Check Out “Manchester United signed Mason Mount Officially.” The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year contract with an additional year’s option after leaving Chelsea for an initial fee of £55 million, plus $5 million in add-ons.
After 279 club games, 58 goals, 53 assists, a Champions League championship, and two Player of the Year accolades, Mount bid a fond farewell to Chelsea supporters last night.
It’s never easy to leave the team where you were raised, but Mount said joining Manchester United will be an exciting new challenge for the next stage of his career.
“Having competed against them, I am aware of how great the team I’m joining is, and I am eager to contribute to its desire to capture significant trophies.
“Under Erik ten Hag, the club has advanced significantly, as can be seen by everyone. After meeting with the management and learning about his goals, I am eagerly anticipating the upcoming seasons and am prepared to put in the necessary effort.
“I have a really high level of ambition; I understand how fantastic it is to win significant trophies and what it takes to do it. I will do anything to have that experience at Manchester United once more.
While David de Gea’s status remains uncertain, Manchester United is considering a £39 million bid for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.
The contract that De Gea was under at Old Trafford, which paid him £375,000 per week, came to an end on Saturday, the same day that he was getting married. As a result, he is no longer under any obligation to play for Old Trafford.
After 12 years of service for the Red Devils, it would appear that the Spaniard will be moving on. Although Manchester United indicated in a statement that they were still having discussions with David de Gea about the possibility of him staying with the club, there has been no update since then.
And it would appear that Erik ten Hag has moved on, as Fabrizio Romano has reported that Manchester United are getting ready to make their first official bid to capture Inter No. 1 Onana.
He goes on to say that Onana is eager to make the switch to the heavyweights of the Premier League, but it could be some time before a deal is reached because the Italian club is hoping for closer to £50 million in exchange.
