Speaking ahead of his side’s next Premier League clash against West Ham, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea could be recalled to his first-team plans.
De Gea was recently allowed personal leave to attend the birth of his daughter in Spain, prompting the Red Devils to promote back-up keeper Dean Henderson to a starting role.
However, despite Henderson being told to prepare to feature heavily throughout the month of March (as per MEN), Solskjaer may have changed his plans.
Whilst speaking in a recent press conference, when asked about De Gea’s availability, Solskjaer said: “David is back in Manchester, yeah.
“He’s quarantining or self-isolating. He’s just touch-and-go for Sunday [vs West Ham], I think.
“I can’t really know when he came back so I’m not really sure if it was Monday or Tuesday that he arrived back in Manchester.”
