Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has received approval for a swap deal involving goalkeeper Andre Onana.
Inter, the current team of Onana, is resigned to losing him to Manchester United and has lined up the transfers of Yann Sommer from Bayern Munich and Anatolij Trubin.
Ten Hag is looking to revamp the goalkeeping department at United and is keen to sign two new goalkeepers this summer.
With Dean Henderson likely to join Nottingham Forest and David de Gea’s contract expired, there is a need for new additions.
United’s initial bid for Onana was rejected, but there is hope that a deal can be reached despite a discrepancy in valuations.
Both Inter and United are eager to conclude the deal before their respective training sessions begin.
Inter is interested in signing both Sommer and Trubin, while United is also on the lookout for another goalkeeper alongside Onana.
Onana, who previously played for Ajax, joined Inter last summer and has been a key player for the team.
United has already signed Mason Mount from Chelsea and is focused on strengthening their goalkeeping and striking positions.
Depending on their financial situation, they will then target defensive and midfield positions.
