Man United make £34m offer for Inter Milan goalie Andre Onana

Manchester United have made a verbal proposal of £34million plus add ons for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Erik ten Hag is eager to get his desired number one in before the start of pre season and talks are now underway with Onana keen to move. Although, they don’t anticipate it being a quick process.

United have not yet made their offer in writing as they assess the Italian club’s demands but the opening gambit is understood to consist of £34m plus a further £5m in add ons.

United have been looking at cheaper alternatives including the likes of Feyenoord’s Justin Bijlow and Kevin Trapp at Frankfurt, but Onana is Ten Hag’s preference having worked with him at Ajax.

Manchester United’s goalkeeping situation is up in the air after long-term No 1 David de Gea was allowed to let his contract run down and expire.

He had been in talks over an extension on lower than his previous £375,000-per-week wages but, though an agreement at one stage appeared close, it ultimately remained unsigned and the Spaniard is currently a free agent.

A reviving of those talks has not yet been ruled out depending on the progress United make elsewhere in their attempts to bring in a new goalkeeper.

Ten Hag is hoping for a reunion with his former Ajax goalkeeper Onana who is also keen on a move to Old Trafford this summer.
