Erik ten Hag makes a third attempt to sign Mason Mount

After Chelsea rejected their first two offers for midfielder Mason Mount, Manchester United made an improved third offer for £55 million; it is believed that the Blues are seeking close to £65 million. Mason Mount, a midfielder for Chelsea, has received an improved third offer from Manchester United for £55 million. Though it is believed that Chelsea would want to get closer to £65 million, United is not anticipated to boost their offer if it is turned down and is actively pursuing alternative options.

Initial Observations

Mount only has one year left on his contract, and United has already rejected two offers for him. If they hear back from Chelsea favorably, they are willing to discuss the specifics of their most recent proposal. Declan Rice, the captain of West Ham, is still a target for United, and the possibility of approving a transaction has been considered. Financial Fair Play regulations prevent United from spending a significant amount of their resources on a single player, mainly because they have other areas they wish to improve.

They are considering a variety of alternative midfield possibilities as a result. However, the possibility of player sales would boost their purchasing power. When Erik ten Hag was the head coach of Ajax, he first ran into Mount. The 18-year-old was playing on loan at Vitesse Arnhem when his free kick set up his team’s third goal in a 3-2 victory over Ajax. Ten Hag allegedly sought to sign Mount for the Dutch team the following season on loan from Chelsea when he was in charge of just his ninth game at Ajax. In his first full season of senior football, Ten Hag had produced 14 goals and 10 assists, primarily from central midfield.

How can Mount improve United?

Given what Manchester United has been lacking this season, Mount is now prepared for a new challenge, and I believe this may be a match made in heaven. They severely struggled when Casemiro was out due to suspension and Christian Eriksen was injured. Although Mount has more legs in midfield than Eriksen does, both offensively and defensively, he shares many of Eriksen’s strengths. Ignore what happened last season; Manchester United is getting a performer with great character and a track record. Also Read:Manchester United already has a successor for Jadon Sancho.
