Andre Onana expected to leave for Man Utd, Inter Milan seeks to replace him with Bayern GK Yann Sommer

With the transfer window approaching its midway stage, clubs are intensifying their efforts to secure their priority signings. Andre Onana looks all set for an Old Trafford reunion with his former Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag and this has made Inter Milan go in search of a new number 1. Among the various goalkeeping options being considered, the Champions League runners-up seem to have set their sights on Bayern Munich’s Yann Sommer.

Inter Milan is expecting an overhaul in the goalkeeping department following the departure of their club captain Samir Handanovic who has exited the club after a 11-year stint with the Nerazzurri and the Cameroon international is now set to join Manchester United.

Yann Sommer to Inter Milan confirmed?

In 2022, after an injury to their long-serving goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Bayern Munich signed the Swiss goalkeeper from their German rivals Borussia Monchengladbach for a reported fee of approximately $11 million.

During his short stint with the German champions, the 34-year-old goalkeeper played 25 matches, keeping 8 clean sheets. However, after just one season at the Allianz Arena, it appears that the Swiss goalkeeper has set his sights on replacing Andre Onana at Inter Milan’s San Siro.

Renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano reported Inter Milan’s genuine interest in the 34-year-old goalkeeper. In his tweet, he confirmed that the Italian club has reached an agreement with the Swiss goalkeeper on personal terms and is prepared to negotiate a transfer fee with the German champions. Inter are also ‘reportedly’ aiming to secure the signing of Ukrainian Anatoliy Trubin from Shakhtar Donetsk to replace their club captain, Samir Handanovic.

Is Andre Onana’s transfer to Man Utd completed?

After the departure of David de Gea from Old Trafford, Erik Ten Hag has made it a priority to sign the Cameroon international Andre Onana to strengthen the team’s goalkeeping department. David said his goodbyes to the club after a stint of 12 years as several reports suggested the Dutchman is keen to bring in a sweeper-keeper, who aligns better with his preferred style of play.

According to multiple sources, the final details of the transfer are being worked out, and Inter Milan and Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement for the goalkeeper’s transfer. The reported transfer fee stands at $56 million, with an additional $5 million in add-ons.

There is optimism among the involved parties that the multiple goalkeeping deals will be completed sooner rather than later. Fans can look forward to seeing Andre Onana in Manchester United colors and the Swiss goalkeeper playing at the San Siro.
