Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign Mason Mount in a deal worth up to £60million, The Athletic reports.
United had a third bid worth £55m rejected last week but have now agreed to pay an initial fee of £55m plus £5m in difficult add-ons.
Mount has been given permission to undergo a medical and finalize personal terms, with the clubs set to put the finishing touches to paperwork.
According to the source, United had warned Chelsea that they would not go above their improved £55m offer and were considering alternatives, with the west London club making a counter-proposal of £58m plus £7m in add-ons.
But talks between the clubs appear to have finally yielded a positive conclusion for all parties.
