Wall Mount for TV

I am trying to mount my 55" TV to the wall.
The center of the TV (in red) is in the center of a stud (in white)
All of the single stud mounted TV mounts have an offset when retracted. Between 2" and 3" offset. So when it is pushed back it is shifted to one side and not on center.
It is over a fireplace mantel so it needs to be on center as shown in the image.
I cannot find a TV mount that will span between 2 studs which is the 32" nor can I find a center "single stud TV mount" that will keep the TV on center when it is pushed back towards the wall.

Anyone have any thoughts on what I could do to mount this TV to the wall as shown in the drawing?
Just hoping there is some kind of mount out there that I am missing.

OK. After reading and searching and watching videos I have come up with a solution I am going to try.
I am going to buy a full motion TV mount with a 20” base.
Like [URL="https://www.amazon.com/Rocketfish-Full-Motion-RF-HTVMM170C-Non-Retail-Packaging/dp/B01NBVU71L"]
Lag bolt to the center stud and toggle bolt on the 4 corners.
I believe using the 2 lags in the center should support and the 4 toggle bolts in the drywall should stabilize it.
Sound feasible?

I have a wall mount that is on in stud from Kanto but I have it out 100% of the time. Another cheap and good place to check is Monoprice. They have a ton of models at really awesome prices.

I'm using this for my Sony 900F (55 lbs) with just 2 lag bolts into a stud in the center. No issues thus far.
