Man Utd keeper De Gea pining for Spanish return

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is missing life in Spain, it has been revealed. The Daily Mail says following De Gea's latest blunder against Tottenham it is understood that United will explore the possibility of sending him back to Spain in the summer after accepting that he is unlikely to ever settle on or off the pitch in England.

There have been concerns for some time that the 22-year-old is homesick. His pop star girlfriend Edurne has stayed in Madrid throughout the player's time in Manchester and language problems have hindered attempts to bond with many of his teammates.

Some are said to prefer playing in front of Anders Lindegaard.

However, Ferguson has not picked the Dane for a Premier League game since he conceded three goals in 23 minutes at Reading at the start of December, casting doubt over Lindegaard's own future at Old Trafford.
