Manchester United still eyeing Inter’s Andre Onana

Inter Milan custodian Andre Onana

Manchester United have upped their intention to sign Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana, a move that could see the Ivorian become one of United’s this season’s prime catch.

On the the other hand, and to the advantage of United, this year’s Champions League runners up have shown interest in selling their shots stopper, Onana.

United surely need a new goalkeeper next season, with Onana looking like he could be a significant upgrade on David de Gea, whose contract situation has yet to be resolved.
Though the goalkeeper is United’s main target, they hope to get the deal done for under £42million, which remains some way off Inter’s valuation.

However, the Serie A giants need to sell Onana – so that could work to the Red Devils’ advantage, and it seems the Carrington-based outfit will use that in their favour as they did when trying to strike a deal with Chelsea for Mount this summer.
“Manchester United are still pursuing Andre Onana, but at the time of writing (Tuesday morning) they have not tabled an official bid,” Jacobs explained.

“Inter are going to have to sell some stars, even with €18m incoming for Marcelo Brozovic, who was announced as a new Al-Nassr player yesterday.

“Manchester United want to do a deal for under £42m (€50m). Inter value Onana higher.

“Manchester United’s approach is fully in keeping with the club’s desire to get two players in early for around £100m, with Mason Mount having taken up £55m from that budget (and a potential £5m in add-ons in the future),”
