Manchester United to compete with Chelsea for Andre Onana

Manchester United are prepared to compete with Chelsea for the signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Erik ten Hag wants to sign a new goalkeeper this summer with uncertainty surrounding the future of David de Gea, who is out of contract.


The Spaniard has been expected to sign a new deal despite a lucrative proposal from Saudi Arabia, but his place as first-choice is not assured as United look to bring in a goalkeeper who is more comfortable in possession.

De Gea has been criticised for his distribution this season and a poor performance in the FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City has increased speculation surrounding potential replacements.

Onana is understood to be an option after an impressive season at Inter Milan and The Guardian are reporting that Ten Hag is keen on a reunion with a player he previously worked with at Ajax.

The Cameroon international starred as the Italian side reached the Champions League final last season and led the tournament for both saves and clean sheets.

Chelsea are also interested in a deal to sign the 27-year-old and held talks with Inter Milan this week. The west Londoners discussed a deal for Onana, alongside the Serie A side’s interest in Romelu Lukaku, Trevoh Chalobah and Kalidou Koulibaly.
