€55m deal: Man United sign Onana from Inter Milan

Published

on

Manchester United have officially announced the signing of goalkeeper Andre Onana on a permanent deal from Inter.

The 27-year-old has signed a five-year deal at Old Trafford, committing his future to United until the summer of 2028.

Onana joined on a free transfer last July following the expiry of his contract with Ajax, where he had played since 2016. Five of those years were spent playing under current United coach Erik ten Hag.

It is believed by multiple outlets that United will have paid Inter around €55m for Onana’s services, made up of €51m up front and €4m in achievable bonuses.

Over the course of the 2022-23 season, Onana made 41 appearances across all competitions for the Nerazzurri, including 24 in Serie A. He also made three appearances on Inter’s way to lifting the Coppa Italia.

Onana also made 13 appearances in a memorable Champions League campaign for Inter, which culminated in an appearance in the final for the first time since 2010, eventually losing out to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

In a statement released on United’s club website, Onana said: “To join Manchester United is an incredible honour and I have worked hard all my life to get to this moment, overcoming many obstacles along the way.

“Walking out at Old Trafford to defend our goal and contribute to the team will be another amazing experience. This is the start of a new journey for me, with new teammates, and new ambitions to fight for.

“Manchester United has a long history of incredible goalkeepers, and I will now give everything to create my own legacy in the coming years.

“I am excited by the opportunity to work again with Erik ten Hag, and I can’t wait to play my part in the success I know he is determined to deliver at this great football club.”

Onana, ten Hag and the United squad will fly out for a pre-season tour of the United States before getting their 2023-24 Premier League campaign underway with a visit from Wolves on August 14.

Transfer: Trabzonspor keen to extend Onuachu’s loan for another season

Trabzonspor want to take Southampton forward Paul Onuachu on loan for another season.

Onuachu joined the Turkish Super Lig side on a season-long loan last summer.

The Nigeria international has registered nine goals and three assists in 17 league appearances for Trabzonspor.

The Black Sea Storm are keen to sign the striker permanently but cannot meet up with Southampton’s €15 million valuation.

According to a report in Transfermarkt, Trabzonspor president, Ertugrul Dogan is pushing hard to have Onuachu at the club at least for another season.

A return to Southampton is highly unlikely for the lanky hitman, who struggled to establish himself during his six-month stay at the club.
