‘Exceptional’ – What Pep Guardiola and other stars have said about Manchester United target Andre Onana

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.

As reported by Manchester Evening News Friday United have held positive talks with Inter in recent weeks and are keen to get a deal over the line sooner rather than later. The Cameroonian has been installed as the club’s first-choice target to replace David de Gea.

Onana worked with United manager Erik ten Hag at Ajax and the former is understood to be keen to be reunited with the Dutchman in M16, just a year after joining Inter. He excelled in his debut season in Italy, helping Inter win two trophies and reach the Champions League final.

The 27-year-old is known as one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in the world, meaning it is hardly surprising that Ten Hag intend to add him to their squad. The Dutchman wants to gradually transform United’s style of play and Onana would be key to making that happen, such is his ability in possession.
