Manchester United’s pursuit of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana is contingent on David de Gea departing on a free transfer, as per source.

De Gea has been Manchester United‘s starting goalkeeper for the past 12 seasons, and the Spaniard has agreed in principle to extend his contract.

He has informed United of his intention to return after his holidays, but according to The Athletic, no new deal has been agreed upon.

Manchester United are looking into a prospective deal for Andre Onana, although a transfer depends on De Gea leaving Old Trafford when his contract expires this month.

Reasons behind David de Gea contract delay at Manchester United

The team is now operating on a tight budget, with the primary goal of signing a center-forward and a midfielder during the transfer season.

David De Gea is more likely to get his contract extended

Last season, David De Gea kept an incredible 25 clean sheets in all competitions. After achieving 17 shutouts in 38 games, he was awarded Premier League Golden Glove winner.

Despite the positive statistics, the 32-year-old made four blunders that resulted in goals. He should have done more to prevent Manchester City from winning the FA Cup.

Ten Hag would desire a shot-stopper who is at ease with the ball at his feet and has outstanding distribution. Onana would be a great option for the number one position.

The 27-year-old has already given the go-ahead for a transfer, but it remains to be seen if United will have the resources to fork out the £70 million transfer price necessary to wrest him away.

According to us, there is a greater chance that Manchester United will extend De Gea’s contract. The “magnificent” star will probably accept a pay cut from his present weekly salary of £375,000.

This could cause Andre Onana‘s move to Old Trafford impossible. United may have to wait until next summer to bring in a new goalkeeper because of their tight budget.
