Prior to moving to Manchester, Mount participated in nearly 200 games for Chelsea.
The manager of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, claims that Mason Mount will provide “dynamism” to the midfield.
The club’s preseason began with a 2-0 victory over Leeds United in Oslo, and the 24-year-old midfielder made an impression in his first 45 minutes with the team.
11 changes were made after the first half, including Mount, who cost £55 million to join from Chelsea.
According to one of our conclusions from last season, he would provide energy to our play, Ten Hag told MUTV.
His plan is to take the initiative. But he also aspires to completeness and multifunctionality.
“Attacking and defending are both necessary when you play in the midfield. In the midfield area, we must be more energetic.
He is a terrific player, therefore I have no doubt that he will help United succeed.
Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho were among the youthful players in Ten Hag’s starting XI, who also included Kobbie Mainoo and Omari Forson.
Following their relegation from the Championship last season, Leeds is getting ready to return there under the leadership of German manager Daniel Farke.
But after 67 minutes, Noam Emeran, a Frenchman, was introduced by 18-year-old Norwegian Isak Hansen-Aaroen, who then slotted the opening goal past Dani van den Heuvel.
Ten minutes before the end, Emeran switched roles and became Joe Hugill’s assister.
In the 10th minute, Mount created a significant opportunity when he crossed behind for Amad Diallo to set up Hannibal Mejbri, but the Tunisian was stopped by a deft save from Leeds goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson.
A little while later, the England midfielder was once more engaged, recovering the ball before trying a deft chip over Klaesson from 25 yards out that found the roof of the net.
Being on the field felt amazing, according to Mount. “Now that we get the opportunity to demonstrate that in games after having that time in practice and working so hard, it is wonderful.
We have been developing a number of various strategies,” he stated.
“I enjoyed my current role a lot. Being able to drop in and develop the play from a little deeper, but with the freedom to get forward, make runs into the box, and take part in more attacks.
I prefer to start the press with a threat to attack and my own rhythm in order to give the opposition something to consider.
Before traveling to the United States for matches against Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United will play a preseason match against Lyon on Wednesday in Edinburgh.
