At this point, it’s no news that Manchester United is interested in Inter Milan goalkeeper André Onana and intends to make an official offer to buy him soon.
According to the Italian press, the price for the Nerazzurri player is likely to be about €60 million, however the Red Devils may try to spend less.
Former Valencia goalkeeper Santiago Canizares was interviewed today by Sport Italia (via Inter News) and was asked about the asking price for the Manchester United target.
The Spaniard thinks Onana is a tad pricey. One explanation for this is that Inter Milan paid no money to recruit him as a free agent from Ajax last summer.
“Selling Onana for 60 million euros would be an excellent transfer, especially given that he came to Inter on a free transfer.” “I believe it would be a high price for any goalkeeper other than Onana,” Canizares stated.
“André is a good goalkeeper who is doing well at Inter and did well this year in the Champions League.” But, when you look at these stats, I believe you can find other goalkeepers like him in the transfer market, such as Mamardashvili.”
According to the most recent Italian media reports on Onana, Manchester United is yet to make their first official proposal for the goalie.
The Red Devils’ interest is only guaranteed since club officials have apparently been in talks with Inter Milan about the transfer, but no offer has been made.
