Manchester United have agreed a £47.2m (55m euros) deal for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana. The Old Trafford club will pay £43.8m up front for the Cameroon player, with an additional £3.4m in add-ons.
United hopes he will be able to join up with them on their forthcoming American tour, but first they must get the 27-year-old a visa.
Manager Erik ten Hag moved for the keeper at the end of the season after previously working with him at Ajax. He will join on a five-year contract, with an option for a sixth.
Ten Hag feels Onana can be a significant addition to United’s squad and his pursuit of a new goalkeeper after Spaniard David de Gea
Onana spent seven and a half years at Ajax before moving to Inter in July 2022 on a free transfer.
He kept eight clean sheets in 24 Serie A games as Inter finished third and no team scored past him in 13 of their matches in the Champions League last season – the most of any goalkeeper in the competition.
He played against Manchester City in the Champions League final in June as Inter lost 1-0.
Onana will be United’s second signing of the summer after the arrival of midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea for an initial £55m.
