Manchester United are reportedly exploring a move to bring David de Gea back to Old Trafford, three months after letting him walk out the door according to reports.
Manchester United signed Andre Onana from Inter Milan for £47million as a replacement of De Gea who seemed not to suit the manager’s playing style of building from the back.
Should Onana join the Cameroon national team for upcoming AFCON in January 2024, it means that United will be without their number one shot stopper for about 8 games.
Manchester United goalkeeping department currently lacks depth as Onana and Altay Bayindir are the only available goalkeepers, Tom Heaton has been struggling with injuries since the season started.
According to The Sun newspaper reports that United could turn back to De Gea who remains as a free agent since he left Manchester United last after failing to agree on new contract.
On Monday Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes shared a photo on Instagram alongside former Manchester United shot stopper as they enjoyed coffee together with other Manchester United players.
The Spaniard showed last weekend how he was still close to the United captain, sharing a selfie of the pair embracing on Instagram.
The Spaniard, 32, spent 12 years at Old Trafford before he left when his contract ran out.De Gea was offered reduced terms to stay at United, with his wages being slashed from £375,000 a week to £200,000 a week.
But even that deal was taken off the table in the end, United asked De Gea not to agree to join another club until they had completed Onana’s transfer.
