Mason Mount set for huge pay rise as Man Utd contract offer revealed ahead of Chelsea move
| Last updated
Mason Mount is set for a huge pay rise should he complete his move from Chelsea to Manchester United, according to reports.
United saw a third bid for the England international worth £55million rebuffed last week, but they have now reportedly agreed to pay an initial £55million fee plus £5million in add-ons.
The 24-year-old has now been given permission to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms with the Old Trafford club, while both sides put the finishing touches to the paperwork.
Mount will allegedly sign a contract at United until 2028, with the option for a further year.
Mason Mounts’s wage increase
According to Football Insider and the Telegraph, Mount is set for a huge wage increase at United.
FBRef claims the midfielder currently earns £80,000-a-week at Chelsea.
However, Football Insider reported in early June that Mount will earn around £200,000-per-week at Old Trafford - more than double his current wage.
Meanwhile Matt Law of the Telegraph has claimed Mount will make £250,000-per-week at United, which could rise to some £300,000-per-week with bonuses included.
Mount had a year left to run on his deal at Stamford Bridge but contract negotiations cooled late last year. Chelsea were subsequently keen to comply with the player’s wishes over a potential exit.
Mount is the product of the Chelsea academy and has made 195 appearances for the club since his first-team debut in 2017, scoring 33 goals in that time.
He also spent two seasons out on loan at Vitesse Arnhem and Derby County respectively between 2017 and 2019 before establishing himself as a Chelsea first-teamer in Frank Lampard’s first spell in charge.
United will be hoping Mount can hit the ground running at Old Trafford. To do so however, he will have to fully recover from a pelvic injury suffered towards the end of last term which saw him miss Chelsea's final game of the season against Newcastle.
