David de Gea looks set to make his return to the Man United XI after one of the strangest summers ever.
Man United’s star goalkeeper David De Gea appears to be getting ready for a return to Premier League action this weekend against Liverpool.
According to the Telegraph, De Gea will have a tune-up match representing Spain in the Euro 2016 qualifier against Macedonia and show his readiness to rejoin the Red Devils this weekend.
De Gea has not played in a match since the pre-season for Man United but Spanish manager Vicente del Bosque believes the reigning PFA Goalkeeper of the Year could play the entire match.
“He (De Gea) is in condition to play,” Del Bosque said. “We have talked with him and he is fine. I do not know if he will play or not, but he is OK and that’s all I wanted to know.
“He is a mature guy and is ready to play without suffering any burden of what happened. I have talked to him. I did not want to give him any advice because many people have already done it.
“I just asked whether he was in condition to play and he told me yes. Nothing else. We have a big squad and we must rotate it.”
De Gea will replace Iker Casillas, who recorded a clean sheet in Spain’s win over Slovakia this past weekend.
Man United attempted to send De Gea to Real Madrid in a swap deal for Keylor Navas, but the deal fell through at literally the last minute because of a bad fax machine.
