Inter and Manchester United Closing In on Onana Deal

André Onana is on the verge of leaving Inter to join Manchester United. The English side raised their previous bid, bringing it to €50M plus €5M add-ons. It’s a bit below the €60M request, but the two clubs should ultimately meet in the middle.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the agreement could be struck Friday. The parties are only a few million apart. The goalie has long come to terms with the Red Devils. He’ll more than double his wages and reunite with former Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag.

Once Onana moves to Manchester United, Inter will have the funds to improve their offer to acquire Romelu Lukaku. Their plans between the sticks haven’t changed. They intend to acquire Anatoliy Trubin and Yann Sommer. The latter has a €6M release clause in his contract. Instead, they’ll need to negotiate with Shakhtar Donetsk for the prodigy.

The Cameroonian is on the verge of leaving Milan after just one season. La Beneamata will turn a massive profit as he joined on a Bosman transfer.

Our Take on Onana, Inter, and Manchester United

The Nerazzurri drive a fairly hard bargain, but they are also pragmatic. It’s tough to part ways with a player who shined and still has untapped potential, but that’s the harsh reality for a team that has to self-finance through sales. The fee is more than adequate.
