Man Utd 'edging closer' to Onana deal


Share post:

Manchester United are edging closer to an agreement for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana after more talks between the clubs, Sky Sports News has been told.

It is thought discussions over a compromise on the fee have been very positive after Inter were unwilling to budge on their £51m (€60m) asking price.

Personal terms are not expected to be a problem and there remains a willingness from all parties to get the move done after United’s opening bid of £38.5m (€45m) was rejected.

Sources close to the player believe there is a desire from all parties to reach a resolution before Onana is due to report for Inter’s pre-season on July 13.

Onana has made clear his intention to move to Old Trafford and reunite with his former Ajax manager, Erik ten Hag, who is driving the move for the 27-year-old.

United continue to explore the signing of Japan ‘keeper Zion Suzuki from Urawa Red Diamonds after David De Gea failed to agree terms on a new contract and announced he is leaving the club.

Maguire set for talks with Ten Hag

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire will have talks about where he fits into Ten Hag’s plans when he returns for pre-season.

Maguire, 30, joined United for £80m in 2019 – a world-record fee for a defender – but started only 16 games last season. The centre-back has two years remaining on his contract.

United are looking to generate funds by selling players this summer. Midfielder Fred has entered the final year of his contract and is attracting interest from Fulham.

The club will look to go into the market in those positions if there are departures, with Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat is one of a number of midfielders United continue to look at.

United also exploring the possibility of Amad Diallo being part of the deal – possibly on loan – however, it’s thought Ten Hag wants to see him in pre-season before any decision is made.
