Playing in Premier League and for a club like Manchester United is irresistible: Andre Onana confirms transfer

By India Today Sports Desk: Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana has confirmed his move to Manchester United, saying that a chance to play in the Premier League and with the Red Devils was irresistible.

Onana’s performance in the UEFA Champions League final against Manchester City caught the eye of many and United decided to make a move for the Cameroonian goalkeeper.

The Red Devils had let go of David de Gea earlier in the month after his contract ran down and were vying for the services of Onana, who had played under Erik ten Hag during his time at Ajax.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, Onana confirmed his move to United and said he is someone who wants new challenges.

“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, even if I had stayed, I would have been equally happy because I never had any problems at Inter. Indeed, a magic was born in Milan that is almost difficult to explain,” said Onana.

Onana said that Inter were close to winning the Champions League final but is now hoping to claim the trophy with United.

“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. All the fans deserve it, both those who came to Istanbul who made us play as if we were at home, and those who pushed and will continue to push from outside,” said Onana.

Onana also said he feels proud to be the next goalkeeper with United and continue the tradition of the likes of Peter Schmeichel, Edwin van Der Sar and De Gea at the club.

“Yes, being chosen to continue this tradition makes me proud and responsible: I want to win trophies with my new companions,” said Onana.
