Manchester United have made a second formal offer of €50 million for Inter Milan’s Andre Onana, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
United opened their assault on the Cameroonian shot-stopper with a €45 million offer that was rejected by the Italian giants.
It was reported earlier today that an improved offer was in the pipeline, with both clubs wanting the issue resolved in time for pre-season.
And United have acted quickly, upping their bid to €45 million plus €5 million in bonuses, according to the reliable Romano.
The journalist believes that the Red Devils are now very close to a figure that would satisfy the Milan club, saying “Inter always asked for €60m package — but sources believe €55m could be the right number to make it happen.”
At 27, Onana is at the peak of his career and would be a superb replacement for David de Gea, who left the club when his contract expired on June 30th.
