Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag will personally contact Inter Milan goalkeeper André Onana to convince him of joining him at Old Trafford.

The two men worked side-by-side at Ajax. It was the Dutch manager who helped the Cameroonian make a name for himself on the big stage.

Last season, the two parted ways with the coach taking over at Man United and the custodian joining Inter Milan. Both did fairly well in their new environments.

With David De Gea on the cusp of ending his lengthy spell with the Red Devils, the club is desperate to sign a new top-notch goalkeeper.

So with ten Hag at the helm, Onana became the natural candidate, especially following a fabulous campaign at the Giuseppe Meazza.

According to Sky Sports News via FcInterNews, the coach will personally contact his old pupil. He’s hoping that his good rapport with the player helps in luring him towards the English shores.

The Cameroon international will surely command a large transfer fee. The Nerazzurri won’t part ways with the reliable custodian unless they receive a truly satisfying offer.

As we reported earlier today, Inter could replace Onana with Shakhtar Donetsk goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin.

This move could also culminate in a contract renewal for aging captain Samir Handanovic.

The Slovenian could eventually remain at the club to serve as a mentor for the young goalkeeper.
