Chelsea no.1 target favours a move to Manchester United this summer

Chelsea will face competition from Manchester United for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer as both sides look to strengthen between the posts ahead of the new season.

Onana impressed for the Nerazzuri in Istanbul even as his side lost 1-0 to Manchester City, with his distribution drawing rave reviews from all corners including opposition boss Pep Guardiola.

Though the Cameroon goalkeeper admitted after the game that while he was happy with the Italian side, he also suggested a move could well happen this summer.

“I’m so, so happy at Inter”, he explained.

“At this professional level you never know what happens.

“I’m available for Inter, they decide and I will accept what they want. I’m happy at Inter”.

Though Chelsea are thought to have shown the most interest in the Cameroon star thus far, the Guardian report that should it come to a straight shoot-out between the two sides, Onana would prefer a move to Old Trafford where he would be reunited with Erik ten Hag.

The Red Devils can also offer Champions League football, which would be significantly better than the non-European football Chelsea could offer next season, though as it stands the Blues are thought to be able to put together a package more likely to tempt Inter into selling their star.

They have held long discussions with the Nerazzurri in recent days with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kalidou Koulibaly and Trevoh Chalobah all having been floated as potential makeweights in any deal for Onana.
