Goalkeeper Andre Onana’s transfer to English record champions Manchester United is perfect. The 27-year-old Cameroonian signed a contract until 2028 with an option for a further year. He will “start a new adventure,” said the Inter Milan goalkeeper on Instagram and said goodbye to his Italian fans. According to the BBC, the Red Devils will transfer around 55 million euros including possible bonuses.
Team manager Erik ten Hag already knows Onana from times together at Ajax Amsterdam. Keeper David de Gea had recently rejected a new contract offer from United.
After seven and a half years, Onana switched from Ajax to Inter in the summer of 2022, with the Nerazzurri he was in the final of the Champions League – but lost 0-1 to Manchester City. Onana is the second new signing for the coming season after midfielder Mason Mount, who came from Chelsea for around 64 million euros.
Onana’s successor at Inter could be Yann Sommer from Bayern Munich. The Italians are said to be ready to activate the Swiss national goalkeeper’s release clause and pay a fee of eight million euros. However, the goalkeeper situation is complicated for the German record champions. According to coach Thomas Tuchel, Manuel Neuer (37) will at least miss the start of the season.
