Manchester United is reportedly furious with Chelsea for disclosing information about their unsuccessful $70 million (£55 million) offer for Mason Mount.
Manchester Evening News says that United are furious with Chelsea after learning that their failed £55 million deal for Mason Mount was leaked to the media over the weekend. The Red Devils feel that Chelsea’s actions are hurting the club.
Considering Mount’s current contract with Chelsea expires in just one year, it is unlikely that Manchester United will make another offer—this is their third in total—and will turn their attention to other prospects.

As the team gets ready to let go of Mount, it’s believed that United manager Erik ten Hag has put together a shortlist of players he wants. The players the United manager will concentrate on in the coming weeks are unknown at this time.
If United pursues other targets this summer, Mount’s future is still in doubt, and Chelsea will have a difficult time finding a buyer who will meet their asking price.
