The Spaniard spent 12 years at Old Trafford before leaving the Red Devils in the summer.
Andre Onana, an Inter Milan goalkeeper, cost £43 million for United to acquire in place of De Gea, but the Cameroonian has had a mixed debut for the team.
While Erik ten Hag will continue to play for Onana, United may be without the goalie for as long as a month in January due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations with Cameroon.
After leaving Fenerbahce in September to join the Red Devils for £4 million, Altay Bayındır has not yet made his team debut.
According to The Sun, De Gea is in negotiations with United to rejoin the team and replace Onana. De Gea is presently in Manchester.
When De Gea’s contract was about to expire last summer, he hinted at his departure from United by tweeting a “thinking face” emoji.
The Spaniard was obviously talking about his future as it became apparent that his time at United was ended. He rarely uploads anything other than images from matchdays.
Additionally, De Gea’s Twitter [X] activity today seemed to be an attempt to address the rumors once more.
De Gea made reference to the rumors of his return when he posted the “quizzical” expression.
Though he is a free agent, the Spaniard is still without a club, therefore it is unclear whether he will make an incredible comeback to the northwest.
When Ten Hag meets with the media on Friday ahead of Sunday’s match against Manchester City, he may be questioned about De Gea.
