Onana and Mkhitaryan sign at Inter Milan, ex-Girondin Bellanova arrives

These two arrivals were expected, the two players having already passed their medical examination, but have not yet been formalized by Inter. Their contracts, on the other hand, have already been submitted to the League, as evidenced by the transfer table posted online on Friday by the body on its site on the first day of the opening of the summer transfer window in Italy.

Belgian Romelu Lukaku, on loan from Chelsea, and young Albanian midfielder Kristjan Asllani, on loan from Empoli, are the other two players already recruited by the Nerazzurri, who have been very active in recent weeks.

Bellanova to come?

André Onana, 26, announced since January, appears as the successor in the internal cage of the Slovenian goalkeeper and captain of Inter, Samir Handanovic, 37 years old.

The Cameroonian, who has signed up for five years, played little last season with Ajax, having only returned to the pitch at the end of 2021 after a nine-month suspension for doping. But he played as a holder of the African Cup of Nations in early 2022 with the Indomitable Lions, beaten in the semi-finals and finally third in the tournament.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 33, was a key part of José Mourinho’s Roma, winners of the new Europa League Conference.

According to the press, the ex-attacking midfielder of Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United and Arsenal, however, refused in early June the extension offer proposed by the Giallorossi (for one season and another optional) to prefer that of the Nerazzurri. , for a period of two years with a slightly higher annual salary (around 4.5 million euros per year).

In addition to the four reinforcements already finalized, Inter will soon welcome on loan the Italian right side Raoul Bellanova, 22, barely sold definitively by the Girondins de Bordeaux to Cagliari where he was loaned last year.
