According to Todo Fichajes, De Gea is now seemingly considering a possible return to former club Atletico Madrid as he assesses his options for the future.

The report seems to suggest that both Man Utd and De Gea could be leaning towards the player finally moving on at the end of this season.

It is not entirely clear from the piece if Henderson would automatically be promoted to first choice, however, as there’s also suggestion of interest in AC Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma as he nears the end of his contract at the San Siro.

It would be intriguing to see how the 30-year-old would get on with a move back to Atletico Madrid, the club he left as a youngster.
