Manchester United have been linked with a number of potential targets in the opening weeks of the summer transfer window. 

The Red Devils finished third last season during Erik ten Hag’s first term in charge of the club, and the Dutchman will want to bolster his squad ahead of the upcoming campaign.

With that in mind, United are said to have made a third offer for one of their top targets, but the Manchester outfit are reportedly prepared to walk away from the proposed deal if it isn’t accepted.

As per 90min, United have made a third offer worth around £55 million for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

The offer is said to be made up of an initial £50 million, plus a further £5 million in add-ons.

The report claims that the Red Devils are confident that their latest bid for the England international will be accepted by their rivals.

Mount, 24, is a product of the Blues’ youth academy and made his senior debut for the club in 2019.

The Englishman has now made 195 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists.

Mount looks likely to leave Chelsea this summer

Despite his importance to the team, Chelsea are expected to allow Mount to leave for the right price this summer, with the player reportedly refusing to sign an extension to his current contract which expires next year.

United’s first two offers for the player were believed to be worth £40 million and £50 million respectively, while the Blues have set a £70 million price tag for the midfielder.

Regardless, the report claims that Chelsea would be willing to accept an offer in the region of £60-65 million for Mount.

If United’s third offer for Mount is refused by Chelsea, the Manchester club will reportedly walk away from the proposed deal and instead look for alternative options.

It is also claimed that personal terms have already been agreed between Mount and United, leaving just the fee between the two clubs to be finalised.
