Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic has given his seal of approval to the club’s transfer business so far.
Former United centre-back Vidic says he is impressed with the moves, and the deal for Rasmus Hojlund has particularly caught his eye.
Vidic, who also played for Inter Milan, told club media: “I heard a lot of good things about him, because I played in Italy and I have a lot of friends there. He’s very fast, he’s very young and he has a good mentality, so he still has room to develop.”
Vidic also encouraged by Onana move
Vidic saw Andre Onana impress at Inter Milan in the 2022/23 season and feels the Cameroon international will be a strong addition.
Even though he played alongside David de Gea, Vidic respects manager Erik ten Hag’s decision to move on with his own man, who is younger and plays in a different style.
He explained: “I’m expecting him to be a good replacement for David. We know how David was important for the squad for many years, but I think Onana can bring something different and, as well, to be important for us in the years to come.

“He was in Inter, he has the experience of playing in a big team, and before [that] he was in Ajax, so all those teams have a winning mentality and they are challenging for the trophies.
“He’s ready to be part of the squad. And he’s ready to compete on a big level.”
Onana has made a strong start
Andre Onana made a strong start to his Manchester United career, keeping a clean sheet on his debut on Monday night.
It almost went wrong at the end, when there was a penalty review against him, but VAR ruled in United’s favour.
Manchester United fans voted Onana as man of the match, and to have the approval of supporters is what matters the most.
