New Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag is reportedly considering a move for Chelsea star Mason Mount.

The England international yet again proved his calibre this season. He made 53 appearances for the Blues and scored 13 goals and 16 assists in the process.

Mount has just over two years left on his contract. Moreover, it has been known that he is the lowest-paid player to be featuring for the first time.

Though Chelsea are continuing to press for a new deal, however, that has now reportedly halted.

Moreover, The Sun reports that United boss Ten Hag is keeping a watch over the situation.

The report has already claimed that United have already had a round of talks with Mount’s representatives. Through this, they have registered their interest in the player.

What attracted Erik Ten Hag to register interest in Mount?

Ten Hag is said to be a great fan of Mount’s gameplay. It is said that Mount caught the eye of Ten Hag when he was on loan with Dutch club Vitesse during the 2017-18 campaign.

The Dutch manager is eager to ‘jump at the opportunity’ to bring the youngster to Old Trafford when the summer transfer market opens.

On the other hand, Manchester City and Liverpool are said to have made ‘discreet inquiries’. Moreover, Barcelona are also said to have a close watch on how things unfold at the Stamford Bridge.

Mount was a key player in the Tuchel’s side this year scoring 11 times and providing 10 assists as he featured in 32 games in the Premier League.

He even played in the Champions League scoring once and providing two assists. Additionally, he donned the Chelsea shirt 11 times while playing in the EFL and FA Cup.

Mount has shown that he is capable to be playing in many positions with the team.

United would see the departure of quite a few seasoned players in the likes of Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba.

Therefore, Ten Hag would be eager to sign this star attacker to his team.
