Man United keen on signing €35m-rated Cameroon international
Ajax shot-stopper Andre Onana has admitted that he would be open to a move to the Premier League at the end of the campaign despite speculation linking him to Red Devils and Spurs.
Cameroon international has emerged as one of the most highly-rated young shot-stoppers in Europe over the past couple of campaigns, impressing during Jews run to the Europa League final in 2017 and Champions League semi-final last campaign.
There were reports this week that Tottenham were considering a £35m move for Andre as they seek a long-term replacement for 32-year-old Hugo Lloris, while Man United are also believed to be monitoring developments.
Onana played for the Dutch club during their dramatic 4-4 draw against Chelsea at London on Tuesday, and although he stated afterwards that he is happy in Ajax, the Cameroonian goalkeeper acknowledged he’d move on eventually.
Hugo has been Spurs’ first-choice shot-stopper since 2012 when he joined the London club from Lyon, and while he has been a success in Tottenham, he has made increasing several mistakes over the past few campaigns.
The Frenchman was at fault for Neal Maupay’s opening goal during a 3-0 defeat to Brighton last month and is currently sidelined with a dislocated elbow problem sustained during that incident at the Amex.
Red Devils interest in the 23-year-old shot-stopper is more surprising considering they convinced long-term No.1 David De Gea to sign a new long-term deal in September following months of speculation over his future at Old Trafford.
Andre Onana joined the Eredivisie giants from Barcelona’s academy in 2015 and has gone to play 160 matches for Ajax.
