Man United noticed Mount – Chelsea’s brightest player while the team was facing unprecedented sanctions from the English football federation on the 117th anniversary of its founding. The reason is said to be because billionaire Roman Abramovich had unnecessary involvement in the ongoing armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
The entire club including players, coaches are upset with this decision because they have no connection to the ongoing political issue between Russia and Ukraine.

These things made Chelsea nervous and soon after the ownership transfer was complete, Chelsea extended the contract of its number 1 player – Mason Mount before MU acted.
