Manchester United has successfully reached an agreement with Inter Milan to secure the signing of goalkeeper Andre Onana. The talented Cameroonian goalkeeper has also come to terms on a personal level and is anticipated to ink a five-year contract at Old Trafford, with the option for another year.
The transfer deal for Onana is estimated to be worth around £43 million, which includes additional add-ons, as per Inter’s beliefs.
The announcement of the deal is scheduled for today, July 17, and the club is diligently working to process Onana’s visa to ensure he can join the rest of the squad on their US tour starting Wednesday. Manchester United fans might have the opportunity to witness Onana’s debut against Arsenal in New Jersey on Saturday, and subsequently, he will face Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund during the trip.
In connection with Onana’s arrival, reports suggest that goalkeeper Dean Henderson will be granted permission to make a permanent move to Nottingham Forest. Henderson had spent the previous season on loan at Forest and, despite his return to Carrington for the start of preseason training, he is expected to finalize a £20 million move to the City Ground.
Andre Onana, who had previously collaborated with Erik ten Hag at Ajax Amsterdam, will become Manchester United’s second summer signing following the addition of midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea. The talented goalkeeper’s arrival will fill the void left by the departure of David De Gea, who bid farewell to Old Trafford after an illustrious 12-year tenure with the club.
