Manchester United identifies £35m goalkeeper as David de Gea’s replacement

Latest reports claim that Manchester United have identified Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana as possible replacement for David de Gea.

De Gea has just one year remaining on his current contract and could soon depart from Old Trafford because of contract issues as well as lack of quality performances.

The Spain international, who has just completed his eighth season at United, is demanding a significant increase on his current deal but United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is not willing to match De Gea’s terms.

United have submitted a bid for Onana but Ajax, who value the Cameroon international at €40 million (£35m), have rejected the offer but negotiations are still in process.
