Mason Mount, the talented Chelsea midfielder, made an appearance at the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix, sparking speculation about his future as Manchester United reportedly agreed on personal terms with the 24-year-old ahead of a potential summer transfer.
With one year left on his contract at Chelsea and no fresh deal in sight, Mount is among several players expected to be sold by the London club in order to streamline their squad and generate funds following significant spending in recent transfer windows.
While personal terms with Manchester United have been agreed upon, the two clubs are yet to reach an agreement regarding the transfer fee, leaving the potential move still uncertain.
Chelsea endured a disappointing season in the Premier League, finishing 12th and failing to secure a spot in European football for the upcoming campaign. The appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as manager is part of their efforts to restore the club to its former glory.
Mount, who has been sidelined due to injury and consequently excluded from the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia, is currently enjoying some time off before returning for pre-season training with his future club.
In a surprising turn of events, Mount was spotted at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain, attending the Spanish Grand Prix, as a guest of the Red Bull team, seen in their garage ahead of the qualifying session on Saturday.
Red Bull currently holds top sport in the Constructors’ Championship, thanks to their formidable car, which has provided them with a strong chance of retaining their title in the early stages of the season.
Additionally, Max Verstappen leads the Drivers’ Standings, as he aims to secure his third consecutive world title.
