Andre Onana CONFIRMS latest Man United report in now deleted Instagram post as deal moves closer



| Last Updated:



Andre Onana is closing in on a move to Manchester United and a reunion with his former manager Erik ten Hag.

The Inter Milan shot-stopper spent five years with Ten Hag at Ajax and was a key player for the Dutchman throughout his tenure.

Both player and manager moved onto pastures new last summer, with Ten Hag moving to Old Trafford whilst Onana signed for the Serie A outfit.

However, following David de Gea’s contract expiry, the United boss is now looking to bring Onana to the English club to be his new first-choice goalkeeper and a move is progressing quickly.

After having two bids for the Cameroon player rejected, with the latest being at a reported £43 million, the next steps are clear for The Reds. A third and final offer worth £47 million will seal a deal by the end of next week, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Further details were added by Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, who stated that Onana met with Manchester United representatives in Amsterdam on Friday. He added that Inter have both Yann Sommer and Anatoliy Trubin ready to sign as replacements.

This meeting described by Di Marzio was then essentially confirmed when Onana let things slip on his Instagram story, where he shared an image of the Johan Cruyff Arena with the caption, “Returning to what was my home is always special. It was an honour to defend it.”

The post was swiftly deleted by the shot-stopper, however, it seems like there is only a matter of time until a deal is made and he joins the Old Trafford club.

United will be aiming to complete the move in time for Onana to travel to the United States with the squad for their pre-season tour.
