Manchester United midfielder Mason Mount, who has been under the microscope since his £55 million move from Chelsea, is yet to return from injury.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been heavily criticised already by some sections of the United fanbase for a perceived poor start.

The midfielder has started just two Premier League games, against Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur, with his injury preventing him from getting his feet firmly under the table at Old Trafford.

Darren Bent, former Aston Villa striker, has been speaking on TalkSport and has named his worst summer signing made by the 20 Premier League clubs.

Bent names Man Utd midfielder as worst signing

Perhaps surprisingly, Bent named the English midfielder as one of the worst signings made this summer despite Mason Mount featuring just twice for the Red Devils.

“He’s had no impact whatsoever and that started in pre-season,” Bent said. The English striker also named Kai Havertz as one of the worst signings of the summer.

Mount’s name being mentioned is perhaps very harsh on the midfielder who, as mentioned, has started just two Premier League games for the Red Devils.

Mason Mount will come good

Mason Mount had an open goal opportunity which he fluffed during the pre-season win over RC Lens at Old Trafford and you just get the feeling that he is perhaps trying too hard to impress out there.

He seems like he has not quite settled yet, amid the weight of the number seven shirt, and he may just need that game or that goal in a big match to turn the tide in his favour.

If the midfielder is back fit soon, United do have the rather big task of taking on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, and the Englishman could be an important asset against the German side who are managed by his former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
