WHAT OCCURED? United and Chelsea have finally reached an agreement on a transfer for Mount. United had an offer of £55 million ($69 million) rejected earlier this week, but have now agreed to pay £55 million plus £5 million ($6 million) in add-ons. According to GOAL, United will only pay the entire extra £5 million if Mount wins the Premier League or Champions League many times.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: United and Chelsea have been in talks throughout the summer, with United turning down three proposals for the England international. It looks like the tale is finally nearing its climax.
WHAT’S MORE: Chelsea has taken efforts to downsize Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, selling Kai Havertz to Arsenal and sending Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, and Edouard Mendy to Saudi Arabia.
WHAT COMES NEXT? Mount hopes to reach an agreement and bring this story to a close.
