EXCL: Ten Hag CRUCIAL to Mount deal as Pochettino wanted him to stay, Liverpool have TWO more midfielders on their list, Hojlund Man Utd latest, and clarification on surprise Rice rumours

My latest column, featuring the latest on Mason Mount, Declan Rice, Rasmus Hojlund, and more!

Ins and outs in Chelsea’s midfield

Mason Mount’s transfer to Manchester United is almost complete, it’s just matter of time for the announcement. His medical was good from what I heard, so we wait for the club now. Erik ten Hag has been crucial to this deal, but overall I’d say this was the perfect feeling: Mount wanted United and Ten Hag wanted a player with that kind of desire, apart of his great skills of course. So, it’s a perfect match. Ten Hag is sure that he’s the perfect midfielder for his tactical idea.

It’s also worth saying that Mauricio Pochettino wanted Mount to stay at Chelsea, but he wasn’t in an easy position – the problem is what happened way before: September, October, November… until February.
