Andre Onana has been spotted in Manchester Airport ahead of joining up with the Manchester United squad in New York.
Man Utd have agreed to part with £47.7m to sign the goalkeeper from Inter this summer, with the Cameroonian travelling to England this week to complete his medical at their Carrington training complex.
The UEFA Champions League finalist has now been spotted at Manchester Airport following his medical and ahead of his flight to New York to meet up with his new teammates for the first time.
The Red Devils are set to kick off their USA pre-season tour with a clash with Premier League rivals Arsenal in New Jersey on July 22, before taking on Wrexham three days later in San Diego. They will then face Real Madrid on July 26 in Houston and finally Borussia Dortmund in Las Vegas on July 30.
It is likely that Onana could make his Man Utd debut in the clash with Real Madrid.
Speaking Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of finalising of his transfer to United, Onana stated his ambitions at Old Trafford.
“Now I really want to start this new experience, exciting and with a coach who for me is a master. I will go to a great league and a great club, which has a huge history just like that of Inter: I will start from scratch and give everything every day to show the new fans who I am,” he said.
“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 United is irresistible.
“All parties wanted this to happen. But what matters is that if I had stayed, I would have been happy because I never had any problems at Inter.”
