It has been reported that the player wants a return to La Liga and is patiently awaiting offers from clubs in Spain.

And the wait could be close to over, as Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reports that Barcelona are keen on signing him.

As per the report, the Spanish giants have been closely monitoring De Gea’s situation. A free transfer for the seasoned goalkeeper could prove to be a beneficial move for the Catalan club, which is facing financial challenges.
