Manchester United are set to complete a deal for Andre Onana after a fee was agreed between the two clubs.
He reported: “André Onana to Manchester United, it’s finally here we go! Clubs are closing in on the agreement then Onana will travel for medical tests and contract signing.
“Man Utd set to request VISA for Onana for USA trip. Ten Hag will have the new goalkeeper he wanted.”
Andre Onana paperwork issues
While Manchester United are keen to get Andre Onana on board with the squad for the pre-season tour, the club will also look to get him to Manchester as quickly as possible too.
According to Gianluca di Marzio, there may be a very minor complication to be negotiated first.
He reports: “There is no certainty about Onana’s trip to Manchester because the Cameroonian does not yet have a visa permit.

“Maybe he’ll stop off elsewhere first, then head to the UK as soon as he can.”
It’s unlikely of course that this will be breaking news to Manchester United at this late stage. The club will be well aware of the logistical issues involved to get him into Carrington as quickly as possible.
So we may have a few hours of delay, but Onana will surely be announced formally as a Manchester United player by midweek. Rest assured, Manchester United have a number one.
