Manchester United are close to playing their first friendly game of the pre-season and Erik Ten Hag has already stepped up in his United project, with many details of the team to improve and to focus on. At the moment, the Dutchman counts on the only arrival of Mason Mount, and he is pushing the club to complete the next deals appearing in his wishlist.

In this sense, Manchester United are trying to advance in the negotiations for a striker and a goalkeeper to add to the current squad. In the case of the striker, United has already identified the Danish player Rasmus Hojlund as the preferred Ten Hag option, as the former Ajax coach is fascinated by his physical and football qualities in attack. Manchester United have already sent an offer of €35 million to Atalanta, which has been rejected.The Mancunian club continues talking with Atalanta to increase the amount and getting an agreement.

In a very different situation is the negotiation for a goalkeeper. Andre Onana , from Ajax is the goalkeeper for whom Manchester United is currently negotiating. The Cameroonian is a top target for Ten Hag and the club is strongly working on the transfer, with an agreement close to being sealed in the next few days. 

Ten Hag only has a name in his mind

In this sense, the last United offer to Inter Milan was €52 million, close to the €60 million asked by the Italian team, and the transfer has been reported to be completed in the next few hours. According to the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are not negotiating for any other 1st goalkeeper than Andre Onana at this stage, and despite having contacted several alternative candidates, nothing was advanced with them. Following Romano sources, Onana is the only name in mind for Erik Ten Hag and the deal is expected to be sealed next week.
