoping to begin his new career at Manchester United, and it is not ruled out that Manchester United will find the right time to discuss the transfer of the player with Chelsea.
There are still many issues to be resolved regarding Mount's transfer, considering that Manchester United's primary target is to bring in a forward for their team. Additionally, with the Glazer family selling Manchester United, there remains uncertainty about who will be the future owners of the club. It has been reported that Mauricio Pochettino, who is set to take over as Chelsea's manager, hopes Mount will continue playing for the Blues. However, the key influence on Mount's decision will be whether he is willing to accept the new contract offered by Chelsea. Negotiations for a contract extension between Chelsea and Mount began in the summer of 2022, but so far, no progress has been made.
In addition to Manchester United's strong interest in Mount, Liverpool is also interested in the Chelsea midfielder, and Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann is keen on signing him. Furthermore, Arsenal is pursuing Mount, as Mikel Arteta plans to rebuild the midfield of his team. It is evident that even if Mount were to leave Chelsea, he would still be highly sought after, with many potential destinations for his next chapter. However, Mount has not yet made a decision about his future, and the possibility of him staying at Chelsea cannot be ruled out.
The Chelsea academy graduate made his debut in 2017 and has scored 33 goals in 195 appearances for Chelsea. At the international level, Mount has represented England in 36 matches, including the recently concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Chelsea, a prominent club in the Premier League, had a disappointing season, and the performances of their midfield maestro Mason Mount failed to satisfy Chelsea fans. Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar, who now plays for Shanghai Port in the Chinese Super League, voiced his support for Mount, saying, "I think it's not just Mount, but the entire team that had a poor season. It's not just the players' fault, and many people would think that these players don't deserve to stay at the club. Perhaps Mount can return to the excellent level he showed before. Of course, I believe if Mount is not happy at Chelsea, it wouldn't hurt to join another team. But if he is happy at the club, still wants to work hard for the team and grow into a great star at Chelsea, then he should stay."
