Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard has come out to say that he is in favour of Mason Mount’s move to Manchester United. He, however, admitted that he wanted the midfielder to stay at Chelsea, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, even if the bar is already high at MUFC with players like Bruno Fernandes, Rashford and Casemiro around, he expects Mount to fit right into the team.
Lampard added that Mount is definitely going to be a fantastic player for Manchester United.
His words, “I think it’s a great signing. It’s a complicated one and in the end, he’s got a year left on his contract [with Chelsea]. So in terms of what he’ll bring to Manchester United, it won’t just be what Mason brings, he will bring loads of talent, but he’s just going to go [up] and [raise] levels. Don’t get me wrong, the bar raise is already there with Bruno Fernandes, [Marcus] Rashford, Casemiro… he will absolutely fit in with it.”
“If you’re trying to build, a group mentality of a team, players who are just going to give everything with their talent, he fits it. I’ve seen alternative reaction to what, ‘why would you pay that for him?’, Mason Mount is going to be a fantastic player there, in my opinion.”
“I think probably Mason would have envisaged two years ago that he would stay at Chelsea for a lot of his career. I just think circumstances, his contract situation, I know he’s got a big love for Chelsea,” he added. “Also in the modern day, I think more than even in my day, players do move, and I don’t think the challenge of moving now it’s come to that, for Mason personally, it’s a good challenge for him, I would’ve liked to have seen him stay at Chelsea because I think he would’ve been central to it but it didn’t happen.”
