In less than a days time, a new era begins at Manchester United – with Andre Onana set to be announced as the new goalkeeper by the club.
Negotiations began swiftly between Inter Milan and the Red Devils, with back-and-forth going on for around a weeks time.
Eventually, the two clubs came to an agreement and now Onana has flown to England to make the deal official.
Onana signs Manchester United contract
As reported by The Athletic, Onana has officially put pen to paper and signed his Manchester United contract.
The contract is reported to be a five-year deal with the option of a further year, keeping him at the club until at least 2028.
The Cameroonian is now expected to travel to the USA on Thursday to meet up with the rest of the Red Devils who have been selected by ten Hag in his travelling squad.
MORE UNITED STORIES
Now all that’s left to do is for the club to announce his arrival. This is looking like it’s going to be imminent.
They also reported that the club will announce the signing in the next 24 hours. The article going live at 3 AM BST this morning. So not long now.
Massively exciting – the Reds have a new number one!
A new era begins at Manchester United
After twelve years with De Gea between the sticks, United will now finally see a new shot-stopper in goal at Old Trafford.
It really does mark the start of a new era, with a new style of football. So much was scrutinized about the ability of the Spaniard with his feet. This meant that United were really lagging behind the times of modern-day football.
Onana has bags of footballing ability, as well as being a phenomenal goalkeeper. This could redefine the way United play entirely.
This summer has gone swimmingly so fat. Let’s hope more are on the way!
