The negotiations between Chelsea and Manchester United about Mason Mount remain stalled as the Mancunian club has seen how its third bid for the international midfielder has been rejected. United made a bid of £55 million ($69.9m) plus add-ons on their last offer, which was knocked by Chelsea, after having already rejected two previous offers of £40m ($50.9m) and £50m ($63.6m).

Chelsea have made clear their desire to retain one of their most promising talents, Mason Mount, amid intense negotiations that have left Manchester United frustrated as they have been led to look for alternatives in the transfer market with several names in the Erik Ten Hag’s list to improve the team’s midfield and increase the depth squad for the next season.

According to British newspaper The Times, Red Devils will put all the meat on the grill for another prominent Premier League midfielder. Erik Ten Hag has set its sights on Moises Caicedo, a Brighton player who was also on Chelsea's target list. The Ecuadorian defensive midfielder has aroused the interest of the Mancunian team, who are already preparing to present an offer for Brighton's player.

How much money would United put for Caicedo?

Brighton have valued Caicedo at more than 100 million euros, a high figure that exceeds the almost £55 million that the Red Devils have offered Chelsea for Mason Mount. But on this occasion, those from Old Trafford consider that there are possibilities for Brighton to lower their financial claims regarding the departure of the Ecuadorian midfielder.
