André Onana was born in Nkol Ngok, Cameroon, to his parents, Adele Onana and Francois Onana. Onana has a cousin, Fabrice Ondoa, who is also a soccer goalkeeper by profession and has 50 appearances for the Cameroonian national team.

Onana's journey into soccer began at the Samuel Eto'o Academy before catching the eye of Barcelona's famed La Masia youth system at the young age of 14. While at Barcelona, Onana continued to develop his goalkeeping skills, and he was influenced by the La Masia culture, which helped him become comfortable with the ball at his feet. 

After loan spells in Spain due to being under 18 and a non-EU citizen, he moved to Dutch giants Ajax in 2015. There, he blossomed, establishing himself as the first-choice goalkeeper within a year. Onana's impressive saves and distribution played a key role in Ajax's success, helping them win three Eredivisie titles.

André Onana’s background helped him carve a path for himself as a skilled shot-stopper with excellent footwork. After his time at Samuel Eto'o Academy in his home country and Barcelona's famed La Masia youth system in 2010, he signed for Ajax, initially playing for their reserves. However, his talent was too good to be ignored for too long, and he earned his senior debut a year later.

Onana's time at Ajax was his breakout period. He became their undisputed number one, racking up an impressive 214 appearances and playing a key role in securing three Eredivisie titles. He was known for his calmness under pressure, ability to distribute with his feet, and impressive reflexes.

However, Onana's career has not been without challenges. In 2021, a doping violation led to a suspension. Despite this setback, he never fell off the radar, and in 2022, he joined Inter Milan on a free transfer.

Onana's stint at Inter was a successful one. He helped them win the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana, while also reaching the Champions League final. His impressive performances at Inter attracted the attention of Manchester United, who secured his signing for a hefty £43.8 million in 2023.
