Tyson Fury has taken to social media to welcome Mason Mount to Manchester United.
Boxing’s WBC heavyweight world champion is a United fan and regularly posts about the club on his Instagram page.
On Wednesday, Mount was unveiled as a summer signing for the Red Devils from Chelsea.
The transfer fee is £55million due to the fact that the 24-year-old only had one year remaining on his Blues contract, though it could reach £60million with potential add-ons.
Mount has signed a five-year deal worth up to £300,000-a-week, a significant improvement on his previous £80,000-a-week wages at Chelsea.
The transfer already has Fury’s seal of approval.
The Gypsy King took to Instagram after the announcement and re-posted United’s behind the scenes footage of Mount trying on their new kit to his own Instagram story.
Fury captioned the clip: “Welcome @MasonMount.”
Mount himself said in United’s official announcement press release: “It’s never easy leaving the club where you grew up, but Manchester United will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career.
“Having competed against them, I know just how strong a squad it is that I’m joining, and I can’t wait to be part of this group’s drive to win major trophies.
“Everyone can see that the club has made big steps forward under Erik ten Hag.
“Having met with the manager and discussed his plans, I couldn’t be more excited for the seasons ahead, and am ready for the hard work expected here.
