Erik ten Hag could give Mason Mount a new place at Manchester United

It seems inevitable that Mason Mount will be Manchester United’s first signing of the summer and the move was confirmed last week.

Erik ten Hag wants Mount, this player wants to exchange Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford and Chelsea are ready to sell. The transfer makes sense for all parties and the agreed initial fee of £55m represents fair market value.

Any avid social media user may feel the pursuit of Mount is a small transfer story, but in reality, the deal is relatively straightforward, while last summer negotiations about Frenkie de Jong is as complicated as deciphering the Enigma.

Director of football John Murtough tried his best to imitate Alan Turing in his negotiations with Barcelona but his efforts were in vain. De Jong was the one to leave, but Mount was seen by Ten Hag as the perfect replacement for the Dutchman.

Mount is a welcome addition and he will channel much-needed energy into midfield. The 24-year-old is yet to reach his prime years and he should continue to hone key aspects of his game under Ten Hag’s guidance.

Ten Hag has improved almost every club player in his first season at the helm and Mount’s push for improvement is also expected. He is already an England international and he has the potential to grow into a world-class operator.
