According to a report from Football.London, There is a significant disparity in the valuation of Mason Mount between Manchester United and Chelsea, potentially jeopardizing a possible transfer for the talented England international.

Mount’s Challenging Season at Stamford Bridge

Mount has faced a challenging campaign at Stamford Bridge, struggling to maintain consistency in the attacking third of the pitch. Despite his efforts, the 24-year-old has scored three goals and provided six assists in 35 appearances for the Blues across all competitions this season.

Although Mount has shown glimpses of his talent in the opponent’s half, evidenced by his average of 1.4 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 0.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League, his overall impact has been less impressive. Furthermore, he has demonstrated accuracy in his passing game, completing 80.1% of his attempted passes in league matches (statistics sourced from whoscored).

Should Chelsea Wait For Other Offers?

Mount has a remarkable skill in creating space on the field, allowing him to unleash powerful and accurate long-range shots. Additionally, his vision enables him to unlock opposing defences with precise and decisive passes in the final third.

The young English talent possesses decent dribbling skills, showcasing his ability to manoeuvre effectively with the ball in top form. However, Mount needs to focus on enhancing his offensive productivity to reach his full potential.

In the 2022-23 Premier League season, Mount has faced challenges when it comes to maintaining confidence while playing for Chelsea. As a result, United have been tempted to pursue him this summer, hoping to harness his abilities and extract his best performances in the upcoming season.

Chelsea have placed a price tag of £75 million on Mount’s potential departure from the club this summer, whereas Manchester United’s willingness to pay extends only up to £55 million. Contract negotiations between Chelsea and Mount have thus far been unsuccessful, as the club has been unable to meet the player’s demands, despite him having only 12 months remaining on his current contract.

Mount’s contractual situation has drawn interest from Liverpool and Man United, with the latter emerging as the leading contenders for a potential transfer. As a result, the Blues can wait and observe if the Red Devils submit another offer or if the Merseyside club manages to outmanoeuvre them. However, there is a risk involved; if both clubs decide against pursuing the transfer, Chelsea can lose Mount on a free transfer in the following season.
