Mason Mount was asked about potential Man United transfer during F1 grid walk

Chelsea star Mason Mount was asked about a potential move to Manchester United prior to the F1 Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

Over the last few months, Mount’s future with the Stamford Bridge club has been the talk of the town after reports that contract negotiations have stalled.

This week, it was widely reported that United have registered their interest in the 24-year-old and that Mount would be open to a move to the Red Devils.



On Sunday, ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, Mount was present on the grid as Martin Brundle grilled him about his future on Sky Sports.

After speaking to Ben Chilwell, Brundle moved to Mount and jokingly said: “He said you’re going to Manchester United.”

Mount replied: “I’m here to just enjoy this race today, amazing day and I can’t wait to watch it.”

Earlier on in the day, Chilwell was asked about Mount’s future, the full-back said: “That's none of my business. But personally, I would love him to stay. He's my best mate so personally I would love him to stay.


“But that's none of my business. I can't really comment on that.”

Whilst fellow Chelsea star Reece James said: “If he goes, everyone will be sad to see him go.”

After the season’s final match, Mount appeared to look emotional as he made his way around Stamford Bridge, which fuelled speculation that he is destined to leave Chelsea in the summer.


It has been reported that the Blues value Mount at around £85 million despite his contract running out at the end of the 23/24 campaign.

However, United are believed to be looking closer around the £55 million mark.

Aside from United, the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal are also thought to be interested in signing Mount.

Who do you think Mount will be playing for when the new season gets underway? Let us know in the comments.
