Man United are reportedly looking at options to replace Onana

Manchester United are seeking a replacement for goalkeeper Andre Onana after just six weeks of the new season, according to reports from Spain.


The Cameroon international has experienced a difficult start to life at Old Trafford following his move from Inter Milan to replace club legend David de Gea.

The Red Devils, according to reports, may now be exploring their options to replace him.

Man United reportedly already eyeing up a replacement for Andre Onana.


The 27-year-old came under fire for his mistake in Man United's 4-3 defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Onana allowed Leroy Sane’s low-driven shot to slip through his fingertips before conceding another three and had also come under pressure for previous mistakes in earlier games.

The ‘keeper did impress, however, in Man United's 1-0 win away to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday night – his second clean sheet of the season.

Yet, reports in Spain are suggesting that a replacement could be coming to Old Trafford much sooner than expected.


According to Fichajes, Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak is being considered by Erik ten Hag as Onana’s replacement.

Oblak has been at the Spanish giants since 2014 and established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and featured in Atletico’s derby day win against Real Madrid on Sunday as Diego Simeone’s side beat them 3-1.


At 30, it’s unlikely that Oblak would be seen as a long-term fix at Old Trafford.

But given his stature, is potentially seen as someone who can provide a quick solution to Man United’s defensive issues.
