Even though Manchester United hasn’t formally announced the acquisition of André Onana, it’s universally understood that the goalie from Cameroon is the chosen one to fill David De Gea’s shoes at Old Trafford.
Speculation has been rampant that manager Erik ten Hag might be seeking yet another goalkeeper after securing Onana this summer, specifically if the club decides to part ways with Dean Henderson. The latter is eager for a first-choice role and no longer wishes to be a substitute for the Red Devils.
Multiple credible sources have reported the club’s interest in Zion Suzuki, the Japanese goalkeeper. Yet, an intriguing piece of news from TuttoMercartoWeb hints at United’s possible pursuit of Yassine Bounou, the standout keeper from Sevilla and the Moroccan national team, who has shown impressive growth over the years.
The TuttoMercartoWeb report concedes that securing a deal for the Sevilla keeper might be ‘challenging, but not impossible.’ The most significant hurdle would likely involve persuading Bounou to contend for a position against André Onana, who is expected to be the preferred choice, given Erik ten Hag’s consistent endorsement of the Cameroonian goalie.
This is why TMW labels the prospect as a ‘wild idea,’ even as they seem to believe in its potential fruition.
