Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign Mason Mount for an overall fee of £60 million ($76m).
  • United finally make breakthrough
  • Chelsea agree to sell
  • Deal set to be finalised

WHAT HAPPENED? United and Chelsea have finally come to an agreement over a deal for Mount. United had a bid of £55m ($69m) rejected earlier this week but have now agreed to pay £55m plus £5m ($6m) in add-ons. GOAL understands that United will only end up paying the full extra £5m in the event Mount wins the Premier League title or Champions League multiple times.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: United and Chelsea have been locked in negotiations throughout the summer window, with United tabling no fewer than three bids for the England international. It now appears that the saga is finally edging towards a conclusion.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Chelsea have taken steps to trim the squad of new manager Mauricio Pochettino, and have also sold Kai Havertz to Arsenal, while seeing Kalidou Koulibaly, N'Golo Kante, and Edouard Mendy head to Saudi Arabia.
