Romano: Manchester United’s focus remains on Mason Mount

Manchester United’s focus remains on Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount this summer, according to the very latest Fabrizio Romano report.

Manchester United already have some potential alternatives to Mason Mount lined up, but plan to keep on pushing to sign the Chelsea midfielder, according to Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive CaughtOffside column.

It’s all we have heard about this week and the majority of Chelsea fans are sick and tired of the whole saga, that they will be hoping to end very soon.

Mount reportedly will not sign a new contract with Chelsea now and wants to move to United this summer, but at the moment, Chelsea and United are a little bit off in valuation despite three bids coming in from Erik Ten Hag’s side last week. It remains to be seen if a conclusion can be reached, but United are still prioritising this move over other potential alternative targets.

“Of course Man United have alternatives in case this move doesn’t work out, but I’m still told the focus now is on the Mason Mount deal,” Romano explained.

“They want to get it done at their conditions, the situation will be discussed again this week; in or out, for sure. Man United don’t want any extra-tax just because they spent big money on players recently; fair price or nothing.

“But it’s also worth saying that Man United feel Mount will not sign new deal at Chelsea and only wants to join them.

“At the moment, there is no signal from Liverpool in terms of joining the race, as they’re busy with other midfielders, and also Mount is focused on United. He’s really focused on Manchester United as next step for his career; and one of the reasons why Man Utd insist a lot is that they feel Mount only wants them.”
