David De Gea has returned to England after the birth of his daughter, Yanai, but all to the point that he will not be able to play against West Ham due to the isolation to which he has to submit following the current health regulations due to the Covid pandemic- 19.
The goalkeeper received permission from Manchester United to fly to Madrid and attend the birth of his first daughter and, although he has returned in time for Monday’s game against West Ham United, he will have to undergo isolation for having left the bubble of the United.
Although elite athletes can travel without restrictions, they only avoid quarantines when it is for work reasons, so De Gea will have to isolate himself now for five days and if on the fifth day he tests negative, he will be available to return with the team. .
Solskjaer doubts it is available
Today Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager, expressed doubts that De Gea could be available on Monday. “I don’t really know when he came back, I’m not really sure if it was Monday or Tuesday when he returned to Manchester,” said the Norwegian coach. “In any case, he has not been training with us since he returned.”
De Gea has not been present in the last three United games, starting all three Dean Henderson, who left a clean sheet against Crystal Palace (0-0) and in the derby against Manchester City at the Etihad (0 -2), both in the Premier League, while on Thursday he missed the goal he conceded against Milan (1-1) in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 at Old Trafford.
