According to a rumor from The Athletic, Mauricio Pochettino will make Jackson his first acquisition of the summer.
This summer, Manchester United made three offers to Chelsea for Mason Mount, all of which were rejected.
According to the report, the England international has reportedly reached an agreement with the Red Devils over his personal circumstances and is ready to make the transfer to Manchester.
However, Manchester United has not been able to meet Chelsea’s value of £65 million for the player, which leaves the door open for other clubs.
It is well known that Thomas Tuchel is a great fan of Mount, who is a versatile forward, and The Guardian reports that Bayern Munich are set to enter the competition for Mount.
Mount was an important player for Chelsea under Tuchel, and Bayern may be able to obtain a better price on the player because the Blues won’t be selling him to a team that is in direct competition with them in the Premier League.
In addition to Mason Mount, Manchester United is also interested in Moises Caicedo, a midfielder for Brighton.
The £55 million offer that United have made for Mount is still on the table, but the club is hesitant to increase their offer much for the Chelsea player who is refusing to sign a new deal.
Caicedo is seen to be worth as much by Brighton as Declan Rice, who is valued at £100 million.
United are considering making a bid for Caicedo, despite the fact that they are working with a limited budget this summer.
