Details on Onana to Manchester United

Onana has just completed his move to Manchester United for a reported fee of around €51 million (£43.9m) with €4m in add ons according to @lauriewhitwell via Twitter. He has completed personal terms with a set contract to the year 2028, with apparently an option for an additional year. 

The 27 year old goalkeeper is one of a kind, people have argued he is the best ball playing goalkeeper in the world and will transform Eric Ten Hag’s team into a new level of modern football. Needless to say how familiar the Dutch manager is with Onana already, with both of their time at Ajax having major effects on Onana’s development and skill, but unfortunately coming to a brief halt as the keeper was hit with a doping ban which kept him out of a action for a few years. 

With the confirmed news of Premier League great David De Gea leaving the club being announced a week ago, it was time for Manchester United to act fast and proactive in this window. Something that they have lacked in recent years might I add. 

Following on from this, Andre Onana is absolutely brilliant at breaking the first line of press and is capable of distributing to either flanks. Extremely good signing for The Red Devils. Not forgetting his amazing shot stopping which was shown in the recent Champions League campaign with Inter Milan. 

Now the deal for Onana is officially done and dusted, we expect United to now seek out a new striker. Atlanta forward Rasmus Hojlund is United’s top target but the Italian club have rejected all offers so far.

We'll keep you posted.
