Man United will not give up on Mason Mount despite the Englishman’s poor first campaign at the club.

Manchester United, as a club, have struggled this season. The Red Devils have had off-field issues galore, a change in ownership and several on-field injuries. It has made Erik ten Hag’s job that little bit tougher.

The Dutch gaffer isn’t completely off the hook, though. His signings have been questionable. Antony for £80m looks like awful business. We haven’t seen Tyrell Malacia once this term, while Mason Mount was the marquee addition of the most recent summer transfer window. He’s barely played.

Signed from Chelsea, big things were expected of Mount. He’s had multiple longer term injuries which is no doubt massively frustrating for a player who just wants to showcase his talents.

United cannot afford to wait around for any one player in particular, though it does look like Mount will get at least another season to prove his worth.

That’s according to Dean Jones, while writing for GiveMeSport. He believes that United are ‘not expected’ to sell the player this summer despite his struggles this season.

Key figures behind the scenes are ‘confident’ that Mount will be able to turn it around at Old Trafford, after the £60m signing has barely been able to stay fit this time around.

Although Sir Jim Ratcliffe is looking to move on from some players in order to generate funds to bolster the transfer kitty, Mount is not one of the names set to depart.

Board members are sympathetic of the Englishman’s situation, while they’re not ready to take a significant transfer hit to let him leave after just one campaign. Mount is set to be offered more responsibility at the club next season, assuming he can stay fit.

For what it’s worth, I still think Mount is perfect for this system. His energy and work-rate are second to none, while he has the on-ball quality to hurt opposing defences with his passing and directness. All he needs is a good run of games and I reckon we’ll start to see his qualities.
