Manchester United Boosts Offer for Andre Onana to €50m

Manchester United has increased their offer for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana to €50 million, with growing optimism that a deal can be reached. United’s initial offer of €40 million was deemed insufficient by Inter, prompting an increase of €10 million to get closer to the Italian club’s valuation of €60 million. Both parties now believe that a compromise can be achieved, potentially allowing Onana to join Manchester United alongside Mason Mount.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is actively seeking a new goalkeeper due to uncertainties surrounding David de Gea’s future. Face-to-face discussions are planned with De Gea to address his contract situation, although the club understands that he may not want to be the second choice if Onana joins.

De Gea was absent from training on Thursday as non-international players returned for preseason. The 32-year-old is currently a free agent after his contract expired on June 30.

Ten Hag, who previously worked with Onana at Ajax, considers the Cameroon international his top goalkeeper target for this transfer window. However, Manchester United is hesitant to meet Inter’s valuation due to the need to allocate some of their summer budget towards signing a striker.

The club has moved away from pursuing Harry Kane due to Tottenham’s valuation exceeding £100 million. Instead, they have shifted their focus to Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta and Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Manchester United’s summer transfer budget has been limited by financial fair play concerns, with the aim of achieving a net spend between £100 million and £150 million. The signing of Mount from Chelsea already cost an initial £50 million, and the potential transfer of Onana from Inter could add another €50 million to the expenditure.
