Ben Chilwell urges Mason Mount to snub Manchester United and stay at Chelsea

Mason Mount’s move from Chelsea to Manchester United has seemed likely for a while. According to Manchester Evening News, the England international has agreed on personal terms with the Red Devils.

As per Ben Jacobs via GiveMeSport (h/t Express), the Red Devils are adamant they want to sign him for under £60million. The two clubs are yet to agree on a fee for him.

He will enter the final year of his contract next month, which obviously favours us. It’s better for Chelsea, financially speaking, to take what we offer them rather than lose Mount for nothing in 2024.

The 24-year-old is Chelsea through and through. He has been at Chelsea since 2005 and it would certainly be a heartbreaking moment for the Blues fans to see him leave.

Mount to leave Chelsea?

Ben Chilwell won’t be too happy about Mason Mount leaving either. He has formed a close bond with his compatriot since joining the west London giants from Leicester City in the summer of 2020.

Speaking about Mount’s future at Stamford Bridge, the English left-back said, via MEN:

“I mean, that’s none of my business personally, but I’d love him to stay. He’s my best mate, so personally I would love him to stay. But, it’s none of my business – I can’t really comment on that.”

Mount is a player in the prime of his career and still has a lot to offer. Manchester United must avoid paying a premium fee for him and try to get the playmaker to put pressure on Chelsea to force an exit.

After all, he has apparently agreed upon personal terms with us. It won’t make sense to pay a huge fee for a player who could be signed for nothing in the summer of 2024.

He would add immense depth to our midfield and flanks. But we can’t let a huge budget go towards signing Mount when we clearly have a No.9 to sign as well.
