The reappearance of Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana, at the San Siro to watch his former club play might have turned a few heads on Sunday.

The Cameroonian international departed Inter Milan for the Red Devils last summer.

While the 28-year-old left a mark during his stint in Serie A, his transition to the Premier League hasn't been the smoothest, having encountered a rather challenging season so far.

Onana isn't the sole United player performing below expectations, yet there have been instances where his individual mistakes have incurred significant costs for Erik ten Hag's side.

This has made some United faithful question the wisdom of signing the former Ajax custodian.

Why Onana travelled to watch Inter

Onana made a surprising appearance at Inter Milan's Serie A match against Cagliari on Sunday, April 14, Bleacher Report reported.

He was present at the game to support his former teammates and had a reunion with some of them, including a heartfelt moment with defender, Denzel Dumfries, before the match began.

Inter settled for a 2-2 draw, maintaining their 14-point lead over second-place AC Milan, with only six matches left in the season.

Meanwhile, some have asked if Onana could be reconsidering his departure from Inter and contemplating a return to the club.

According to a statement attributed to him by Fabrizio Romano in a post on X, the Cameroonian clarified that his visit was merely to support his beloved former club, while affirming his contentment at Old Trafford.

Onana's trip likely received approval from Manchester United, considering the Red Devils' absence from matches until the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City on April 21.

Onana buys 8-bedroom mansion in Italy

Sports Brief also previously reported that Onana purchased an 8-bedroom mansion in Milan. The 27-year-old goalkeeper had one remarkable season in Italy, leading the Serie A giants to the UEFA Champions League final before moving to England.

His latest mansion, which sits on a reported surface area of 1,300 square metres, featuring an outdoor area said to be around 3,000 square metres, is said to be worth a whopping £6.5 milllion and is located on the outskirts of Milan, in the Corbetta area.
