Man Utd may be about to help Arsenal fund their next summer signing as £50m transfer planned

Inter Milan are planning to use funds from the sale of Andre Onana to Manchester United to sign a player from Arsenal.

United are in advanced negotiations to sign Inter goalkeeper Onana, with the deal close to completion.

The Daily Mail claim United have agreed to pay a fee of around £43m for the Cameroon international, including add-ons.

Onana is expected to sign a five-year deal at Old Trafford.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims the deal is close and that Onana could join United on their pre-season tour of the United States, with the squad travelling there later this week.

"Andre 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," Romano tweeted on Sunday.

"Man Utd set to request VISA for Onana for USA trip. Ten Hag will have the new goalkeeper he wanted."

Inter plotting move for Balogun

Inter are already planning how to spend the funds from the sale of Onana and have set their sights on Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun.

The United States international impressed on loan at Reims last season, scoring 22 goals in 39 games.

But with Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order at Arsenal, Balogun could be sold this summer.

The London Evening Standard claim Inter have made Balogun their No 1 transfer target this summer.

There is a difference in valuation between the two clubs, with Inter unwilling to meet Arsenal’s £50m asking price for the striker.

However, it is claimed that the Italian club ‘could insert a buyback clause or offer a favourable percentage of any future sale to help drive down cost’.
