Former Manchester United player Paul Ince has weighed in on the club’s interest in Andre Onana.
The Cameroonian goalkeeper from Inter Milan is the club’s preferred replacement for David De Gea.
Onana, who previously worked for coach Erik Ten Hag at Ajax, is at ease with the ball at his feet.
Speaking about Onana, Ince told Betway:
“First and foremost, he’s a fantastic keeper. He’s young, he’s got loads of potential, he’s great with his feet.
“A lot depends on what the situation is with David De Gea. Obviously, his contract is finished and there’s ongoing talks. I presume that De Gea will be saying, ‘Listen, if I’m going to sign then I need to be the No. 1’.
“But if they’re going to cut his wages and he doesn’t agree to terms, I think Onana will be the next one to come in.
“The ball’s in De Gea’s court. He knows he’s going to have to take a reduction in his wages, and if he does that, I can see him back between the sticks come the start of the season.”
