On the surface, a move for Mount does not make much sense given Bayern Munich’s depth at the position. However, it is rumored that manager Thomas Tuchel is a massive fan of his old charge and that he would like to reunite with the 24-year-old.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich has not made any contact with Mount or Chelsea as of yet. Romano, though, did not provide any insight on whether or not there might be future contact between the parties — especially now that Manchester United is losing patience with the process:
Understand Mason Mount’s side stance remains clear: no plans to sign new deal as things stand. Man United now or free agent in 2024 #MUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 25, 2023
Tuchel, big fan but NO bid/talks with Bayern as of now.
United £55m bid still valid; won’t wait forever.
Another factor in this rumored pursuit is whether or not Mount would even consider a move to Germany. So far this summer, both West Ham’s Declan Rice and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane have been rumored to prefer a stay in England than a lucrative transfer to Bayern Munich.
Will this be the third Lion (maybe fourth if you count Kyle Walker!) to pass up a chance for a roster spot in Bavaria — or will Bayern Munich stay out of the bidding altogether?
