Manchester United are set to step up their interest in Andre Onana in their search for a new number-one goalkeeper.
As reported yesterday, current first-choice shot-stopper David De Gea is set to become a free agent on Friday after the Red Devils took a last-minute contract offer for the Spaniard off the table.
Andre Onana wanted by Erik Ten Hag’s men
And the Inter Milan goal-tender is seen as Erik Ten Hag’s perfect candidate to be the new number one at Old Trafford due to his calmness on the ball and distribution skills which far exceed De Gea’s.
According to the Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter Milan chiefs want a deal with Onana to be finalized as quickly as possible in order to fund a potential deal for Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku in time for the beginning of pre-season.
The move seems to benefit all parties involved with United set to make a $55m offer for the Cameroonian goalkeeper this week according to the Italian news outlet.
