According to GOAL, England international Mason Mount was convinced to leave Chelsea for Manchester United after being “wowed” by Erik ten Hag’s appreciation of his playing style.

Mount has joined Manchester United from Chelsea in a deal worth £60million after deciding not to extend his stay at Chelsea.

The report adds that Mount “ticks all the core traits” that Ten Hag looks for in a midfielder without the ball while “being comfortable as a creator” at the same time.

Ten Hag  has laid down 83 principles after he arrived at Manchester United and it is believed that Mount fulfills most of them.

Mount was surprised by Ten Hag’s detailed reading of his game and his overall appreciation of it, which convinced him to join United.

Mount has signed a five-year contract at Manchester United for an initial £250,000-a-week wages, which can increase to £300,000 if various performance-related clauses are met.
