The 24-year-old midfielder has been a long-term target for United, who have had three bids rejected by Chelsea so far.
The most recent offer was worth £55 million, but Chelsea have been holding out for closer to £75 million, despite the fact that Mount only has one year left on his contract.
However, it seems that Chelsea have now lowered their asking price to £65 million, indicating that they may be willing to negotiate a deal.
According to reports, there is “a sense” that a deal can be agreed between the two clubs, with both United and Chelsea optimistic that a transfer can be finalised.
Mount has emerged as one of the most promising young talents in English football in recent years, and his performances for Chelsea have not gone unnoticed by United.
The versatile midfielder can play in a number of positions, including central midfield, attacking midfield, and on the wing, making him an attractive prospect for any club.
Despite the high price tag, United are keen to sign Mount this summer, rather than waiting until next year when they can sign him for free.
The Reds are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season, and Mount would be a valuable addition to their midfield.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are keen to keep hold of Mount, but they may be willing to sell if the price is right.
The London club have already made a number of high-profile signings this summer, including Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Bettinelli, and they may need to sell players in order to balance the books.
Mount will return to Chelsea’s training ground on Monday for pre-season duty, but it remains to be seen whether he will still be a Chelsea player by the end of the summer transfer window.
United and Chelsea fans will no doubt be following the negotiations closely, as the outcome could have a big impact on both clubs’ fortunes next season.
