Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana has admitted that the opportunity to play in the Premier League and for Manchester United was irresistible, which is one of the reasons he left Inter Milan. The 27-year-old is expected to join Manchester United for a reported fee of £43.8 million plus add-ons. Onana previously worked with United manager Ten Hag during their time together at Ajax.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Onana stated, “The important thing is to be honest and always tell people the truth. I am a person who always wants new challenges. Playing in the Premier League and for a club like Man United is irresistible. All parties wanted this to happen.”
Despite his desire to join Manchester United, Onana also mentioned that he would have been equally happy if he had stayed at Inter Milan. He expressed that he had no problems at Inter and that something special had developed during his time in Milan.
