Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will sit down with David de Gea on Wednesday in an attempt to iron out his immediate future, reports Goal.
The Spanish goalkeeper came incredibly close to leaving for Real Madrid on the final day of the summer transfer window only to see the transfer break down.
With most people around the club expecting De Gea to leave, Van Gaal decided to exclude him from Manchester United's opening games this season, claiming he was not in the right mental state to play.

However, with De Gea now staying at Old Trafford until January at least, he is likely to return to the starting XI in the near future. Indeed, some pundits are expecting him to start in Saturday's game against Liverpool.
The player himself has already spoken out about the situation, claiming he wants to play for Manchester United once again.
Speaking after starring for Spain in their 1-0 win over Macedonia, he said: “I felt good. I really liked playing again. Now I have to keep working, and I hope to be lucky now with my club."
Before Van Gaal can displace current first-choice Sergio Romero, the Dutchman wants to sit down with De Gea in an attempt to rebuild the bridges that threatened to collapse during a tense transfer window.
Real Madrid openly criticised Manchester United for the failure to respond to their £29million bid in sufficient time. The Red Devils hit back, claiming it was the La Liga club at fault for the collapse.
De Gea has done well to stay quiet amidst a messy affair and now seems ready to continue his Manchester United career, at least for now.
