As reported by Corriere dello Sport, the transfer agreement for Onana is expected to take place in the next few hours.
“This is being addressed and will be announced within a few hours,” the outlet stated.
“The English club has a strict agreement in principle with the Cameroonian goalkeeper, on a five-year contract.”
He added, “Eric ten Hag's club is close to concluding an agreement with Inter Milan for a transfer fee of around 55 million euros and has a preliminary agreement with the goalkeeper himself.”
As for Gazzetta dello Sport (today's edition of the newspaper, p. 2) it also claims that “in a few hours there will be yes for 50 million euros plus bonuses”.
Another top-tier correspondent, Gianluca Di Marzio, said yesterday that it was “just a matter of time” before the deal reaches €55m.
This news will surely be a breath of fresh air for Man United fans.
The reason is that Inter Milan is rumored to clean goalkeepers, including second-division player Samir Handanovic.
This means Inter Nerazzurri will be looking for plenty of new goalkeepers.
Inter Milan has long been linked with a player of Indonesian origin, Emil Odero as a replacement for second-division goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
Given that Emil Audero still has a contract with Sampdoria until June 30, 2026.
It is likely that Emil will agree to the deal.
