When Mason Mount will finalise Chelsea exit as Man United medical date revealed



Mason Mount will formalise his transfer to Manchester United in the coming days, it has been revealed, after his medical was scheduled.

The 24-year-old has been given permission to undergo a medical at Man United after a £60 million fee was agreed with Chelsea this week, which will bring an end to an 18-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

Mount will sign a five-year contract at Old Trafford, with the option of a further year, after agreeing a £250,000-a-week deal with Erik ten Hag’s side. His contract has bonuses which could see it increase up to £300,000-a-week.

Chelsea were unable to agree an extension with Mount, who rejected three contract offers, as talks broke down earlier this year. Both clubs couldn’t find a resolution and a decision was made to swiftly resolve his future.

Mount is currently away on holiday and will return to England in the coming days, and his move to Man United is likely to be confirmed next week as pre-season gets underway.

Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph has now confirmed when Mount’s medical will take place as he swaps Cobham and Stamford Bridge for Carrington and the Theatre of Dreams. The medical has been scheduled for Monday.

His current Chelsea teammate Trevoh Chalobah, who came through the academy ranks with him, expressed his sadness at the news of Mount’s imminent departure.

Mount will leave Chelsea having won the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup, as well as two Player of the Year awards among the many youth honours he won during his time in the academy.

Matt Law adds that there appears to be an acceptance in both camps that contract negotiations between Chelsea and Mount became a mess with talks breaking down more than once before the bizarre offer of a one-year extension was made in February.

Chelsea will bank at least £55 million for Mount which will contribute as ‘pure profit’ on the financial books.

A transfer saga which had the potential of dragging on and becoming a distraction has been resolved before Mauricio Pochettino, who was keen to work with Mount, officially starts his head coach tenure and meets his new team next when they begin to report back for club duty.
