Andre Onana has confirmed his move to Manchester United before the club in an emotional Instagram post as he bids farewell to Inter Milan.
The goalkeeper spent one season with the Italian club and is now moving onto pastures new at Old Trafford.
He will reunite with Erik ten Hag, who was his manager at Ajax for five years. The pair departed to Italy and Manchester respectively last summer.
Ten Hag will be delighted to welcome his former no.1 into the club. It has been widely reported that he wants a goalkeeper that is comfortable with the ball at their feet and that is why the Cameroon shot-stopper will replace the departed David de Gea.
However, without an official announcement from the club as of yet, Onana confirmed his move to the club in an Instagram message to the fans of Inter.
“I never imagined that a farewell would be so hard. A year ago I became a Nerazzurro, many people told me that this club and this city had something special. Now I can confirm it,” wrote Onana.
“In my first days as a Nerazzurro, I realised that this is a family and that being Interisti is a way of understanding life.
“I fell in love with San Siro, la Curva and the city. Now the circumstances are right for me to start a new journey in Manchester. I do it with great enthusiasm, but knowing that I will miss you. Eternal gratitude to all the Interisti. You make this club great.
“Maybe one day our paths will cross again, but now it’s time to face new challenges and cheer you on from afar. Players come and go, but the club always remains, and Inter is above everything and everyone.”
