Manchester United have threatened to take ‘forms of action’ against a journalist who published a report on Mason Mount this week.
Earlier this week, four different media outlets were banned from Ten Hag’s pre-match press conference for publishing reports on discontent in the United camp without providing the club with the right to reply to the stories.
The journalist wrote: “Sources at Manchester United suggest that Mason Mount has been leaking information to the media, aiming for positive coverage from journalists in return.”
Plateau has since deleted the post following contact from the official Manchester United X account, who contacted him and stated that the report was ‘completely false’ and ‘defamatory’, and that they would ‘consider other forms of action’ if not deleted.
As shared by Plateau on his page, United’s full message read: “Dear Francois, this tweet is completely false and defamatory. Please delete it immediately. From the Manchester United Communications Department.”
He then responded, saying: “Thank you for your response. I’m open to accurate information. If there are concerns about leaks, it’s important for transparency and responsible reporting. Can you provide more details or an official statement on recent information disclosures?”
United replied: “Your tweet about Mason Mount is wholly inaccurate and defamatory. If not deleted we will consider other forms of action.”
Mount joined the Old Trafford club from Chelsea in the summer transfer window and is currently unavailable due to injury.
