Man Utd's top goalkeeper target Andre Onana wanted by Saudi Pro League side

Manchester United have got huge competition for their number one goalkeeper target Andre Onana, with a Saudi Pro League side interested in him.

As it is every year, it's another long summer of what seems like a million different transfer rumours at Old Trafford as Erik ten Hag tries to get the most out of his budget.

It is expected that their move for Mason Mount will be made official in the coming days after their £60 million bid was accepted, even if he'd have preferred to be going to Liverpool.

And they could even add another midfielder to their squad, with reports claiming that they're closing in on a deal for Fiorentina star Sofyan Amrabat.

Fans may start to question the need to spend so much of Ten Hag's transfer kitty on midfielders, with some extremely pressing issues at both ends of the pitch.

The team are desperate for a striker with none of last season's number nines living up to the standard, and Goncalo Ramos the latest player linked.

But a goalkeeper may be even more pressing after David de Gea failed to agree a new contract before his deal expired at the end of last week.

Inter Milan number one Andre Onana is reportedly the manager's preferred choice but they now have competition from the Saudi Pro League.

According to CBS, Cristiano Ronaldo's side Al Nassr want to bring the 27-year-old to the Middle East with David Ospina set to miss the start of the season through injury.

The league are determined to bring in the best talent available to them and if Onana is open to it then he'd certainly be one of the best keepers they could sign.

He played under Ten Hag at Ajax and the ability with the ball at his feet is a complete contradiction to De Gea and would fit in with how the manager wants his team to play.

United's now former goalkeeper could yet sign a new deal to stay at Old Trafford and Al Nassr are also interested in signing him, and is their second choice behind Onana.

The Premier League side have also had to work out their own backup options if they fail to sign the Cameroonian from Inter.

All the potential transfer activity is probably proving a very helpful tool for fans who are trying to keep their minds off the seemingly never ending takeover.
