David De Gea wants to win his place back for Manchester UnitedReuters

After making an appearance for Spain against Macedonia, and also earning a clean sheet in the Euro 2016 Qualifiers on Tuesday, David de Gea may have won his place back as the Manchester United No. 1.

The Daily Mirror claims that sources close to the English Premier League club have confirmed to the newspaper that Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is ready to make the Spaniard the first-choice keeper once again, and award his first start of the Premier League 2015-16 season against Liverpool this Saturday.

It is also reported that both De Gea and Van Gaal will hold talks at United's training ground in Carrington later today, to clear out the future path.

De Gea dominated headlines during the summer transfer window, as he was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid. However, after months of speculation, a deadline day move fell through.

A blame-game ensued between Manchester United and Real, after the official documents could not reach the Spanish Football Federation Headquarters before the deadline. And for now, De Gea, who has a contract at Old Trafford until next summer, will have to stay with the Premier League side until at least the January transfer window next year.

Van Gaal also didn't want to field De Gea in any of the games until the cloud of uncertainty over his future ended. Argentine custodian Sergio Romero started all of Manchester United's four Premier League games this season, as well as the two UEFA Champions League playoff matches.

But now, Manchester United fans might just get to see De Gea, who had a terrific campaign last season, back in action.

Following Spain's win over Macedonia, De Gea himself stated that he would love to win his place back in the Manchester United lineup.

"I felt good out there [starting for Spain]. I really wanted to play the game. Now I have to keep working hard and let's see if I have the same luck with my club", the 24-year-old was quoted by Marca.

It was reported only days back that Manchester United are willing to offer the player a fresh long-term contract in October.
