United could do with a younger alternative to Christian Eriksen, who has never looked likely to be a long-term option for Erik ten Hag’s side, so the Red Devils will no doubt hope they remain in a strong position here.
Mount has been a key player for Chelsea until his struggles this term, but MUFC might also need a little more clarity on their ownership situation before this ambitious deal can go ahead.
