Onana jets out to meet Man United team-mates on pre-season tour in New York

Andre Onana was seen heading to New York on Thursday after carrying out his Manchester United medical, with the £43million goalkeeper set to link up with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour.

United are poised to confirm the signing of Onana, 27, from Inter Milan on a five-year contract with the option of a further 12 months after identifying him as their top target to replace David de Gea this summer.

De Gea called time on his 12-year spell at Old Trafford earlier this month after failing to agree a new deal – prompted by the reservations of manager Erik ten Hag over his suitability as the club prepare to challenge for major silverware.

Ten Hag and Co pinpointed Onana as their preferred candidate to succeed him in between the sticks, and after striking an initial £43m deal with Inter the shot-stopper was seen arriving in Manchester for his medical on Tuesday.

Two days later, the Cameroonian has been spotted at Manchester airport after seemingly completing that medical, allowing him to jet out to New York and link up with the squad ahead of official confirmation of his move.

If announced in time, Onana could make his debut against Arsenal on Saturday in New Jersey before featuring in subsequent matches against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
