England international midfielder, Mason Mount has officially completed a £60M transfer move from Chelsea to Manchester United.
The Chelsea academy graduate signed for the red devils after he refused to commit to a new deal at the club with just 12 months left on his current deal.
“It’s never easy leaving the club where you grew up, but Manchester United will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career”. Mount said.
“Having competed against them, I know just how strong a squad it is that I’m joining, and I can’t wait to be part of this group’s drive to win major trophies”.
“Everyone can see that the club has made big steps forward under Erik ten Hag. Having met with the manager and discussed his plans, I couldn’t be more excited for the seasons ahead and am ready for the hard work expected here.
“I am hugely ambitious; I know how amazing it feels to win major trophies and what it takes to do it. I will be giving everything to experience that again at Manchester United.”
Mount put pen to paper on a long-term contract that runs until June 2028 with an option for a further season.
