Manchester United are increasingly concerned about “dangerous” professional autograph hunters after fans harassed Mason Mount over a signed shirt.

Images of the England international being pressured by several fans, who were eager for an autograph, appeared on TikTok on Friday.

Mount seemed uncomfortable as he politely asked fans to unfollow him as they have for three days in a row.

The 24-year-old could be heard saying: ‘Sorry guys. I haven’t sung in the last three days, so I don’t know why they follow me.

Sources close to United have condemned fans, stating that action will “definitely start to be taken” if similar incidents continue to occur.

A source said: ‘Unfortunately, this type of situation has become all too common. It’s the last thing Mason deserves after being so nice to everyone he’s met since he joined United.

“United players are regularly pressured by professional autograph hunters to sign large amounts of items which then sell for hundreds of pounds. It has become commonplace and a major problem in Carrington.

These organized groups will block players’ cars and harass them as they arrive and leave their workplace. It’s getting really dangerous and you have to worry that it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

“It also means that young fans, who just want to interact with their heroes, often miss out because players can’t stop to take photos with them without having to interact with groups. It’s a real frustration for everyone, security staff are in regular dialogue with players on how to stop the problem.

“They will definitely start taking action if it continues to persist.”

Mount moved to United earlier this month after several years at Chelsea in a £60m deal.

He made his first appearance in a United shirt on Wednesday, playing 45 minutes against Leeds in Norway in the Red Devils’ first pre-season friendly, and put in a solid performance in front of several thousand eager United fans.

Mount is expected to play a key role in United’s squad this season as they seek more trophies under Erik ten Hag after winning the Carabao Cup last season and losing in the FA Cup final.

“He will bring dynamism to our game and that was one of our conclusions last season,” Ten Hag told MUTV on Mount.
