Manchester United secure signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana

Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana is set to join Manchester United, reports Alfredo Pedulla.

Man United and Inter are closing in on the agreement and he will travel for his medical test and contract signing.

The 27-year-old will join the Old Trafford club on their pre-season tour of the United States, and the club will apply to process his visa in order for him to make the trip.

Fabrizio Romano also confirmed the update, and it is safe to say the Cameroonian is a new Red Devils player.

Man United parted company with David de Gea after both parties could not agree to a contract extension, and manager Erik ten Hag is finally getting a goalie fit for his playing pattern.

Onana is one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers on the planet, and he was even more comfortable in possession than Brazilian goalie Ederson in the Champions League final against Manchester City.

Inter wanted £51 million for the former Ajax star and rejected two earlier bids from Man United, but it appears their demands have been met.

It remains to be seen when an official announcement will be made but it could happen tomorrow or Tuesday.

Onana will become the club’s second signing of the summer transfer window following the earlier arrival of England international midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea for £55m.

The Red Devils will also look to sign a striker and Atalanta hitman Rasmus Hojlund is on their radar, but the Serie A club want £86m for the Denmark international, making a deal difficult.
