Manchester United are in pole position to sign £50 million-rated Chelsea target Andre Onana, with Inter Milan open to selling.
According to Football Insider, Manchester United are in the driving seat to sign Andre Onana.
Erik ten hag reportedly wants a reunion with his former player as he looks to replace veteran David De Gea ahead of the new season.
About a year ago, not many major clubs went sniffing for Andre Onana, despite his availability on a free transfer.
His recently served doping ban might have something to do with depleted interest, but Inter Milan took full advantage and signed him on a free transfer.
A year later, Onana has steered Inter to the Champions League Final, and all of a sudden, there’s tremendous interest from Premier League sides.
Manchester United are now in pole position to sign the Cameroonian and ready to make a £50 million move for Chelsea target.
Manchester United held talks with Onana’s agent recently, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.
Manchester United are in the market to sign 4-5 top-level players for different positions.
They had earlier hoped to keep David De Gea, but the Spaniard increasingly seems likely to depart on a free transfer.
Onana, for his modern ways of goalkeeping, will come across as a vital target for Ten Hag. The Cameroonian epitomises the kind of goalkeeper the Manchester United boss wants and could prove a better fit than De Gea in this system.
