Transfer: Man Utd to pay £50m for De Gea’s replacement

Manchester United have contacted Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana over a possible summer move.

The Red Devils are prepared to allow current no.1 David de Gea leave at the end of June.

De Gea’s 12-year stay at Old Trafford looks likely to end after he failed to agree a new contract.

The Spaniard could yet sign a new deal, but manager Erik ten Hag is already identifying targets to become his new first-choice goalkeeper.

Onana has emerged as an option after working with Ten Hag for the entirety of his four-and-a-half-year reign at Ajax. Comfortable with the ball at his feet and familiar with the Dutchman’s system, United are ready to green-light a move.

According to the Mail, Old Trafford chiefs have sounded out the 27-year-old but face Inter’s £50 million asking price.

Onana, who has only been with Inter for one season, made the most saves in the Champions League last season while also helping Inter win the Coppa Italia
