The transfer to Old Trafford also sees the 27-year-old become the first goalkeeper from the African continent to sign for Man United.
According to his, he has made his family prod with his latest movement.
“Yeah, they are very proud. They are very proud of me and everything, for me and my country,” he told the club’s media.
“For me, it’s something big, it’s big news. I have all the support from my brothers from Cameroon. I’m very happy and all of them they are proud of me.
“Coming from my country, it is great to have someone who is playing for Manchester United, because it’s a top club, it’s a huge club. It’s amazing for us.”
Onana has already joined his teammates in the United States of America for pre-season as they continue preparations for the 2023/24 season.
