Man Utd have opened talks to sign £43million star in summer – Face competition

After 18 months of negotiations, Manchester United finally agreed a new deal with star goal keeper David De Gea in September.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are linked with a summer move for a Cameroonian shot stopper in the form of Andre Onana.

According to De Telegraaf, Man Utd, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain have made an attempt to sign the Ajax star by opening talks with his agent Albert Botines.

The Dutch source have mentioned that the French champions and the Premier League duo want to tempt the goalie to join next summer and it is stated that he could cost around (max) 50 million euros (£43million).

The 23-year-old African star had a fantastic campaign with the Dutch giants in the last campaign. He was a key member of Erik ten Hag’s squad that won the domestic double.

In the Eredivisie, Onana made 33 appearances, only conceded 27 goals and kept 16 clean sheets. On the other hand, in the Dutch Cup, he only conceded 1 goal and kept 3 clean sheets in 4 appearances.

This season, Onana has so far kept 5 clean sheets in 12 league outings and 2 clean sheets in 3 Champions League fixtures.

If United hold on to the likes of De Gea and Romero then they really do not need to sign another goal keeper. Man Utd’s Spanish superstar is a world class shot stopper and as long as he is at Old Trafford, I don’t think anyone can replace him in the starting XI.

In your view, should United splash the cash to sign Andre Onana in summer?


  1. Why?? Even if De Gea was to leave we have Romero, Henderson, Joel Periera, Grant, we are far from understrength in the keeper department. Would make much more sense both financially and squad wise to add a centre midfielder, a creative midfielder and a forward or an out and out right winger
