Man United want to close the Onana deal as Erik Ten Hag is pushing to make the move soon. The Nerazzurri are willing to make the deal happen, and Piero Ausilio will meet United representatives by Friday. United and Inter and United are still negotiating on the transfer fee, as the Nerazzurri will not entertain any offer below €50 million. Ten Hag wants to reunite with his former keeper soon, as he wants to implement his football philosophy properly from next season.
The Red Devils are pushing for Onana’s transfer as De Gea has fallen out of Ten Hag’s preference. The Spanish keeper is not up to the mark with his ball distribution. De Gea hinders United’s capability to play out from the back, as he struggles to make the right passes under pressure. Hence he is forced to go long which disrupts the build up. Meanwhile, Onana is one of the best keepers with the ball at his feet. He played a crucial role in helping Inter build up easily in UCL knockout games.
Man United want to close Onana transfer move by this week
Ten Hag wants to work with Onana in the pre-season, which will start in the first week of July. Hence, he wants to wrap up his move by this week to make him a part of the squad soon to get ready for a long season. Onana has the experience of playing under Ten Hag and knows his style of play. But the Cameroonian keeper will have to make a shift from Serie A to Premier League.
The Nerazzurri are looking for a more experienced keeper as a potential replacement for Onana. They recently lost Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli, who has joined Tottenham Hotspur. Giorgi Mamardashvili is another option from Valencia, but the Spanish club are demanding €30 million for the 22-year-old.
