MANCHESTER UNITED are preparing another bid for Chelsea star Mason Mount, according to reports.
The Red Devils' initial offer of £40million was rejected by the Blues.
They are demanding £70million for the England midfielder but United are confident they can reach an agreement, claims Fabrizio Romano.
Mount looks set to leave Chelsea this summer after failing to reach an agreement over a new contract.
The 24-year-old is entering the final year of his deal and his boyhood club risk losing him on a free in 12 months time.
He was seen looking emotional at the end of Chelsea's final game of last season, fuelling speculation he is set for a transfer.
