Inter Milan are expecting an improved offer from Man United for Andre Onana.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri already have a plan to reinvest a fee for the 27-year-old as they anticipate a sale isn’t far away.
So far, Manchester United still haven’t made an offer that satisfies Inter’s price tag for Onana.
The Red Devils have reportedly put €45 million on the plate, add-ons included. The Nerazzurri have made clear that they want €60 million.
However, Tuttosport report, Inter have also given United an idea of how high they’ll need to go.
The Premier League giants could soon offer €50 million plus add-ons. The more that United’s offer creeps up towards Inter’s valuation for Onana, the likelier a deal becomes.
And for their part, the Nerazzurri are expecting a new offer soon.
Inter believe that United are serious and that it’s only a matter of time before the English club make the decisive bid.
Inter Have Firm Plans If Man United Complete Deal For Andre Onana
If Inter do sell Onana to United, they have a clear idea of what they’ll do with the fee.
Getting in a big cash fee will be vital for a number of other incoming transfers. Accordingly, the Nerazzurri have several plans that they will set into motion quickly alongside a sale of the Cameroonian.
The first, naturally, would be signing a successor to Onana.
Shakhtar Donetsk’s Anatoliy Trubin, Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi, and Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili are all on Inter’s radar to take Onana’s place. Bayern Munich’s Yann Sommer would represent a more experienced profile.
Then, there’s striker Romelu Lukaku. Inter want to sign the Belgian right away, and a fee from Onana’s sale would provide them the financial wiggle room necessary to make an offer that would convince Chelsea.
Lastly, there’s the question of replacing defender Milan Skriniar, who’s joined Paris Saint-Germain.
