Mason Mount to Manchester United is nearing completion, with a physical scheduled for today.
Mason Mount will receive a medical check at Manchester United today. He now prepares to sign a long-term contract with the Old Trafford club.
After both teams agree on the transfer fee, the next critical stage will be the physical. The arrangement is likely to be worth £55 million, with a further £5 million in add-ons. Mount, whose current contract with Chelsea expires in a year, will likely sign with United this week.
Earlier, there were rumblings that Manchester United were examining other possibilities after Chelsea turned down a £55 million bid.
Following talks, it appears that both Premier League titans have reached an agreement on the trade of the English midfielder. The 24-year-old is likely to sign a five-year deal with United.
Mount is looks forward to get a medical checkup on Monday, which coincides with the start of United’s preseason, according to journalist Romano.

The 24-year-old playmaker is likely to quit Chelsea after scoring 33 goals and assisting 37 times in 195 appearances in all competitions.
Mount, on the other hand, struggled to make an impression for Chelsea last season, with only three goals and six assists in 35 appearances across all competitions. Injury limited his play, with a pelvic operation keeping him out until the conclusion of the 2022-23 season.
The midfielder is likely to complete his move to United this week. He might make his debut for the club in their pre-season encounter against Leeds United on July 12.
Lyon, Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Lens, and Athletic Bilbao are among the clubs on United’s preseason itinerary.
Mount might make his Red Devils debut on August 14 against Wolverhampton Wanderers, as United look to kick off their Premier League campaign with a win. Fans will be waiting for the 24-year-old to don the legendary Red jersey.
Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s side is still actively looking for new players this summer, with a special focus on bringing in a new center-forward and at least one goalkeeper.
The actual amount available for transfers, however, remains unknown due to the club’s ongoing takeover problem.
