Manchester City’s pursuit of the treble is very much on course after their FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United on Saturday. 

Pep Guardiola’s side ran out 2-1 winners over their rivals at Wembley, with Ilkay Gundogan scoring either side of a Bruno Fernandes penalty to earn victory.

The Citizens have now won both the Premier League title and the FA Cup this season, and have the chance to complete a remarkable treble by beating Inter Milan in the Champions League final next weekend.

For United, manager Erik ten Hag has enjoyed a successful debut season at the club despite the defeat on Saturday.

The Red Devils lifted the Carabao Cup in February and finished third in the league table, comfortably securing their place in next season’s Champions League.

It also appears that United could soon be handed a huge boost, with one of Chelsea’s most important players set to sign a big money deal with the club.

Mount looks set to join Manchester United this summer

As per Football Insider, Blues midfielder Mason Mount will sign a £200,000-per-week deal with United, having opted to join the Manchester club over rivals Liverpool.

It is claimed that Mount’s decision to move to Old Trafford was influenced hugely by their qualification for next season’s Champions League, something that neither Chelsea nor Liverpool could offer.

The England international is said to have agreed personal terms with United, although a deal could be some way from being completed as the two clubs haven’t yet reached an agreement.

Mount is one of a number of players to have graduated from Chelsea’s academy into the first team in recent seasons, and has established himself as one of the best in the Premier League in his position.

In total, the ex-Derby County loanee has made 195 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists.

The 24-year-old’s current contract is set to expire at the end of next season, though, and talks between his representatives and his current employers have failed to produce an agreement.

With that in mind, Chelsea could choose to sell him during the upcoming transfer window, rather than losing him for free next year.
