André Onana is set to finalise his move to Manchester United in the ‘next 24 hours’ as Erik ten Hag secures his next first-choice keeper.
It is said that the deal is still to be completely agreed, with the two clubs haggling over the exact nature of the add-ons, but transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has said the deal is 99.9% complete.
With the deal set to be finalised in the next 24 hours, according to talkSPORT, Onana is set to travel to England as soon as an agreement is reached, and in time to join Erik ten Hag’s squad for the US section of their pre-season tour.
One significant factor in the deal has been Ten Hag’s proactivity in convincing the player to join him once again, having already managed Onana at Ajax three seasons ago.
In the last few days, Ten Hag has been on the phone directly to the goalkeeper to assure him that there are no issues with his transfer and that it will be completed.
Manchester United are set to fly to the USA on Wednesday, after their second pre-season fixture of the summer again Lyon in Edinburgh, where they will face Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid, and Borrusia Dortmund.
Pre-season will give André Onana the perfect opportunity to gel with his teammates and integrate his style into the squad’s current football.
