Manchester United are keen on signing 27-year-old Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana during the summer transfer window.
Manchester United are looking to bring in a quality replacement for David de Gea if the Spaniard chooses to move on in the summer. And they have identified (h/t Fichajes) 27-year-old Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana as the ideal candidate.
Onana has been an important player for the Serie A club, and his performances have impressed Manchester United this season. It remains to be seen whether the two clubs can come to an agreement regarding the 27-year-old’s transfer at the end of the season.
David de Gea has been a key player for Manchester United over the years, helping them win multiple trophies. However, he will be a free agent in the summer, and the two parties have not been able to agree on a new deal yet.
There have been rumours that a new contract could be signed, and it remains to be seen how the situation develops. Even if the Spaniard decides to commit his long-term future to the club, Manchester United should look to bring in a quality goalkeeper at the end of the season.
Dean Henderson could look to leave the club in the summer in search of regular playing time, and the Red Devils cannot head into the new season with just one recognised goalkeeper at the club. Onana has worked with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag during that time together at Ajax.
So the opportunity to reunite with the Dutch manager could be an exciting proposition for the 27-year-old goalkeeper. Manchester United certainly have the financial means to tempt Inter Milan and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds.
A move to the Premier League would be an exciting new challenge in the goalkeeper’s career and he would get to test himself at a higher level. He has been linked with clubs like Tottenham as well. If Manchester United can promise him regular team time, there is no reason why he would turn down a move to Old Trafford. The Red Devils are expected to return to the Champions League next season and they will be an attractive destination for most players.
