Andre Onana Next Club Odds: Betting suspended on Manchester United move

Manchester United appear to be closing in on Andre Onana, and we've suspended betting on the goalkeeper moving to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils drifted from 1/3 to 8/11 to sign Onana in the summer amid reported interest from Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr, but it appears Onana was always keen on a move to England. 

David de Gea's overdue exit from the club has finally been confirmed, though it's been evident for some time that United have needed a new goalkeeper.

There’s no questioning De Gea’s remarkable shot-stopping over the years with Manchester United, even if errors have increasingly crept into his game in recent seasons, but his all-round goalkeeping has seemingly regressed.

Right from the first game of the season under Erik ten Hag, the Spaniard harmlessly played a ball out of play 20 yards from his own goal line, lacking the proficiency to find a red shirt under pressure.

Despite all the noises Ten Hag made about supporting De Gea and wanting to keep him at Old Trafford, it’s been clear that United have needed a significant upgrade and the keeper was deemed surplus to requirements. 

The former Ajax manager worked with Onana at the Dutch giants for five years and a reunion is on the cards.

Onana has the potential to be an enormous difference-maker for Ten Hag. On so many occasions, United have been severely hampered by having a goalkeeper who was often glued to his line with sub-par distribution, and someone like Onana would have a huge impact, akin to that of Ederson at Manchester City or Alisson at Liverpool.

The Cameroon international is composed on the ball, strong in the air with excellent reflexes and has a good enough reading of the game to be an effective sweeper, even if it’s not a role he was often required last season at Inter.

With Mason Mount already confirmed and a goalkeeper on their way, United's summer is finally starting to take shape.

Market settled on the club that the player will be eligible to play for on 3rd September 2023. Loan deals count for this purpose, unless a player moves to a new club and is immediately loaned out, in which case we will settle on the club that has permanently signed the player.
