Premier League side Man Utd will make an official offer for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana by Friday, according to reports in Italy.

The Red Devils could be set to lose David de Gea this summer with his contract running out at the end of this month and no sign that he will definitely sign a new deal.

There was positivity surrounding talks towards the end of the season with an agreement believed to be imminent – but recent reports have claimed that negotiations have now broken down.

Man Utd were already planning on bringing in a new goalkeeper as competition for De Gea but they might now be looking to replace the Spaniard permanently.

De Gea was included on the club’s released list earlier this month and now Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Man Utd will ‘present an official offer’ by ‘Friday or at the beginning of next week at the latest’ for Inter Milan’s Onana.

Ten Hag ‘wants Onana’ to move to Old Trafford with the Red Devils ‘ready to offer him more than double’ his current €3m-a-year wages during negotiations.

And the only ‘stumbling block’ left will be the transfer fee but Man Utd have the advantage that Chelsea ‘are not hot on Onana at the moment and will therefore have a clear road’ when they decide to bid.

Onana is ‘valued at between €50 and €60 million’ with a bid of around ’40 million euros plus bonuses’ expected from the Premier League side.

Sorting out the goalkeeping situation is now ‘considered a priority by Ten Hag’ and Man Utd ‘are in a hurry to know if David De Gea will agree to go to play in Saudi Arabia’.

The Man Utd boss ‘is not enthusiastic about him’ and ‘if Ten Hag wins, the agreement with the Spaniard will not be renewed’ this summer, despite a renewal offer remaining on the table.

Man Utd goalkeeping scout Tony Coton said yesterday that he’s “not privy” to whether De Gea will sign a new contract at the club or not.

“He’s [De Gea] been one of the most consistent goalkeepers around the world really, not just Europe and the Premier League,” Coton told Sky Sports. “What he’s done for the club – a great servant – and I don’t know at this moment in time where we stand with his contract.

“I don’t know whether he’s signing a new contract, I really don’t know, I’m not privy to that at the moment. We have been linked with a lot of goalkeepers. Speculation in the press, you can’t hide that being at Man United.

“We get linked with a lot of players that we don’t get. We get linked with players that we’re not even interested in; it just goes with the territory. We just have to watch this space to see what happens with David and where we go on the goalkeeping front.”
