Manchester United Transfer news Now: Onana has been on United’s radar as a replacement for De Gea in the starting lineup as the Spaniard does not fit ten Hag’s system

In an amazing turn of events, Andre Onana, the outstanding goalkeeper from Inter Milan, is allegedly close to signing a contract with Manchester United. According to recent sources, the clubs’ discussions have advanced quickly, and a final deal is anticipated within the next two days.

After it was made public that Inter Milan’s sports director, Piero Ausilio, had a meeting with Red Devils director David Harrison to examine the transfer possibilities, the speculations surrounding Onana’s probable move to Manchester United gathered steam. Now, other reports from Gazzetta dello Sport indicate that Ausilio plans to speak with representatives from United and Onana in the upcoming 48 hours to finalize the agreement.

This development follows Manchester United’s protracted contract discussions with David de Gea, their incumbent goalkeeper. It is believed that United withdrew from a previously approved request for a large pay drop for the 32-year-old Spanish shot-stopper despite initial progress. After the contract negotiations stalled, the English club focused on hiring Onana, who has emerged as United boss Erik ten Hag’s rumored priority.

Onana’s services, though, won’t be inexpensive for Manchester United to secure. Inter Milan’s contract with the Cameroonian international expires in 2027, hinting that the Italian club will want a sizeable transfer price. According to reports, the cost may reach €50 million (£43 million/$55 million). Despite the financial repercussions, Manchester United is intent to upgrade its goalkeeping staff and sees Onana as a promising long-term investment. According to rumours from Italy, Onana may join Manchester United as soon as this Friday if the transaction goes through as expected.
