It’s official – Inter Milan have completed the sale of goalkeeper Andre Onana to Premier League giants Man United.
The Red Devils confirm the 27-year-old’s arrival at Old Trafford after one season at Inter in an official announcement via the club’s website.
The transfer saga is over. Manchester United have gotten their man.
The Red Devils and the Nerazzurri have been locked in serious negotiations for the transfer Onana for the past couple of weeks.
Inter certainly did not want to let the 27-year-old former Ajax man go without a big fee in return. However, United have been adamant about snapping up Onana, and eventually made an offer the Nerazzurri were happy with.
All reports suggest that United have agreed to pay Inter a total of around €55 million for the Cameroonian.
That includes both a €50 million fee and also around €5 million in add-ons.
Inter Milan Sell André Onana After One Season To Man United
Onana joins his former Ajax coach Erik ten Hag at United.
The Dutch tactician reportedly had a big influence on the English club’s insistence on signing Onana. The 27-year-old will replace David de Gea after eleven years at the club for the Spaniard.
Onana made just 41 appearances at Inter last season, his solitary campaign in a Nerazzurri shirt.
However, the Cameroonian certainly had no lack of impact during those twelve months.
Initially beginning the campaign as second-choice to Inter captain Samir Handnaovic, Onana quickly cemented the first-choice spot for himself.
Onana’s displays were particularly outstanding in the Champions League. Some outstanding saves throughout the knockouts were crucial to Inter reaching the final.
Onana joins United on a five-year contract until the end of June 2028 with an option for a sixth year
Meanwhile, Inter are hoping to sign Yann Sommer as part of their plan to replace Onana.
The Nerazzurri are also looking to snap up Shakhtar Donetsk keeper Anatoliy Trubin, according to reports.
