“He will perform just like Casemiro” Man United making big push to sign £80k per week player machine you need to imagine him & Bruno together

An update has been given about Manchester United’s pursuit of Chelsea star Mason Mount.

What has Mount and Manchester United changed recently?
Apparently “making a big push” for the England international, United boss Erik ten Hag, according to writer Alex Shaw on Twitter. Recent rumors claim that the Red Devils are willing to offer the 24-year-old £55 million.

The former head coach of Ajax, according to Jason Burt’s piece for the Daily Telegraph, is “confident” that he can persuade the 36-cap marvel to join him at Old Trafford this summer. This is due to the fact that the midfield guru’s current contract only has 12 months still to run and that his future in west London is uncertain.

The player, who was born in Portsmouth, is ‘leaning towards’ a move to the Theatre of Dreams right now, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic. Ten Hag is said to have been monitoring the player’s development ever since his loan season with Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem in 2017–18.

Where might Mount fit in at Manchester United?
Although Mount typically plays up as an offensive midfielder or on the flanks, Ten Hag is prioritizing the signing of a “dynamic number eight” this summer, according to Burt’s most recent report. Mount could easily fill this position.

The midfield “machine” has the defensive prowess and willing work ethic necessary to succeed in that deeper spot, as defined by journalist Nizaar Kinsella, as he ranks in the top 12% of players in his position in Europe’s top five leagues for tackles made.

But since the £80k per week employee ranks in the top 7% for progressive passes with an average of 5.93 per 90 over the past 365 days, his creative talent would be the main benefit of deploying him as a box-to-box replacement.

Despite suffering a miserable season at Stamford Bridge this year, with just three goals and two assists in the league, the sought-after dynamo had previously recorded double digits for each of those two categories in the top division in the 2021/22 season.

Bruno Fernandes, a player for Portugal who represented his country at the international level, may find his creative workload reduced by the ability to contribute in the final third. Fernandes concluded the season having produced 32 “big chances” in the league, the most of any player in the division.

The 28-year-old, who has assisted on 28 goals in 58 games in all competitions this season, is a great master at delivering precise, forward passes, just like Mount. According to FBref, the former Sporting CP player averages 7.04 progressive passes for every 90.

The Chelsea player appeared to be interested in the prospect of playing with United’s part-time captain next season, as seen by what he stated back in 2021:

“I really like Mason Mount – he’s been steady from the start of the season, but, if people watch numbers, he hasn’t had as many goals or assists as other players, but, for me, as a performance, he’s been really, really top,” the author stated.

Another indication of Mount’s skill is that Ten Hag believes the 5 foot 11 ace Fernandes and Mount would be an exciting duo.
