Manchester United have submitted a bid to Ajax for the transfer of Andre Onana as a replacement for David De Gea, according to the latest reports.
Manchester United are entering a summer of rebuild and David De Gea could be a potential departure in the next few months.
The Spaniard has just one year left on his current contract and the 28-year-old is nowhere near to sign an extension. Why, you ask?
The simple fact that Alexis Sanchez earns close to half a million Pounds in the weekly wages (considering all the bonuses) has changed the dynamics of the Manchester United’s locker room.
Ander Herrera left the Old Trafford to sign for PSG as he wanted a big pay raise citing the example of Sanchez and now David De Gea wants a new deal that would see him earn parity with the Chilean.
Ed Woodward has so far refused to budge and is unwilling to match the price asked by David De Gea.
But with just one year left on his contract, De Gea would be free to negotiate terms with other Clubs from January 2020 and could even leave for free in the next summer transfer window.
That’s why, Manchester United are already looking for the potential replacements of the Spaniard and have submitted a bid for Ajax’s Andre Onana.
The 23-year-old Cameroonian has established himself as a first choice Goalkeeper for Ajax with some impressive performances between the sticks. Ajax’s performance in the Champions League this season has only increased his value in the transfer market.
Currently valued at £35m, Ajax have rejected the first offer from Manchester United which was significantly lower than the price they are looking for.
Woodward is expected to come back with a better deal for Onana, although, we are also looking at Barcelona Star Jasper Cillesen as a potentially cheaper replacement for DDG.
Cillesen is available at £22m and would be interested to come to the Old Trafford after spending most of his time on the Barca bench.
So is it Onana or Cillesen? Who would you rather sign as a replacement for David De Gea? Or would you rather give the Spaniard the money he desires and get it over with?
