Manchester United has reportedly made its intentions clear to Mason Mount, expressing a strong desire to bring the talented midfielder to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have sent messages to the Chelsea star, affirming their commitment to completing the transfer in the coming days.
Although personal terms are not expected to be a stumbling block as Mount is keen on the move, negotiations have hit a roadblock due to the transfer fee.
According to sources close to the matter, Chelsea has been adamant in demanding an €80 million fee for their prized asset. This significant valuation has been the primary reason for the lack of progress in negotiations this week. Despite the impasse, Manchester United remains undeterred and is determined to find a breakthrough in the talks.
