“He and Erik ten Hag had orchestrated it from the start. His departure wasn’t spontaneous, which is why he hasn’t signed with any other club yet. Now, he’s returned to lend his support to the club.” – David de Gea rejects a surprising transfer back to a Premier League club as he ultimately opts to return to his former club. Even his fellow players are taken aback, but Ten Hag saw it coming.

In a recent update, David de Gea declined an opportunity to join a Premier League club during the January transfer window.


The veteran Spanish goalkeeper, who bid farewell to Manchester United last summer after a remarkable 12-year tenure, remains without a team. While speculation swirled about a potential move to Saudi Arabia, De Gea has yet to finalize any deal in the Middle East.


Nottingham Forest emerged as contenders to secure the services of the seasoned shot-stopper.


Despite Forest’s efforts to entice De Gea with the prospect of regular playing time until the season’s end, the 33-year-old opted against their ‘short-term’ proposition, preferring to explore alternative avenues.


In addition to their pursuit of De Gea, Forest also explored the availability of Aaron Ramsdale from Arsenal.


However, Ramsdale, displaced from his starting role by David Raya, was targeted by Forest before they ultimately secured Matz Sels from Strasbourg.


Sels, the Belgian goalkeeper, arrived at the City Ground in a £5.1 million deal, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract on deadline day.


With Sels in their ranks, Forest now boast a goalkeeper contingent that includes Matt Turner, Wayne Hennessey, and Odysseas Vlachodimos.


De Gea’s rejection leaves him still in search of a new club. Despite the closure of the transfer window, the Spaniard remains a free agent, eligible to sign for a team outside of the designated transfer window period.


Throughout his illustrious stint at Manchester United, De Gea amassed 545 appearances across all competitions.


His significant contributions were pivotal to the club’s triumphs in the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Europa League. Additionally, he represented the Spanish national team on 45 occasions.


As he continues his quest for a new club, De Gea’s wealth of experience and proven track record render him an enticing prospect for potential suitors.
