Since Manchester United's non-renewal of David de Gea, there has been talk of a host of potential goalkeepers that Ten Hag has had his eye on, but there is no doubt that Andre Onana would always have been the manager's main target as he looks to have him at all costs to reinforce the goalkeeping.

The last few weeks have been full of rumours, Manchester United have had a lot of movement with the arrival of Mason Mount at the club, so all eyes are focused on what the Dutch manager will do, who has openly stated that the British midfielder would not be his only star signing this transfer window. 

For that reason, the arrival of the Inter Milan goalkeeper is looking closer and closer, as United have already had advanced talks for the player, who has also shown his interest in leaving the Italian team and joining Ten Hag's squad; this brings with it the possibility that David de Gea will no longer be renewed and will have to look for another team.

One of the main reasons why Ten Hag opted for Onana, above the other options, would be because the Cameroonian goalkeeper is much more suited to the system of play that the coach is looking for, as his qualities with ball handling, his security and confidence are what he is looking for to replace De Gea, in addition to what it is said that he is looking to replicate what City and Liverpool have done in that position. 

United's multiple bids for Onana

During the last few days, the negotiations between Manchester United and Inter Milan have escalated, as the Red Devils had initially made a proposal for £40 million, however, as the Italian club would have seemed little due to the value of the goalkeeper, United had to restructure its offer and now put on the table a figure of around £52 million, plus a £5 million bonus, so United would once again spend more money on a player.
