Mercato: Chelsea and Manchester United reach agreement for Mason Mount
Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea for the transfer of English midfielder Mason Mount. The transfer is valued at 70 million euros.
The big sell-off continues at Chelsea. After selling Mateo Kovacic to Manchester City, Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly to Saudi Arabia, Kai Havertz to Arsenal and N'Golo Kanté to Al-Ittihad, the London club has reached an agreement with Manchester United for the transfer of Mason Mount.

After three rebuffed bids, the Red Devils finally convinced the Blues with a €70 million offer (including €5.7 million in bonuses), according to The Athletic.
