Journalist Fabrizio Romano expects Manchester United to stick with goalkeeper Andre Onana despite another hugely worrying display in last night’s 3-3 draw away to Galatasaray.
Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his Daily Briefing column, Romano weighed in on the Onana debate, sticking up for the former Inter Milan shot-stopper, who looked like an exciting signing when he first made the move to Old Trafford over the summer.

We’re not sure many MUFC fans will be feeling that sure about that right now, but it will be interesting to see if…
