Andre Onana is set to return to his national team side after solving a dispute with Cameroon manager Rigobert Song, according to reports.

 

The Manchester United summer signing quit international football during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after a disagreement with the head coach. The blame for the fallout with Onana had gone to Samuel Eto’o, the president of the Cameroon football federation. It is believed he wanted to get rid of the keeper at all costs.

 

But, much to the disappointment of Manchester United, it looks like Onana has solved his differences with Song. That means they will likely be without Onana throughout the African Cup of Nations if Cameroon qualifies. In that lane, Manchester United will have to play four games in January without Onana.

 

According to Actu Foot Afrique, Onana will return to the Cameroon squad in September for the next international break. According to Actu Foot Afrique, Onana will return to the Cameroon squad in September for the next international break. This comes as a boost for Cameroon ahead of the AFCON, which is due to take place between 13 January and 11 February 2024. Whereas for United, this has thrown a big spanner in the works, and now football director John Murtough is in a race against time to sign a new keeper before the transfer deadline.

 

United have been linked to Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir to come in as a new back-up option. That could be their fall back option during the AFCON.
