Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana has come onto the radar of both Chelsea and Manchester United as they search for a potential new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInter1908, who report that both of the Blues and the Red Devils are thinking about a move for the 27-year-old Cameroonian international, who’s been impressing in the Champions League.
Onana only arrived at Inter from Ajax on a free transfer last window, but the 27-year-old has wasted little time in establishing his starting spot for the Nerazzurri.
Whilst the keeper has shone in Serie A, it has really been in the Champions League that his heroics have caught the eye.
Onana is statistically the keeper with the best save percentage in the competition this season (84.8% so far), with his saves vital to the fact that the team have yet to concede a single goal in the knockout rounds.
These clean sheets and vital saves have highlighted how important the Cameroonian now is to Inter, and why he was brought in to replace captain Samir Handanovic in goal in the long term.
Accordingly, the Gazzetta notes, the Nerazzurri would not be inclined to lose hold of Onana just twelve months after his arrival last summer.
However, the fact remains that Inter’s financial situation could well mean that they would feel that there is no choice but to listen to offers.
This would particularly be true given that the 27-year-old signed on a free transfer, and so any big cash offer from the Premier League would be a pure capital gain for the Nerazzurri.
Accordingly, Europe’s elite could feel that there is a chance to test Inter’s resolve with a bid for the former Ajax keeper.
The Gazzetta, accordingly, report that both of Chelsea and Man United are seriously thinking about making such an offer during the summer.
