Erik ten Hag has identified former Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana as a long-term replacement for David de Gea at Old Trafford. With De Gea just gone, Man Utd has more reason to push this deal.
Man United’s latest offer for the Cameroon international is said to be around 50 million euros. Inter want around 60 million euros for their No. 1 goalkeeper.
However, reports suggest a deal is possible at 55 million euros. With Onana personally, this goalkeeper soon reached a personal agreement with the Red Devils.
Journalist Alfredo Pedulla confirmed Onana agreed to sign a five-year contract. At Old Trafford, Cameroon goalkeeper earns a salary of 6.5 million euros a season, tequivalent to £125,000 per week.
Notably, this income is significantly higher than the 74,000 euros per week that Onana is receiving at Iner Milan. With Onana, Man Utd has a goalkeeper who knows how to handle the ball with his feet, bringing a different approach to the game than David de Gea.
Onana is a big upgrade in Man United’s wooden frame next season. Last season, he achieved a pass accuracy of 78% in all competitions with an average of more than 6 long balls per game.
