With David de Gea‘s future uncertain, United see Onana as their primary target to fill the No.1 goalkeeper position.
Manager Erik ten Hag, who previously worked with Onana at Ajax, is eager for a reunion with the 27-year-old shot-stopper.
While the two clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee, reports suggest that Onana has already held talks with United officials regarding personal terms.
Onana recently posted a picture on Instagram, prompting speculation among Inter Milan fans that he may be hinting at an imminent move to Old Trafford.
The goalkeeper smiled and pointed to the sky in an image he shared on his Instagram Story.
As he went with the post with no subtitle, it is difficult to express out loud whatever the significance of the post was, regardless of whether some Entomb fans honestly think that it might have implied an exit from the San Siro is preparing.
Former Inter player Marcelo Brozovic had previously shared a similar photo on Instagram before his departure from the club. The Croatian has teamed up with former United striker Cristiano Ronaldo and former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina at Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr since leaving Inter.
Onana joined Inter last year and made a strong impression in his debut season, keeping 19 clean sheets and helping the team reach the Champions League final. If the deal goes through, he would provide United with a skilled goalkeeper known for his ability with his feet.
