Manchester United’s goalkeeper, Andre Onana, is set to return early from international duty with Cameroon due to a pelvic injury sustained during the World Cup qualifier against Mauritius.
Initially thought to be a shoulder problem, further evaluation revealed an issue with the pubis, a bone in the pelvis.
The 27-year-old, valued at €40 million, was substituted in the second half of the 3-0 victory, and his availability for the upcoming match against Everton remains uncertain.
The setback may pave the way for Altay Bayindir, the Turkish goalkeeper, to make his debut for the Red Devils.
Bayindir, who joined United from Fenerbahce last summer, is known for his ball-playing skills.
While initially anticipated to debut in early January, circumstances might expedite his introduction into the squad.
Manager Erik ten Hag might face the challenge of adjusting his starting lineup for the upcoming fixtures against Everton, Galatasaray, and Newcastle United after the international break.
