Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has reportedly undergone a medical at Manchester United ahead of a potential move to the club. The 25-year-old Cameroonian shot-stopper has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks, and it appears that the move could be edging closer to completion.

Onana has been a key player for Ajax over the last few seasons, helping the Dutch club to win four Eredivisie titles and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019. He has also been a regular for the Cameroon national team, making over 20 appearances since his debut in 2016.

Manchester United have been in the market for a new goalkeeper for some time, with David De Gea’s future at the club uncertain. Onana would be a strong addition to the team and would provide competition for De Gea and Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan at Sheffield United.

According to reports, Onana’s medical at Manchester United went well, and the club is now in negotiations with Ajax over a transfer fee. The Dutch club is said to be demanding around £25 million for the goalkeeper, which United may be willing to pay given their need for a top-class shot-stopper.

If the move does go through, Onana would become the latest in a long line of African goalkeepers to play in the Premier League. He would also be reunited with former Ajax teammate Donny van de Beek, who joined Manchester United last summer.

Onana’s potential move to Manchester United has been met with mixed reactions from fans and pundits. While some believe that he would be a solid addition to the team, others feel that United should be focusing on other areas of the squad, such as the defense and midfield.

Regardless of the opinions of others, it appears that Manchester United are keen to sign Onana and are willing to pay a significant fee to do so. If the transfer is completed, it will be interesting to see how Onana adapts to the Premier League and whether he can help United to challenge for major honors in the upcoming season.
