Chelsea to sign ex-Man Utd player as Mason Mount’s replacement

Chelsea are considering Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira as a possible replacement for Mason Mount, according to reports.

Mount will have only one year remaining on his contract with Chelsea at the end of the campaign and the midfielder is yet to agree a new deal with the club.

The Blues may look to cash in on Mount this summer rather than see him leave on a free transfer next year, while a transfer could be on the cards as the midfielder has appointed a new agent.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Man City are all keeping tabs on Mount’s situation and are considering moves this summer transfer window

According to ESPN, Chelsea are already looking at potential replacements for Mount with Pereira among the names being considered by the club.

The report also claims that while Pereira is happy at Fulham, he would find it hard to reject a team who will be playing in Europe.

Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are also interested in signing Pereira, who joined Fulham in a £10m deal from United last summer.

The 27-year-old has played a major role in Fulham’s midfield this season, scoring two goals and providing six assists in the Premier League so far.

‘At United I had a lot of memories; good memories, bad memories,’ Pereira said in an interview with ESPN last week.

‘It’s been 10 years at the club. I arrived when I was 16 so, you know, a young boy. It was an amazing ride but I got to the stage where I thought maybe it was best not to stay.

‘I wanted to feel more loved and I wanted to play every game. What Fulham offered me and what [manager] Marco [Silva] offered me, it was the perfect opportunity.’
