David de Gea will not return – Says Louis Van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that goalkeeper, David de Gea will not return to the squad for his side’s game against Aston Villa today.

The 24-year-old Spain international missed United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend because Van Gaal felt he was not in the right frame of mind due to speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

New signing Sergio Romero deputised for United in their Premier League opener against Spurs and is likely to do so again at Villa Park.

Asked if De Gea was in contention to play against Villa, Van Gaal told a press conference in Manchester that the situation will remain the same.
