‘The excitement is mounting’ – Man United complete Mason Mount signing

564

Manchester United have finalised the acquisition of Mason Mount from Chelsea, as the talented midfielder cites Erik ten Hag’s vision as a decisive factor in leaving his childhood club.

The 24-year-old becomes Ten Hag’s first signing of the summer, with the transfer agreement amounting to an initial fee of £55 million, potentially rising by an additional £5 million through performance-related add-ons.

Mount has committed to a five-year contract, including the option to extend for an additional year, and has been handed the iconic number 7 shirt by the club.

The England international said, “Having met with the manager, and discussed his plans, I couldn’t be more excited for the seasons ahead.”

“Everyone can see that the club has made big steps forward under Erik ten Hag. I am hugely ambitious; I know how amazing it feels to win major trophies and what it takes to do it. I will be giving everything to experience that again at Manchester United.”

“It’s never easy leaving the club where you grew up, but Manchester United will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career,” Mount added.

“Having competed against them, I know just how strong a squad it is that I’m joining, and I can’t wait to be part of this group’s drive to win major trophies.”

Mount on Tuesday bid an emotional farewell to Chelsea. Mount, who joined the Blues aged just six, scored 33 goals in 195 appearances for Chelsea since making his senior debut in 2019. He helped them win the Champions League in 2021.
