Mason Mount preparing Chelsea fans farewell as Manchester United plot summer transfer

As it looks more and more likely that the midfielder will leave his childhood club this summer, Matthew Mount is getting ready to say goodbye to Chelsea fans on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

Despite a contract dispute with Chelsea, incoming head coach Mauricio Pochettino has said he wants to keep Mount but hasn't yet tried to influence his decision.

Although there has been ongoing communication between Mount and the club over the past few weeks, Mount has been left in a limbo and has not had any direct contact with Pochettino.

The 24-year-old was last seen by Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly in April, but no follow-up contract offer has been made, raising the possibility that he will leave at the end of the current campaign.

Manchester United is prepared to make an offer for Mount, who has one year remaining on his contract.

Their interest stems from manager Erik ten Hag's admiration, who attempted to sign Mount on a loan for Ajax following his time with Vitesse in 2018.
