It took a few more days than anticipated, but André Onana is indeed headed to Manchester United. The two clubs ironed out all details Sunday night. A small final raise by the buyers did the trick, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.
The Nerazzurri won’t cash in as much as they hoped, €60M, but they’ll get more than €50M including add-ons. They’ll net a major profit considering they brought him in on a Bosman transfer from Ajax last summer.
Manchester United will settle the Onana fee through four annual installments. The goalkeeper will try to complete the process quickly to take off for the United States along with his new teammates Wednesday.
The Nerazzurri plot to sign Yann Sommer in short order to make up for the departure. They’ll pay his €6M release clause if they can’t concur on a lower sum with Bayern Munich. Instead, they’ll have to bargain with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign Anatolji Trubin, but they remain supremely confident, the publication adds.
Our Take on Manchester United and Onana
It’s a nice piece of business for both sides, even though La Beneamata wouldn’t have minded keeping ahold of him for a couple more seasons. It’s tough, both for the players and the sellers, to resist when a Premier League powerhouse knocks at the door.
