Manchester United’s incoming new signing Andre Onana has penned a heartfelt goodbye to Inter Milan on Instagram.

He has completed his medical ahead of a £46million transfer, replacing David De Gea who left Old Trafford on a free transfer.

He wrote: “I never imagined that a farewell would be so hard. A year ago I became a Nerazzurro, many people told me that this club and this city had something special. Now I can confirm it. In my first days as a Nerazzurro I realised that this is a family, that being Interisti is a way of understanding life.

“I fell in love with San Siro, la Curva and the city. Now the circumstances are right for me to start a new journey in Manchester. I do it with great enthusiasm, but knowing that I will miss you. Eternal gratitude to all the interisti. You make this club great.

“Maybe one day our paths will cross again, but now it’s time to face new challenges and cheer you on from afar. Players come and go, but the club always remains, and Inter is above everything and everyone. André Onana”
