Chelsea send Man United counter-offer for Mason Mount after THIRD rejected bid – face-to-face talks proposed



| Last Updated:


Chelsea have rejected a third bid from Manchester United for Mason Mount.

Following two bids, Man United lodged a third offer of £50 million plus £5 million in add-ons.

It was claimed to be a final offer with United not keen to have a drawn out transfer saga, but Chelsea have rejected the improved bid.

Chelsea have countered their Premier League with £58 million plus £7 million in add-ons. They are also willing to meet for face-to-face talks to resolve the situation.

Mount has made it clear he wants to leave Chelsea for United this summer and would even be willing to leave for free next summer at the end of his contract if a deal is not agreed.

It remains to be seen what United will now do after Chelsea rejected another bid for the 24-year-old. Chelsea initially valued Mount at £70 million before slightly reducing their asking price.

New head coach Mauricio Pochettino was keen to have Mount as part of his plans next season, but the midfielder’s future is becoming increasingly unclear as United mount the pressure. 

Ben Jacobs suggests Man United will not walk away from a deal due to there being a desire and optimism of a deal eventually being agreed. 

Chelsea are also close to finalising the sales of Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz. Kovacic will join Man City for £30 million, while Havertz will undergo a medical this weekend ahead of finalising a £67.5 million switch to Arsenal
