Andre Onana’s replacement enjoying blinding start at Inter Milan… after being snubbed for Man Utd transfer

ANDRE ONANA is enduring a difficult start to his Manchester United career.

But his Inter Milan replacement Yann Sommer is excelling at the San Siro.

Onana left the Champions League finalists for Old Trafford in a £47million deal over the summer.

He was expected to solve United’s keeping woes following David de Gea‘s underwhelming final season at the club.

But he has conceded 14 goals in just six matches thus far – including a howler against Bayern Munich in mid-week.

Sommer, meanwhile, has helped Inter to a sensational start in Serie A – conceding just one goal in their opening four matches, winning all of them.

Even that one concession came in the 5-1 derby day demolition of fierce rivals AC Milan.

The Mail claim that Sommer has shown “greater charisma” and “more patience” than Onana.

They even add that the Swiss veteran has looked better with his feet than Onana – a trait that the Ghanaian excels at.

Sommer joined Inter for around £5m from Bayern Munich.


He had only joined the German giants from Borussia Monchengladbach in January following Manuel Neuer‘s long-term injury – snubbing United in the process.

Inter had been eager to sign Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli as their Onana replacement.

But after being turned down by Vicario in favour of Tottenham the Serie A side turned to Sommer.

Following Onana’s Bayern gaffe, Man United legend Rio Ferdinand called it a “nightmare”.

He said: “This is a nightmare scenario for Onana.

“He is as confident as you like with his feet but as a goalkeeper you are expected to come in and makes saves.

“It is a great bit of skill from (Leroy) Sane to set it up well but he doesn’t hit it with any real purpose. It is not wide of him, it is not in the corners.

“He should save this, he should be picking this up and looking for his next pass. It is a very, very bad mistake and one he needs to recover from.”

Following Inter’s 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad, meanwhile, boss Simone Inzaghi praised his goalkeeper – saying: “We did well to stay in it and are also grateful to Sommer, who played his part.”

Yann Sommer has had an excellent start to life at Inter MilanRex
