The player in question? The recently acquired Mason Mount.
Manchester United began their summer spending by agreeing a deal to sign England midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea on a five-year contract for £55m, plus £5m in add-ons.
Mount joined United on the back of a rough 2022/23 season with Chelsea.
The Blues finished 12th in the Premier League and had three different managers across the campaign.
Mount, meanwhile, was far from his best and came in for heavy criticism from Chelsea fans.
However, Danny Murphy has urged Manchester United fans not to write Mount off just yet:
“It’s amazing how many people have already written him off,” Murphy told the Daily Mail.
“I speak to lots of people in football and they all have the same opinion: Mason Mount is a super player who has had one bad season – and that came in Chelsea’s most traumatic campaign in years.
“United fans will not realise what a player they have until they see him in action. He was player of the year for two seasons in a row at Chelsea in a team full of superstars. Every manager at the club played him.
“Those Chelsea fans who were happy to see him go and the United fans who were non-plussed by his arrival will be changing their opinion very quickly.”
