Revealed: Andre Onana's squad number

Thursday 20 July 2023 19:30

The official squad number of Manchester United's new signing Andre Onana can now be revealed.

The Cameroon international completed his transfer from Internazionale on Thursday afternoon, putting pen to paper on a five-year deal with the option for a further year.

Onana will link up with Erik ten Hag for the second time, after their stint at Ajax, where the goalkeeper made 214 appearances between 2016 and 2022.

Our new man has flown over to the United States to take part in Tour 2023 and it can be confirmed that Onana will wear the no.24 jersey for the Reds.

This is a number Andre has sported for much of his career at club level, including at Ajax and for Inter, who he helped reach the Champions League final last season.

The no.24 jersey has been vacant at United since January 2021, when previous incumbent Tim Fosu-Mensah completed his move to Bayer Leverkusen.

It has been worn in the Premier League era by several famous names, including Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Wes Brown, but surely the most notable adoptee prior to Onana was Darren Fletcher.

Our current technical director had the no.24 on his back for all but two games of his 342-match career with the club.
