Could David de Gea return to the Premier League (PL)? Half a year after leaving Old Trafford, it has been suggested that David De Gea could return to the PL.

The UK’s Talk Sport reported on Thursday (June 4) that “former Manchester United star De Gea and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale could join Newcastle United. Newcastle are currently without their number one goalkeeper Nick Pope, who has suffered a serious shoulder injury and will be out for up to four months. The media outlet has confirmed that De Gea, who is a free agent, has made himself available.”

“Ramsdale, who has lost his starting spot to David Raya, is also being linked with a move to Newcastle. However, Ramsdale’s transfer fee is expected to be in the region of £50 million. Newcastle are reluctant to spend money on a goalkeeper and De Gea, a free agent, is a cheaper option.”

De Gea, a longtime Old Trafford protector, has left United. His increasingly frequent mistakes and huge wages were a problem. De Gea was even willing to take a pay cut during negotiations, but his time at the club came to an end. Coach Eric ten Hagg brought in Andre Onana, a former student at Ajax, to change things up. De Gea was out of a job.

There were rumors of a return to Spain. Thibaut Courtois was rumored to be heading to Real Madrid, while Betis and Valencia were also linked. However, none of these deals were finalized. Some even speculated that De Gea could hang up his goalkeeping gloves for good.

Amidst this, Talk Sport claimed that De Gea had counter-offered himself to Newcastle. Newcastle, who have juggled the Premier League (PL), English FA Cup, English Football League Cup (EFL Cup), and UEFA Champions League (UCL) this season, have been thrown into crisis by Pope’s injury. While his time at the Magpies may have come to an end, he is a good stopgap option.

“De Gea would have to accept a significant pay cut if he were to head to St. James’ Park. Newcastle currently have Martin Dubravka, Loris Karius and Mark Gillespie in goal.” It will be interesting to see if De Gea returns to the PL.
