How Cristiano Ronaldo’s acrimonious exit from Man Utd helped convince Mason Mount to join the club

According to reports, Mason Mount was persuaded to join the team as a result of Cristiano Ronaldo’s contentious Manchester United exit.

It was revealed last week that United had reached an agreement to sign Mount to a five-year deal worth £55 million plus $5 million in add-ons.

Furthermore, Mount, who joined Chelsea when he was six years old, has passed his United physical and will be named shortly, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The England international will be Erik ten Hag’s first summer addition as United looks to strengthen the team after qualifying for the Champions League.

Indeed, Chelsea were reportedly reluctant to lose Mount but could not successfully tie him down to a new contract, with the midfielder’s current deal set to expire next year.

The 24-year-old, who has scored 33 goals in 195 Chelsea appearances since making his senior debut four years ago, was being pursued by Liverpool and United.

He opted to join the latter, however, partly because of how Ten Hag dealt with a turbulent first season at United.

Sky Sports News claims that Mount chose to join United over staying at Chelsea or moving to Liverpool because of Ten Hag’s compelling offer.
Additionally, the United backroom staff and coaching staff put together a film demonstrating how Mount fit into Ten Hag’s system, how he could affect the team’s midfield, and the aspects of his game Ten Hag could help improve.

According to the story, the Mount was inspired by how quickly Ten Hag transformed United while navigating a challenging era off the field that included takeover uncertainty, Ronaldo’s departure, and an internal Mason Greenwood probe.



Mount will be United’s first summer signing. The club will now turn their attention to a goalkeeper and striker as a priority.

However, it is thought Ten Hag is working to a net spend of about £100million, which will be difficult in an inflated market.

The club will look to sell well to raise funds, with Fred attracting interest from Fulham and Dean Henderson a Nottingham Forest target.
