David de Gea, who left the Red Devils during the summer, has taken to social media to react to reports suggesting that he might make a sensational comeback to Manchester United.

The 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper, who had notched up an impressive 535 appearances during his 12-year tenure, was a beloved figure at Old Trafford before his departure.

After months of speculation, a mutual agreement was reached between United and De Gea that he would part ways with the club upon the expiration of his contract in July. However, his successor, Andre Onana, has struggled to win over fans and critics alike.

Now, it appears that De Gea might be handed an unexpected lifeline by the same club that bid him farewell.

According to The Sun, Manchester United is reportedly exploring the possibility of De Gea returning on a short-term basis in the New Year.

This contingency plan is driven by the anticipated absence of Onana, who is expected to represent Cameroon at the Africa Cup of Nations, leaving Erik ten Hag with limited goalkeeping options in the form of Altay Bayindir and Tom Heaton.

While the feasibility of De Gea’s return remains uncertain, the veteran goalkeeper has added fuel to the speculation with a cryptic social media post featuring a ‘thinking’ emoji.

Moreover, his recent reunions with former teammates in Manchester have only intensified fan excitement.

De Gea has been linked with various clubs in recent months, including teams in the Saudi Pro League. Earlier in the summer, there were even rumors of interest from German giants Bayern Munich.

Despite Onana’s shaky start at Old Trafford, Manchester United is likely to stand by him. However, Onana’s decision to rejoin the Cameroon national team has caught the club off guard.

Following a dispute with manager Alex Song during the World Cup, it seemed like his international career was over.

Nevertheless, he is now poised to miss up to eight matches, assuming he is selected for the Africa Cup of Nations, after making his national team return last month.

Despite his recent errors, Onana redeemed himself with a crucial last-minute penalty save that secured a vital 1-0 victory over FC Copenhagen, keeping Manchester United’s Champions League campaign alive.
