Mason Mount ‘to snub Liverpool for Man Utd transfer’ as Chelsea star nears exit



Mason Mount ‘to snub Liverpool for Man Utd transfer’ as Chelsea star nears exit

Mason Mount is reportedly set to snub Liverpool in favour of a move to Manchester United.

The Chelsea midfielder’s future remains unclear as the Premier League season comes to a halt. Mount has just one year left on his current contract with the club, which has seen him linked with a whole host of rival teams in recent months.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal are understood to be interested in the England international – but Mount is said to be “leaning towards” joining the Red Devils.

The Athletic report a number of hurdles must still be cleared if the 24-year-old is to become an Old Trafford star. That includes an actual financial agreement between the two clubs, as well as United’s lengthy saga over their potential new ownership being concluded.

It will come as a huge blow to Liverpool, who were reported by The Athletic to be favourites to sign the Englishman in March, as Jurgen Klopp looks to revitalise his midfield.

Mount has also been linked with Premier League high-flyers Arsenal as Mikel Arteta tries to bring in a long-term replacement for Granit Xhaka in the left-sided midfield role.

Yet incoming Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be a fan of Mount and may look to keep the player. That could provide another potential spanner in the works for the likes of United, who have prioritised a striker this summer.

Mount came through the Chelsea academy to make 195 appearances for the Blues. He has scored 33 goals and lifted the Champions League since making his debut in 2017.

The midfielder’s progress has hit a snag this season, having suffered injuries and played under three different managers. That has reflected in him registering just three goals and six assists across all competitions.

Didi Hamann names Newcastle United midfielder as the ideal Liverpool signing

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been told to launch a shock pursuit for Newcastle United midfielder Joelinton as he would be the ‘perfect’ fit for his impending rebuild.

Liverpool plan to revamp their engine room in the summer with several signings to offset James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain departing the club. Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister is thought to be a prime target in that respect.

However, there are other names on the radar, such as Mason Mount, Nicolo Barella and Ryan Gravenberch, while former Liverpool and Newcastle midfielder Dietmar Hamann admits he would love to see Joelinton make the move he made all those years ago.

Having initially struggled on these shores, the Brazilian forward-turned midfielder has been a shining light for the Champions League-bound Magpies in their successful top-four push this season.

During an interview with i news, in which he was pressed on potential summer targets, Hamann said: “I’d like a player like Joelinton from Newcastle, who’s got a physical presence.”

Hamann continued: “The players Liverpool have got are all very similar. If you look at the size of the Newcastle team and size isn’t everything, but when you stand in the tunnel and see these guys you think ‘wow’ – because they’re not just big, they can play as well.

“I would like a player of Joelinton’s stature, who can make a goal, has got a physical presence and good on the ball, he’s just an all-round player and hasn’t got too many defensive responsibilities with one player behind him. A player with a physical presence would suit Liverpool very well.”

Hamann, 49, spent 11 years in the Premier League during his career. Having touched down in the UK with Newcastle before the 1998/1999 season, he headed to Anfield only 11 months later to make 283 appearances in all competitions, as well as winning nine major trophies.
