Manchester United number one David De Gea is hoping to reclaim his place in the side when the Red Devils face arch rivals Liverpool on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Spain international has not played for the club this season following the protracted negotiations over his doomed move to Real Madrid in the summer.
Whilst the two clubs continue to squabble over who was to blame for the collapse of the move, De Gea has been left sat on the sidelines and Argentina international Sergio Romero has been in goal for all of United’s games so far this season.
De Gea claims he is now ready to resume his United career and he was back in action for Spain on Tuesday against Macedonia in a Euro 2016 qualifier.
“I felt good,” said De Gea.
“I really wanted to play. Now I need to keep working and see if I have some good fortune at my club as well.”
It remains to be seen if he gets the nod to return in United’s first game back after the international break which just happens to be the massive north-west showdown with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
With both sides having tasted defeat prior to the international break both will be desperate to avoid another loss and De Gea, who has been included in United’s Champions League squad, may make a return.
He remains unconcerned over his future, saying: “My future will be the same as now: remain calm, keep working and improving. In concrete terms, enjoy my football. I am happy.”
Despite their defeat to Swansea last time out United go into the game as clear favourites at 1.91 with the draw priced at 3.40 and an away win at 4.33.
