In light of Chelsea rejecting the third bid sent by Manchester United for Mason Mount, different reports have come to the fore regarding the Red Devils ending their pursuit of the 24-year-old.

However, despite the Blues turning down the offer from Erik Ten Hag’s side it is understood that they are still interested in signing the England International.

Manchester United tabled a third bid of £50 million guaranteed payment plus £5 million in bonuses for Mason Mount but Chelsea rejected it.

The West London side afterwards responded with a counter-proposal of £58 million guaranteed payment plus £7 million add-ons to sanction the sale of Mount.

They also offered to meet United in person to find a resolution in the interest of all parties involved.

According to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, the third bid sent in by Manchester United is still available and valid on the table.

However, the Old Trafford side are unwilling to pay the £65 million demanded by Chelsea for Mason Mount.

Both parties can still discuss the deal, but it is believed that Manchester United won’t wait forever.

The Red Devils feel their £55 million proposal tabled for a player who is heading into the final year of his contract is fair.

Fabrizio Romano also revealed that the face-to-face meeting Chelsea have offered Erik Ten Hag’s side is expected to hold this week and they feel the deal should be resolved this week as timing is very important.

Mason Mount wants to join Manchester United

Mount is really keen on a move to Manchester United and he has reportedly made it clear to Chelsea that he isn’t signing a new deal with the club.

Due to Mount’s desire to join United, it has spurred the interest of the Red Devils, having already agreed personal terms with the 24-year-old.

However, the Red Devils are not willing to part with an unrealistic amount to get the Englishman’s signature.

The Old Trafford club will only pursue other targets if and when the deal for Mason Mount collapses, although that is not the present reality.

It has been reported that Manchester United are eyeing West Ham United’s captain Declan Rice and Brighton’s Moises Caicedo.

However, based on the reports gathered they want to wrap up the deal for Mason Mount first.

Moises Caicedo is supposedly a top target for Chelsea and Fabrizio Romano claims they are still favorites to land the Ecuadorian.

But Romano indicates that no advanced talks have been made between both clubs yet.

For Declan Rice, financial fair play regulations might hamper Manchester United from agreeing a deal for the England International.

However, there are reports indicating that the Reds Devils want to go the route of a player-plus-cash bid in order to sign Declan Rice.

The summer is still a long way from being over and definitely more interesting developments will still emanate from the transfer window.
