Manchester United are on a pre-season tour of the United States, playing matches to help them get into a rhythm for the start of the Premier League which begins on 12 August, which is why this type of match has become so important and fans are keeping an eye on what might happen.

As we already know during the week, the Red Devils presented their second reinforcement of the summer, the long-awaited André Onana was finally signed after a long negotiation with Inter Milan; the player was able to present himself at the Carrington facilities for medical examinations, from there he had to take a flight to join the other team in New York, where his official presentation took place. 

During his time with the media, the Cameroonian goalkeeper felt very grateful for the opportunity to wear the colours of the Red Devils, he also added that he is happy to be reunited with Ten Hag who would have given him his first chance when they were both at Ajax; these statements certainly make all the fans excited and have great expectations to see him play. 

However, all the fans will have to wait to see the debut of André Onana in the preseason, because according to sources close to the coach, he would have said that the goalkeeper is not yet ready to play a game, so they would take it easy, hoping that in the next few games he can have a chance.


Tom Heaton as starting goalkeeper

Erik Ten Hag would have opted for the veteran goalkeeper of 37 years of age, to defend the goal in the Manchester United match against Arsenal, Heaton has been receiving some opportunities during these games that could help him to earn at least the position of substitute goalkeeper, this because the coach would have planned to hire a second goalkeeper, so we will see if the performance of Tom Heaton, is adequate.
