Incoming Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino wants to hold on to the Three Lions star, on the other hand, Jurgen Klopp would like to have him at Anfield.
However, the Blues will not take part in any European competition next season and United only need a point tonight to send Liverpool to the Europa League.
Mason Mount set up the winning goal of the Champions League against Manchester City two years ago. So, it will not come as any surprise to see him opt for a club that can offer him CL football.
The 24-year-old, who will be out of contract next year, directly contributed in no fewer than 29 goals last season under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.
This season, he has been in and out of the squad due to injury concerns and made just a single league appearance since February.
The 36-capped international can effectively play in the No. 10 role, on the flanks and even in the central midfield. As per The Guardian, Erik ten Hag is huge fan of the versatile attacker and wants to hire his services this summer.
The British outlet have mentioned that Chelsea will ask for at least £60million for their star playmaker.
In your view, should Manchester United pay £60million to secure the signing of Mount?
