David de Gea’s availability for Manchester United’s match against West Ham on Sunday is “touch and go” because he had to quarantine after returning from paternity leave in Spain this week.
Anyone entering the UK must self-isolate for ten days, but after five days, this can be shortened by paying for a test that, if negative, allows the individual to leave quarantine.
According to The Guardian, Ole Gunnar Solskjr said, “He is back in Manchester – he is self-isolating. I guess it’s a toss-up if he’ll be able to play on Sunday. I have no idea when he returned, so I’m not sure whether it was Monday or Tuesday. He has to sit at home because he isn’t training with us anyway. It’s a different story if you compete from afar. He hasn’t done any training since he returned.”
