More than 10% of FPL users have already bought Andre Onana following price reveal

More than 10% of FPL users have already bought Andre Onana following price reveal

Man Utd goalkeeper Andre Onana will be a popular pick in this season's Fantasy Premier League campaign.

A price reveal for Andre Onana has led many Fantasy Premier League users to transfer the Manchester United goalkeeper into their team ahead of Gameweek 1.

It has been a whirlwind week for former Cameroon international Onana, who completed his medical on Tuesday ahead of his highly-anticipated £47.5 million move from Inter Milan.

Two days later, the 27-year-old hopped on a flight to New York to join up with the rest of his teammates on their pre-season tour of America; where they will come up against Wrexham, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Onana wasn't involved in Saturday's 2-0 win against Arsenal at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey but is expected to feature for Erik ten Hag's side in the coming weeks.

And following this summer's departure of David De Gea, the former Ajax man will almost certainly be Manchester United's number one when the Premier League season rolls around.

Ahead of their opening day fixture against Wolves on August 14, the official price for Onana has been revealed at £5.0m by the Fantasy Premier League website.

An FPL scout went on to recommend the transfer to users, saying: “The goalkeeper offers a cheaper route into the Man Utd defence than Luke Shaw [£5.5m], who is found in 34 per cent of squads.

"Erik ten Hag’s side kept a league-high 11 clean sheets at home last season and host Wolves and Nottingham Forest in the first three Gameweeks.”

As mentioned on the site, Onana’s distribution will be a key factor in his acquisition. In fact, he completed 81.3 per cent of his passes last season, more than 10 per cent up on De Gea’s 71.1 per cent

This, along with his impressive shots saved [73.5 per cent last season, conceding a goal every 90 minutes], lifts his potential when it comes to the FPL's Bonus Points System.

Manchester United's official website also commented on the FPL price reveal, saying: "Andre's price for the new season has been set at £5m, meaning it would be silly not to consider our new no.24 for your side.

"In what will be his debut term in Premier League, it is worth remembering the Reds kept a whopping 17 clean sheets last season, as we posted a third-placed finish for 2022/23.

"With £100m to spend overall, only Manchester City's Ederson and Liverpool's Alisson will set you back more overall than Onana for the upcoming 2023/24 campaign."

Will you be handing Onana a place in your Fantasy team ahead of Gameweek 1?
