Mason Mount favors Manchester United, talks expected ‘in due course’ — report

Mason Mount's decision to leave Chelsea and sign with Manchester United would be the perfect way to cap off this terrible Chelsea campaign.

The 24-year-old is expected to leave Chelsea this summer, despite the fact that there is as of yet no official confirmation in any way, shape, or form.

His contract is set to expire next year and there is no indication that it will be extended.

The Athletic reports that although Liverpool and Arsenal have also been mentioned, Mount is "leaning" more toward Manchester United.

With a suggested transfer fee of around £60 million, United are now anticipated to begin talks with Chelsea "in due course" about the possibility of a move.

We're fighting a losing battle, but it's still unclear why Mount wants to leave Chelsea so badly. It may be that we're not giving him enough money and power, or it may be something more complicated.
