Chelsea have lowered their asking price for Manchester United target Mason Mount after the midfielder informed the Blues that he won’t extend his contract, according to Fabrizio Romano via Metro.
This comes after Manchester United had a £50million for Mount rejected by Chelsea. The bid, which was around £45m with £5m of add-ons, was some way short of Chelsea’s initial £75m asking price for Mount.
With Mount informing Chelsea that he has no intention of signing a new contract, Chelsea will now reportedly accept a fee closer to £60million for Mount.
Mount’s current contract expires in 2024 and he could sign a pre-contract agreement with non-English clubs from January 1st.
