The story between David de Gea and Manchester United came to an end over the weekend, when the Spanish goalkeeper made a statement through social networks in which he said goodbye to the fans of his teammates and thanked them for 12 years at the club, even so, rumours continue to emerge of the reasons why the goalkeeper said goodbye forever. 

One of the first reasons that would have come out, had been for his salary situation, De Gea received a salary of 375,000 pounds a week, United as a condition for his renewal would have asked the goalkeeper to lower his salary, however, they could not reach an agreement and the player's contract would expire on July 1, so at that time he would become a free agent. 

Given that situation Erik Ten Hag, began to look for his replacement, the Inter Milan goalkeeper, André Onana would be the player of choice for the coach, who speculated that he wanted him before De Gea became a free agent, so United began to approach more and more to the Cameroonian goalkeeper to reach the point of offering around 50 million pounds for his signature. 

It will undoubtedly be a new era in goal for United as a legend like David de Gea bids farewell, but hopefully the arrival of Andre Onana will usher in a title-winning era for the club under Ten Hag.


Why did Ten Hag opt for André Onana?

As we already know the arrival of the Cameroonian goalkeeper is getting closer and closer, there is talk that in about 48 hours his transfer could be closed, however, many do not know why Ten Hag made the decision to let De Gea go; One of the reasons would have been because Onana would receive as salary only a one third of what the Spanish goalkeeper received, in addition to that, the tactical scheme that the coach has adapts much more to Onana because he has better ball handling with the I's which creates output from the bottom, unlike De Gea who had many problems with that.
