Andre Onana has admitted that the chance to join Manchester United was “irresistible”.
The Cameroon goalkeeper is in the United Kingdom currently to complete a £47 million move from Inter Milan.
Erik ten Hag has picked Onana, who he managed at Ajax, as his top choice to replace David de Gea as United’s No. 1.
The Red Devils will pay £43.8 million upfront for the 27-year-old and £3.4 million in add-ons.
Onana has now spoken about his excitement at linking up with the Premier League giants.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “The important thing is to be honest and always tell people the truth.
“I am a person who always wants new challenges.
“Playing in the Premier League and for a club like Man United is irresistible. All parties wanted this to happen.
