Mancheser United have increased the amount the club is prepared to pay for goalkeeper Andre Onana.
Gianluca di Marzio reports Manchester United have increased the offer for Andre Onana to 45 million Euros, a fee of £38.5 million.
The Italian journalist told Sky Italia, reported via FCInter1908: “United have reached 45 million only verbally, Inter are asking for 60, let’s see if the offer will go up again.”
Di Marzio’s website also carried the report of Manchester United’s willingness to increase the opening offer.
Onana talks ongoing
Manchester United have been holding negotiations with Inter Milan since last week.
United’s offer of £38.5 million is closer to Inter’s asking price of £42 million plus £10m in add-ons, equating to 60 million Euros.

David de Gea’s contract expired on June 30, and while United have not formally announced his departure, it is quite apparent the club are looking for a new number one.
Erik ten Hag has worked with Andre Onana previously and knows the attributes the Cameroon international can bring to the club.
United spent a month negotiating with Chelsea over Mason Mount, and last summer, talks with Ajax for Lisandro Martinez also dragged on for weeks.
There is a good chance United end up landing Onana, and slowly it appears the club are edging in the right direction to get the deal done.
