Man Utd make £46.5m bid to sign Everton midfielder

Manchester United have made an offer to sign Everton midfielder Amadou Onana this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo (page 3).

The Red Devils are in the market for a new defensive midfielder and have recently been linked with West Ham United’s Edson Alvarez.

Alvarez had a brilliant debut season for the Hammers after his move from Ajax, but the hamstring injury he suffered last night could hamper United’s plans.

United have reportedly offered €55 million (£46.5m) up front with €5m (£4.2m) in add-ons to sign Onana.

Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest.

Onana would be a good signing for United

Casemiro had a difficult second year at the Red Devils. He suffered several injuries and struggled to find any form or consistency during the back end of last season.

The Brazilian was guilty of losing possession on 12 occasions per game. He was dribbled past more than two times per game and was caught out of position many times.

United clearly need an upgrade on Casemiro who is past his prime. Onana could be the solution.

The Belgian won an impressive 66 percent of his duels last term and 74% of his aerial challenges. He won 2.4 tackles per outing with more than five ball recoveries.

The 22-year-old only lost possession on 6.8 occasions on average. He was also difficult to dribble past (0.7 per game). Onana would be a good successor to Casemiro.

The big question is whether United have made an offer or if the story is agent-driven. Onana is the most valuable player for his agency BTFM, who could be eyeing a good commission.
