Inter Track New Heir for Manchester United-Linked Onana

Inter are making preparations in the event Manchester United table a sizeable offer for André Onana, which is likely, and have started pursuing Shakhtar Donetsk’s Anatoliy Trubin. The Nerazzurri had earmarked Guglielmo Vicario, but Tottenham beat them to the punch.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, their scouts compiled rave reviews of the Ukrainian goalie. He has become a very concrete option should they need a purchase in the role. They’ll try to acquire a young specialist before turning to veterans that would be easier to sign.

Trubin entices Inter because he already has significant experience despite his age. He has 94 appearances with Shakhtar Donetsk and 7 caps with his national team under his belt. He played in Europe in the last two seasons and faced the Nerazzurri in the Champions League’s group stage in 2021.

The contract of the 21-year-old expires in 2024, and he doesn’t intend to extend it. He’s ready to jump to a top-four league. According to Tuttomercatoweb, his agent agreed on a €10/15M valuation with his team after the January window. However, it could balloon if Premier League sides start bidding.

Our Take on Inter and Trubin

It’d be a much more palatable outcome than bringing in a veteran on his last legs, albeit reliable. The only downside would be his lack of Serie A experience, but there aren’t many sound options in that regard. As is the case for all the prospective purchases of La Beneamata, it will come down to how large the fee is and timing, as they need to sell first.
