Inter Chief Wants Man Utd to Present Official Bid for Onana

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has urged Manchester United to submit an official bid for star goalkeeper Andre Onana. As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Marotta confirmed a genuine interest from the Red Devils in the Cameroonian, encouraging them to concretize their effort to take him to Old Trafford.

Onana’s future has been one of the hottest topics in the early days of the summer transfer window. The 27-year-old is Man Utd’s prime target to replace David de Gea, whose contract expired yesterday. Aware of the situation, Marotta knows the ex-Ajax man could soon be on his way to the Premier League.

Manchester United should submit an official bid for André Onana in some days. Then we will tell them our position and the player will do the same,” he said.

While Erik ten Hag plans to hold face-to-face discussions with the Spaniard to examine his prospects in Manchester, he’ll unlikely be United’s first-choice keeper next season. The Dutchman wants a modern-day stopper to take De Gea’s place between the sticks. 

Given Ten Hag’s idea of building from the back, having a goalkeeper well-versed in using his feet is essential. And Onana fits the bill. The Cameroonian has shown technical prowess since swapping Ajax for Inter last summer. On top of that, he can fill a sweeper-keeper role when needed. 

With that in mind, Onana looks closer to joining Man Utd than staying at Giuseppe Meazza. But Inter should at least make a substantial profit from his sale.
