Chelsea are set to receive Manchester United’s opening offer for Mason Mount this week as the summer transfer window officially opens.

The window opens on Wednesday and Chelsea are expecting an overhaul of their squad to trim and refine new head coach Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.

One player who is the subject of heavy interest is Mount. Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal are all in the race, but it’s United who have reportedly agreed personal terms with the 24-year-old.

Chelsea have, thus far, been unable to agree a new deal with Mount, who is out of contract next summer, which could see him leave the club in order for the Blues to cash in on the England international.

Talks are yet to resume between Chelsea and Mount, with Man United now ready to step up their pursuit this week.

As reported by Rob Dawson of ESPN, United will lodge their first bid in the coming days despite the clubs having a disparity in valuations.

Chelsea value Mount in excess of £70 million, while Erik ten Hag’s side believe he is worth between £50-55 million, according to reports. 

Mount was asked about his future by Sky Sports at the recent Spanish GP, but he was quick to shift the attention onto the Formula 1 race day instead. 

Teammates Ben Chilwell and Reece James publicly expressed their desires for Mount to stay. Pochettino would also like the midfielder to be part of his plans next season.

While Mount’s future remains unclear, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of many players who look destined to depart.

The 33-year-old is attracting interest from Saudi Arabia this summer, with four clubs interested, according to Sky Sports, offering him and Chelsea a lifeline to part company after just one season.

Aubameyang could join N’Golo Kante after he agreed a two-year deal to join Al-Ittihad on a free transfer once his contract at Chelsea expires at the end of June.
