Manchester United would already have well defined who would be their next goalkeeper for next season, after much uncertainty Erik Ten Hag opted for the Inter Milan goalkeeper, André Onana to be his successor in goal, while David de Gea, will have to look for a new team.

It has been three weeks since David de Gea left the club, the Spanish goalkeeper sent a message through social networks saying goodbye to Manchester United, thanking the 12 years he spent at the club and the new challenges he would seek to have, this certainly came as a surprise to all fans, who, although we already knew how this story would end, we believed that there could be a different outcome, one that deserved the legend of the club. 

Now that everything has been decided and United have opted for André Onana as the replacement for the Spanish goalkeeper, we could begin to speculate some of the reasons why Ten Hag would have chosen Onana over De Gea; the first could have been age, as the Cameroonian goalkeeper is 5 years younger than the Spaniard. 

Besides that, one of the key reasons would have been the type of game that the Inter Milan goalkeeper plays, it has been said repeatedly the idea of the game plan that Ten Hag is looking for in his goalkeeper, the coach would seek to emulate what Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have done in their respective teams, which is that the goalkeeper plays well with his feet and has good control with the ball, something that David de Gea lacked. 

Andre Onana deal

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of André Onana, the Cameroonian goalkeeper met with the rest of the team in New York after passing his medical at Carrington, during the tour of the United States, where the club presented the goalkeeper as their second reinforcement of the season, the details of the transfer were released moments before the official announcement; the club would pay 60 million pounds for the signing and it would be said that Onana would earn between 8-10 million a year, which would represent a salary of 150,000-200,000 a week, far less than what De Gea is paid, which is also why he was let go.
