Manchester United should beat Chelsea to the acquisition of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer.
David de Gea is the Red Devils’ starting goalkeeper at the moment, although his position in the starting lineup for the upcoming season is in doubt.
Although the Spanish goalkeeper is almost ready to sign a long-term contract with the team, manager Erik ten Hag has refused to guarantee him a spot in goal.
We believe that this summer, United could be looking to add a new shot-stopper and that they ought to think about signing Andre Onana, who is already a target for Chelsea.
Manchester United ought to sign Andre Onana ahead of Chelsea
Andre Onana had a terrific first season for Inter after joining them on a free transfer from Ajax last summer. In 43 games, he kept 20 clean sheets.
Additionally, he had great distribution and was able to work as a sweeper-keeper.
Last season, the 27-year-old averaged an outstanding 47 touches per Serie A game. He averaged 30 passes per game with an accuracy of around 80%.
The Nerazzurri presently value him at €60 million, and we think United ought to beat the Blues in the hunt due to a few advantages.
First of all, Onana and Erik Ten Hag got along well during their four years of working at Ajax.
The Cameroonian would find a reunion to be a tempting possibility. Football in the Champions League is yet another significant advantage the Red Devils have over the Blues.
In response to Saturday’s Champions League final defeat to Manchester City, Onana declared that “he will accept what Inter want.” In our view, Manchester United ought to make a move for his services.
