Erik ten Hag's priority target Mason Mount is close to completing his move from Chelsea to Manchester United after undergoing a medical at the club's Carrington training ground.

Manchester United agreed a total package of £60m for Mason Mount, who had entered the final year of his contract and felt undervalued by Chelsea's attempts to keep him at the club.

The Red Devils have agreed personal terms with Mount and after undergoing a medical, a club announcement is imminent. The 24-year-old will become United's first signing of the summer and will be expected to form part of a mouthwatering midfield three with Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes.
