Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana is set to return to the Cameroon national team after retiring from international football in December following his team’s exit from the 2022 World Cup. The 27-year-old departed after a fallout with Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song.

Onana will play in his national team’s AFCON qualifier against Burundi on September 12 after the Cameroonian government intervened in an effort to lure him to the team. Still, sources have confirmed that the Man United shot-stopper is yet to commit himself to appearing at the tournament earlier next year.

Should Onana decide to play in the African Cup of Nations, United will need to rely on the services of fellow summer signing Altay Bayindir and Tom Heaton in his stead. The Cameroonian star has already informed the club of his decision to play in the game against Burundi.
