Mason Mount posts emotional goodbye video to Chelsea fans ahead of Man Utd transfer

Mason Mount posts emotional goodbye video to Chelsea fans ahead of Man Utd transfer

Mason Mount will leave Chelsea to join Manchester United this summer.

Mason Mount has delivered an emotional farewell to Chelsea fans ahead of his incoming £60 million move to Manchester United.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who completed his medical at Carrington on Monday, will sign a five-year deal at Old Trafford worth a reported £250,000 per week after a £55 million fee plus £5 million in add-ons was agreed.

He will soon become Manchester United's first signing of the summer when a deal is made official but before an announcement was posted, Mount took to social media to say goodbye to the Chelsea supporters.

"Hi Chelsea fans. Given the speculation over the last six months, this may not come as a surprise to you but it doesn't make it any easier to tell you that I've made a decision to leave Chelsea," he began.

"You deserved more than a written statement..."

You can watch the full video released on Tuesday night below.

Mount added: "I wanted to tell you directly how grateful I've been for all of your support over the last 18 years.

"I know some of you won't be happy with my decision, but it's what is right for me at this moment in my career.

"I joined Chelsea when I was six years old and we've been through a lot together. Winning the youth cup, my player of the year awards, Super Cup the Club World Cup and of course that unforgettable night when we won the Champions League.

"I want to say thank you to the academy, Jim and Neil for being so influential to me from such a young age, the managers I've worked under: Frank, Thomas and Graham. Backroom staff, they're the unsung heroes at Cobham, all of my teammates over the years that have become my brothers.

"My family for the continuous love and support and most importantly you guys for sticking with me throughout. I wish you all the best."
