Fans were quick to react on social media.

One said: “Us moving from one end of the spectrum to the other end is crazy, De Gea is one of the worst goalkeepers with their feet while Onana is top tier.”

Another tweeted: “TEARS IN MY EYES.”

A third fan added: “We’ve finally got it… A ball playing keeper.”

Someone else wrote: “De Gea sends the ball back to Manchester if he tried that.”

Whilst a fifth commented: “A keeper with good feet not seen this at my club for time.”

Upon joining the club, Onana said: “I’m very excited. For me, it’s a big honour. It’s a big privilege to be part of this big club, part of this family.

“Of course, Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I have some friends who were playing here.”

He added: “I also had the opportunity to work with Edwin van der Sar when I was playing for Ajax back in the day, so I know quite a lot about this big club.”

Onana could be in line to make his United debut when they take on Arsenal on Saturday night.
