Manchester United Consider David de Gea Return Amid Goalkeeper Concerns

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly considering resigning goalkeeper David de Gea three months after his departure due to concerns over their goalkeeper situation.

Manager Erik ten Hag aimed to reshape the squad in the summer and sought a new No. 1 goalkeeper, who could execute the desired out-from-the-back style. This led to the signing of Andre Onana from Inter Milan for £47 million and De Gea's departure.

However, with Onana potentially missing several games in January if he joins Cameroon for the Africa Cup of Nations, United are exploring the possibility of a return for De Gea, who remains a free agent. The Red Devils are said to be ready for a U-turn, given the limited goalkeeper options if Onana is unavailable. Altay Bayindir, a 25-year-old summer signing, and the injury-prone Tom Heaton are the alternatives.

De Gea had initially considered staying at United but refused to accept a significant pay cut on his £375,000-a-week wages. Now, there's speculation of a potential reunion in the New Year.

The Spaniard was recently seen with his former United teammates, and supporters have expressed their desire for his return, especially given Onana's mixed start to the season. De Gea maintains his fitness and remains open to offers while enjoying some downtime in Manchester.

The prospect of De Gea's return has generated excitement among some fans and players, with many expressing their desire for his comeback. However, it remains to be seen if this reunion will come to fruition.
