Chelsea manager Graham Potter has eased the pressure on himself after overseeing two victories in a matter of days at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues beat Leeds United in the Premier League on Saturday, with Wesley Fofana scoring his first league goal for the club.

Chelsea then defeated German side Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to overturn a first-leg deficit and progress into the last eight of the Champions League.

The ex-Brighton and Hove Albion boss therefore has reason for optimism ahead of his side’s trip to Leicester City on Saturday, although it appears that Chelsea may face a battle to keep hold of one of their most important players this summer.

As per The Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg, Manchester United have added Mason Mount to their list of potential targets for the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are said to be prioritising a move for a striker –  namely Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane – but they are also keen to sign a midfielder and Mount could be an option.

United are reportedly keen on Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, however the England international may prove too expensive if they are also willing to splash out on Kane.

Mount’s future at Stamford Bridge looks increasingly uncertain

Mount, 24, is set to be out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer and the club have so far failed in their attempts to agree an extension.

The midfielder could therefore be sold this summer if Chelsea decide to cash in and avoid losing him for free next summer.

Since making his senior debut for Chelsea back in 2019, Mount has made more than 190 appearances for the club, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists.

The Englishman has established himself as a fans’ favourite at Stamford Bridge, but his future in west London looks uncertain amid his ongoing contract standoff.

United’s rivals Liverpool are also believed to be interested in the midfielder, who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2021.
