United keen on Onana

Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, is rumored to be a fan of Onana because they previously collaborated at Ajax. The goalkeeper is comfortable handling the ball at his feet and is capable of playing out from the back thanks to his distribution. The shot-stopper’s contract with the Nerazzurri runs through 2027, therefore the Serie A club will probably seek £70 million in transfer costs.

Additionally, if De Gea departs the team, United might make an all-out effort to sign Onana. While the Tricky Trees are awaiting his arrival to make a formal bid, if he stays Dean Henderson may be transferred to Nottingham Forest.

Then, United would like to acquire a back-up goalkeeper, and Burnley and Brighton have both expressed interest in Bart Verbruggen of Anderlecht. Tom Heaton’s contract has already been extended by one year by United, which shows a clear lack of confidence in the goalkeeping situation.

As the Blues are prepared to spend big money to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga, United should expect fierce competition from Chelsea for Onana. Ten Hag has also asked for a top-notch forward and a midfielder, which might prevent them from spending a lot of money on Onana.
