The Red Devils are on the verge of signing one of their priority targets in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement with Manchester United over Mason Mount’s transfer.

The Blues rejected three formal offers from United, insisting on their £60m valuation of the homegrown star. Earlier this week, a report from Times claimed the Red Devils were not planning to raise their £55m offer for Mount.

However, it seems that United have finally agreed to meet Chelsea’s demand for the midfielder.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Man Utd already have a personal agreement in place with Mount.

The England international will reportedly undergo medicals at United after the weekend. Mount will join Erik ten Hag’s side on a five-year deal, with United accepting to pay a fixed £55m fee plus £5m in add-ons.

Mount’s arrival will provide Man Utd with more squad depth in midfield, where Christian Eriksen made 44 appearances last season. However, the move will significantly limit United’s ability to sign new players this summer.

According to the aforementioned report from the Times, the Red Devils can spend £100-120m on new signings unless they sell players in the current transfer window.

Signing a replacement for David de Gea seems to be United’s next priority in the market. According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, the Red Devils are ready to make a €50m for Inter’s Andre Onana in the coming days.
