Manchester United first choice goalkeeper David De Gea has missed United’s last two matches after he was granted leave to return to his native Spain for the birth of his first child.

De Gea missed the games against Manchester City and AC Milan, with Dean Henderson keeping in his stead.

Having returned to Spain be with his family, the 30-year-old is now back in England, as he’s set to resume duties in between the goalpost.

Ahead of facing West Ham this weekend, Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has now revealed that De Gea is back in Manchester, but is observing a period of self-isolation.

“David is back in Manchester,” Solskjaer said.

“So he is quarantining, or self-isolating. He is touch and go for Sunday I think, as I am not sure if it was Monday or Tuesday when he arrived back in Manchester.

“No, I think he has got to stay at home. I think so, he is not training with us anyway. It is different if you travel away and compete, so no he has not been training since he came back.”

Dean Henderson is expected to be in goal this weekend, as De Gea will have to miss the clash. Do you think De Gea should resume as number one goalkeeper?
