The Independent revealed, leader MU wanted to bring the goalkeeper playing for Aston Villa, Emiliano Martinez, to Old Trafford in the summer transfer.
Emiliano Martinez is in excellent form at the 2022 World Cup, making a significant contribution in Argentina’s journey to the top of glory. This goalkeeper also makes people remember with his spectacular penalty kicks at the Copa America last year,…
At the 2023 Golden Ball awards gala at the end of October, Emiliano Martinez was honored as Best Goalkeeper.
In the eyes of MU’s big bosses, Martinez can replace David de Gea. However, Erik ten Hag blocked this move to reunite with his old player at Ajax, Andre Onana. The Red Devils then spent 55 million euros to bring the Cameroon goalkeeper back from Inter Milan at the request of the Dutch coach.
However, Andre Onana faced criticism and a series of ridicule because of difficult mistakes amid MU’s poor performance. Luckily for Erik ten Hag, the 27-year-old golfer’s performance gradually improved after FIFA Days in mid-October, gradually creating confidence in his teammates and Red Devils fans.
Andre Onana was mentioned by Erik ten Hag as one of four names that could play a key role at MU (both on and off the field) to help him turn the situation around, alongside Harry Maguire, McTominay and captain Bruno Fernandes.
These are the players who are given the opportunity to create connections in the dressing room and raise morale so that the entire MU team can overcome difficulties together.
MU is currently ranked 6th in the Premier League with 21 points, 5 points behind 4th place (held by Tottenham). Erik ten Hag is optimistic, the Red Devils can completely jump to the top 4 with confidence, no matter what, the opponents ranked above will drop points.
