Andre Onana set for U-Turn as Man United decision forthcoming



| Last Updated:


Andre Onana could be set to make a U-Turn following his mistakes during Manchester United’s draw against Galatasaray in the Champions League.

Onana, 27, was building confidence over the last month following a shaky start to life at Old Trafford but returned to difficulties in Istanbul on Wednesday.

The United goalkeeper was at fault for at least two of Galatasaray’s goals as United led their lead slip to draw the game, making qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League very complicated for Erik ten Hag’s side.

They will be relying on Galatasaray to draw with FC Copenhagen whilst needing three points against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford in the final set of group games later this month.

Onana, who was distraught at full-time at RAMS Park, is now debating whether to leave Old Trafford duty for the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

That’s according to information from the Manchester Evening News, which states that the goalkeeper is ‘concerned’ that he could end up losing his place in the team to second-choice Altay Bayındır if he represents Cameroon in the tournament.

Onana could end up missing up to six games for United if he leaves, and that would provide Bayindir with the chance to prove his worth as the no.1 at the club.

“We are very happy with our keeper group,” Ten Hag explained. “André, Altay, Tom (Heaton), as a group they do really well, they have good performances and they have to push each other

“We are very pleased with Altay. He gets used to Premier League, he gets used to European football, which is tough when you are coming from Turkey but we are very pleased with the process. He is doing very well.

“He has to be patient but if he works well, if he keeps his progress, he will get his chances and he has to take this.”

Onana has a frosty relationship with Cameroon manager Rigobert Song, and the goalkeeper even retired from international duty after the pair clashed during the 2022 World Cup before returning in recent international breaks.
