MANCHESTER UNITED, Liverpool and Manchester City have learned how much Chelsea will demand for Mason Mount.
SunSport revealed on Thursday that Erik ten Hag‘s men have joined the race to sign the England international, 24.
It comes amid a contract stand-off between Mount and the Blues.
His existing deal is set to expire at the end of the 2023/24 season and stalling negotiations are expected to leave the club with a decision to make.
Mount is understood to be after a significant pay rise from his current wages of around £80,000 per week.
And he is reluctant to sign a huge long-term deal like compatriot Reece James.
Chelsea‘s influx of players has also left Mount pushed down the pecking order.
He has started just one of their last four Premier League games.
And while it remains to be seen whether he will stay or go, rival English clubs have been put on alert by reports of a £50MILLION price tag.
Man Utd are understood to be in for Mount after recognising they are not at the front of the queue when it comes to the pursuit of Jude Bellingham.

Real Madrid and Liverpool are thought to be the frontrunners to sign the Borussia Dortmund midfielder.
Mount, who has contributed three goals and six assists this season, has emerged as an ideal fit for Ten Hag’s side.
Man Utd are targeting a number of high-profile players in the summer, the biggest of which is Tottenham talisman Harry Kane.
But in order to sign several new stars, Ten Hag is also required to offload unwanted individuals.
They are set to include captain Harry Maguire, forward Anthony Martial and midfielder Scott McTominay.
