Man United officials now move to sign £3.48m-a-year “superstar” who Ten Hag dropped in Cup final

Posted by

According to reports, Manchester United has made a formal offer for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

What is the most recent Onana transfer news from Man United?
With Dean Henderson anticipated to leave on a permanent basis, Tom Heaton’s contract set to expire, and Jack Butland only on loan from Crystal Palace, the Red Devils may need to add goalkeepers this summer.

Erik ten Hag will then have no senior options other than David de Gea, whose deal is currently set to expire in the summer.

Old Trafford officials reportedly close to a new contract with the 32-year-old, but it appears that another goalkeeper is on the club’s summer wishlist.

In the past 48 hours, Onana has received an update from Corriere dello Sport, according to Sport Witness. They assert that despite De Gea’s desire to remain at Old Trafford, Ten Hag is looking for a new goalkeeper and has told the team to pursue Onana.

Manchester United is reportedly leading the race for the goalkeeper, with Inter demanding at least €40 million for Onana’s services. This summer, Inter may need to make a significant sale, and in response to Ten Hag’s indications, United have already “moved in the most concrete way.”

Ten Hag and Onana are acquainted…
Onana, who earlier this year was referred to as a “superstar” by journalist Oma Akatugba, only recently signed a £3.48 million contract with Inter.

After moving to Serie A, the 27-year-old’s Transfermarkt valuation increased by €8 million to €20 million, suggesting that he may be restarting his career. The 32-game veteran of Cameroon’s national team will try to help Inter advance to the Champions League semifinals later this evening.

However, Ten Hag is well-acquainted with Onana from their time together at Ajax, so the Dutch coach is aware of what the goalkeeper might bring to Old Trafford to compete with De Gea. Onana has actually played for Ten Hag for more than half of his career, but the manager did once bench the goalkeeper for a cup final.

Although some at Old Trafford are worried that the Red Devils takeover saga will affect transfer business, it appears as though this could be one to keep an eye on. Ten Hag may be hoping that the off-field situation is resolved quickly because transfer chiefs appear to be working on signing Onana.
