André Onana has announced that he will be signing for Manchester United from Inter Milan to play under Erik ten Hag next season.
Onana travelled to Manchester yesterday evening and is due to undergo medical tests on Wednesday – although it is unlikely that he will travel with the squad to the US on Wednesday evening, he will likely join up with his new teammates in the coming days.
Onana has broken his silence on the move, confirming to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) that he will be signing for United this summer.
“Now I really want to start this new experience, exciting and with a coach who for me is a master,” he said.
“I will go to a great league and a great club, which has a huge history just like that of Inter: I will start from scratch and give everything every day to show the new fans who I am.
“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 United is irresistible,”
“All parties wanted this to happen. But what matters is that if I had stayed, I would have been happy because I never had any problems at Inter.”
Further to this, he was asked how he felt about Inter Milan’s Champions League final loss to Manchester City, where the Italian outfit were defeated by a narrow scoreline of 1-0.
“Pride and sadness,” he said on the result. “You don’t know how much I would have loved to bring the trophy to Milan, celebrate it with our people.
“We were close to touching it, we deserved it: we played against City head-on, only details were missing, but this is football… Personally, I hope to win the Champions League with United, but I also hope that Inter replay a final and win it.”
Onana will no doubt be able to enact his revenge on City now that he is a Premier League player for Manchester United.
