Manchester United have agreed a move for Mason Mount and he will become the club’s first summer signing.

The Chelsea midfielder will join United for £55 million plus £5 million in add-ons, report The Athletic.

Mount would improve Manchester United’s midfield options, taking lightening the load on Christian Eriksen, who is 31.

Ahead of the England international’s move to Old Trafford, we took a look at the potential squad numbers he could take if his move is completed.

Squad numbers for Mason Mount

4: Normally reserved for a centre-back, it is now available after Phil Jones departure. But it has been occupied by a midfielder in the past, see Juan Sebastian Veron.

7: There is a big number to fill after Cristiano Ronaldo‘s departure. Taking the number seven shirt would bring pressure.

11: Currently assigned to Mason Greenwood, whose future at the club is unclear. If he is moved on, the shirt would become vacant.

15: The number 15 will become available once Marcel Sabitzer‘s loan ends. It was previously worn by Andreas Pereira.

19: Mason Mount’s current number at Chelsea. It makes a lot of sense for Raphael Varane to finally switch to the now vacant #4, and Mount to take 19.
