Mason Mount proves there's no bad blood with Man Utd star after fans feared awkward reunion as he trains for first time | The Sun

MASON MOUNT proved there's no bad blood between him and his new team-mates as he trained as a Manchester United player for the first time yesterday.

Fans feared an awkward reunion for Mount after he clashed with Lisandro Martinez when the teams met in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge last season.

The pair tussled over the ball after Mount was penalised for fouling the Argentine.

Martinez then shoved Mount in his chest, sparking a furious reaction from the 24-year-old.

Mount then went head-to-head with Martinez before his England team-mate Luke Shaw pushed him away to defuse the situation.

But the pair were all-smiles as they joked about their past clash.

Martinez said as he embraced Mount: "Come my brother, before we fight each other – now we love eachother!

"Together now!"

Mount completed a £55million move to United this week after protracted negotiations between the Red Devils' and Mount's boyhood club, Chelsea.

The midfielder will wear the number seven shirt most recently worn by Ronaldo until he vacated the club in January.

Awarding Mount United's iconic number seven shirt caused controversy among fans online.

Also welcoming Mount to the club was Bruno Fernandes, who has a similarly awkward history with the former Chelsea player.


Fernandes, 28, posted two snaps on his Instagram story of him clashing with Mount alongside the caption "Why did you take so long to sign 😡"

He followed that up with "Welcome @masonmount 💪"

United are looking to follow up the signing of Mason Mount by securing two further targets in the coming weeks.

Reports suggest that they are closing in on the signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana as they seek to replace David De Gea between the sticks.

The club have also finally moved for long-term target Rasmus Hojlund and are preparing a £40m bid after their initial £30m offer was rejected.
