United star to snub England for Africa?

English Premier League

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly considering turning his back on England in favour of a DR Congo call-up.

Wan-Bissaka, who was born in Croydon, England, has been overlooked for national team selection by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate since 2019 and is reportedly considering switching allegiances. 

The 23-year-old is of Congolese descent and, according to The Mirror, will turn his back on his country of birth if he is not called up for England's upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

Wan-Bissaka is a regular for the Red Devils but has failed to break through into the national team set up, where Southgate has preferred the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier or Reece James as his right-back options.

The former Crystal Palace star previously represented DR Congo at U-20 level before being recruited into England's youth set-up, but could now return to the senior fold for the Central African nation should he not feature later this month.
