David de Gea could start for Manchester United against Liverpool

Published 24 Comments

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea could start for the Red Devils against Liverpool on September 12.

This has been reported by the Independent, who claim that the United hierarchy are confident Louis van Gaal and De Gea can repair their relationship, with the Spaniard set to return between the sticks at Old Trafford sooner rather than later. 

De Gea, of course, looked set to complete a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid last night, however the deal fell through late on as the La Liga outfit failed to register him to the Spanish football federation before the deadline.

Ultimately, then, Keylor Navas' expected move to Manchester was also scuppered, with De Gea now set to stay on in England's elite division for the remainder of the season. 

It appears, then, that he could even replace Sergio Romero between the sticks for the Red Devils' crunch clash with Liverpool after the international break.

United need De Gea 

There's no doubt about it, the De Gea saga has been a nightmare for all involved, but both Manchester United and the shot-stopper must put it behind them, as they go in search of success this season. 

At the end of the day, De Gea, who will be hoping to star in goal for Spain at Euro 2016, will be desperate to get back out on the pitch, while United fans will be hoping to see him reclaim the No.1 spot in Manchester. 

Ultimately, Romero isn't anywhere near the level of De Gea, so the Red Devils must find a way playing the Spaniard week in, week out in the immediate future. Perhaps, then, he really will start against Liverpool.
