Inter Milan will give the green light for Andre Onana’s transfer to Manchester United after they agreed to meet their demands, Gazzetta dello Sport report.
Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio travelled to London to negotiate with United yesterday, and it has proved effective in finalising an agreement for Onana.
The Nerazzurri initially set an asking price of €60 million for the Cameroonian star, but that figure has been lowered to €55m after regular discussions.
The fixed fee was a stumbling block towards the deal, but United have now agreed to pay the requested €50m to Inter with a further €5m through bonuses.
Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the ‘last ok’ from the Nerazzurri should arrive ‘today’.
Onana could be a Man Utd player this weekend
United manager Erik ten Hag recently urged the club’s hierarchy to complete the signing of Onana by Friday, and it appears they are on the verge of doing so.
Onana has already agreed personal terms over a five-year contract at United, and the transfer should progress quickly as soon as Inter give the green light.
The Cameroonian should be a fantastic acquisition for United. He is one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in world football with good mobility.
The 27-year-old completed 78 per cent of his passes last season with over six long balls. He was also effective in coming off his line to make high claims.
Overall, he should be an upgrade in United’s goal after David de Gea’s exit. Ten Hag will be hoping that the club complete the necessary formalities this weekend.
The Red Devils face Lyon in their next friendly in Edinburgh on Wednesday before they travel to the United States for games against Arsenal, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
The fans could get a glimpse of Onana against Les Gones if he pens his contract this weekend. Otherwise, he could make his non-competitive debut versus the Gunners on July 22.
