Manchester United have announced the arrival of their second summer signing, with the signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana.
In a statement released on Thursday night, the club said: “Andre Onana has joined Manchester United on a contract running until June 2028, with the option of a further year, subject to international clearance.
“The Cameroonian goalkeeper has kept 104 clean sheets in 255 club appearances. He won three league titles and two KNVB Cups with Ajax before joining Inter Milan in 2022. Last season, he won the Coppa Italia and recorded the most clean sheets in the Champions League.”
Onana said he wants to create his own legacy at Old Trafford. “To join Manchester United is an incredible honour and I have worked hard all my life to get to this moment, overcoming many obstacles along the way,” said the goalkeeper. “Walking out at Old Trafford to defend our goal and contribute to the team will be another amazing experience. This is the start of a new journey for me, with new team-mates, and new ambitions to fight for.
“Manchester United has a long history of incredible goalkeepers, and I will now give everything to create my own legacy in the coming years. I am excited by the opportunity to work again with Erik ten Hag, and I can’t wait to play my part in the success I know he is determined to deliver at this great football club.”
Onana spent just a year at Inter Milan before moving to United. He previously played for Ajax under Ten Hag, with the Cameroon international spending six years at the Amsterdam club.
The 27-year-old will join up with the Red Devils on their tour of the USA and could be involved when the side face Arsenal in New Jersey on Saturday night.
