Is David De Gea has become the ‘unwanted’ inside the Manchester United squad? However, multiple reports in Manchester are suggesting the deterioration in the relationship between the Spanish goalkeeper and Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
David De Gea was again dropped against Brighton Hove Albion on Sunday. Dean Henderson kept his place into the side and started for the Red Devils. This arose some serious questions about the future of David De Gea.
David De Gea was given leave last month to be with his family as he and his wife were expecting a baby at that time. Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the opportunity and gave the chance to the English goalkeeper. Dean Henderson played very well in David De Gea’s absence.
However, De Gea joined the side before the international break. He was dropped against Leicester City in FA Cup quarter-finals. Many felt it was not really signal anything as it was a cup match. But his exclusion against Brighton arises some question again.
Some reports suggest Solskjaer and De Gea’s relationship was becoming a problem. It gave the opportunity to Dean Henderson to cement his place into the squad.
Though Ole denies all these rumors after the match against Brighton. Solskjaer said, “I’ve got two great keepers, two No.1s. David De Gea spent a while back home and then he had internationals so he hadn’t played for about a month. He’ll definitely play football for us again.”
Manchester United’s next match is against Granada in UEFA Europa League quarter-final. It will be interesting to see if Ole bring the Manchester United’s number one back into the side or not.
