Official: Man Utd Confirm First 2023/24 Signing

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

The 24-year-old came through Chelsea’s youth academy but was one of the main targets of United coach Erik ten Hag.

On Wednesday, United confirmed the arrival of Mount on a four-year contract, with an option for another year.

“It’s never easy leaving the club where you grew up, but Manchester United will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career. Having competed against them, I know just how strong a squad it is that I’m joining, and I can’t wait to be part of this group’s drive to win major trophies,” Mount told United’s website.

“Everyone can see that the club has made big steps forward under Erik ten Hag. Having met with the manager and discussed his plans, I couldn’t be more excited for the seasons ahead, and am ready for the hard work expected here. 

“I am hugely ambitious; I know how amazing it feels to win major trophies and what it takes to do it. I will be giving everything to experience that again at Manchester United.”

Mount made 195 appearances for the Blues, scoring 33 goals and setting up 37 more. He won three major trophies with Chelsea, the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, the 2021/22 UEFA Super Cup and the 2022 FIFA Club World Cup.
