(Watch Video) Mason Mount FINALLY reveals reason he left Chelsea

Mason Mount has revealed it was made clear to him several months ago that he did not have a future at Chelsea.

The England international completed a £55m plus add-ons move to Manchester United on Wednesday, putting pen to paper on a five-year deal.

The 24-year-old had been an integral cog at Stamford Bridge over the past few seasons, but struggled for consistency last term during what was a forgettable campaign for the Blues.

And in his first interview since completing his move to Old Trafford, Mount revealed he was left under no illusions that his future lay away from west London.

“Several months ago, it became clear I wasn’t in Chelsea’s plans going forward and once I knew United were involved my decision was made up,” he told MUTV.

“Massive club, huge iconic players that have played here and I wanted to be part of that from the beginning. Getting here early ready for pre-season to start was a main objective of mine as well.”

Mount was shown round United’s training facilities for the first time on Tuesday, introducing himself to everyone on campus, from the receptionists to the kitchen staff.

The midfielder admits he was blown away by the close-knit feeling created by all those at the club – a trait that resonates with him after revealing that he had been on a trip to Disneyland with his niece before heading back to get the deal done.
