Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea could make his return to Premier League action against Liverpool this weekend, according to reports.
The 24-year-old looks set to start for Spain in their EURO 2016 qualifier against Macedonia, and The Telegraph reports Louis van Gaal could throw the goalkeeper straight back into the line up for Saturday’s clash at Old Trafford.
De Gea looked set for a dream move to Real Madrid, but required paperwork to complete the deal was filed one minute past the European transfer deadline.
Van Gaal left De Gea out of United’s opening four Premier League fixtures, with the former Dutch national boss worried the goalkeeper was not in the right mindset to take to the field.
Following the dramatic collapse of the deal, it seems Van Gaal is now ready to put De Gea back into the side in place of summer signing Sergio Romero.
De Gea was superb for the Red Devils last season and United fans will be hoping the Spanish international can return to top form despite uncertainty over his future.
