According to a report in the Dailymail Manchester United are looking to tempt Chelsea and Mount’s resolve with a £55 million bid in the summer.

Liverpool who have said goodbye to the likes of James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are in the market for a new midfielder and have been monitoring the midfielder’s situation in London.

Champions League winner Mount has interest from abroad too with Bayern Munich also widely reported to be a suitor -but Chelsea holds the first refusal with the midfielder’s contract set to expire in the summer of 2024.

According to reports, Mount is holding out for £ 250,000 a week like pal Reece James, a figure Chelsea have not moved to agree. Chelsea are reportedly hoping to bank £85m for Mount, who has been at the club since 2005 after coming through their Cobham academy.

He has 33 goals in 195 games for the Blues since his 2019 debut but has struggled this season due to injuries after winning Chelsea’s Player of the Season twice in the last two years.

Chelsea are 12 in the Premier League table and won't be involved in any kind of European football having fallen deep into chaos under Todd Boehly and his Clearlake Capital consortium.

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino who is set to take over in the summer is however interested in Mount and will have a say on if the midfielder stays or leaves.
