Manchester United are likely to make an official approach to Chelsea regarding the signing of midfielder Mason Mount.
Internal talks over a potential bid are said to be ongoing, with Mount one of a handful of midfielders United are looking at in what is considered a key position this summer.
Personal terms are not expected to be a concern if a deal can be reached.
Mount’s Chelsea contract expires in June 2024. Manchester United have enquired about his availability this season and have been encouraged by his tricky situation at Stamford Bridge.
Mount last played for Chelsea in April before suffering pelvic surgery, which forced him to miss the balance of the season. He appeared to be saying his goodbyes after Sunday’s 1-1 draw at home to Newcastle United, which finished a disappointing season.
Since breaking into the main team, the 24-year-old Chelsea academy alumnus has won the Champions League and Club World Cup. He also appeared in three consecutive FA Cup finals, as well as their League Cup final loss to Liverpool on penalties last year.
Mount has made 36 appearances for England, including a start in the Euro 2020 final loss to Italy.

Sky Sports’ Paul Merson:
“I cannot believe Chelsea are letting Mason Mount go.
“We saw it last season with Antonio Rudiger, who was outstanding and one of the best defenders at the club. He asked for more money and they didn’t give him it and then they buy Kalidou Koulibaly for £33m on a four-year contract which works out as more money than what they’d give Rudiger.
