Manchester United are still waiting for their first summer signing as they continue their pursuit of Mason Mount, which has been ongoing.

So far, Chelsea have rejected three offers from United for their top midfield target, which included upfront fees and add-ons ranging from £40m to £55m.

Chelsea’s asking price for Mount is reportedly £65m, but United’s football director John Murtough is said to be unhappy with the way Chelsea have communicated United’s bids through their London-based correspondents.

Despite being linked with other options such as Declan Rice and Moises Caceido, United’s financial situation means that there is a specific bidding structure in place for potential deals, leaving Murtough’s hands tied.

Moises Caicedo, a player for Brighton, has expressed his interest in joining Manchester United amidst the club’s pursuit of a new midfielder.

United has been attempting to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea for several weeks, but the London club has rejected three bids, the most recent of which was valued at up to £55 million.

Despite Mount having only a year left on his contract, Chelsea is demanding £65 million. United is prepared to move on from Mount, and they have already created a shortlist of alternative targets, including Caicedo.

Manager Erik ten Hag is eager to quickly resolve the midfield issues and concentrate on other areas of the team.

Since the announcement of November’s sale, the board has not provided any official updates or given a timeline for when a decision will be made.

Some reports suggest that if a conclusion is not reached soon, the changeover process could extend into next season.

This uncertainty is not ideal for manager Erik ten Hag, who is attempting to build his squad while operating under a cloud of obscurity.

United is expected to release their finances for the three months up to March 31 on Tuesday. Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe are still waiting for a decision, with the former being “convinced” that his proposal is the best for the club’s long-term future.

In the meantime, Liberty Media’s CEO, who owns Formula 1, has hinted at the company’s interest in investing in the Premier League by stating that they have explored several possibilities.
