David de Gea Named In Man United’s Champions League Squad

ddg-watchesManchester United’s game of chicken with over the future of goalkeeper David de Gea took another turn on Tuesday when de Gea was included in United’s squad for the play-off against Club Brugge.

The goalkeeper was left out of United’s matchday group for the 1-0 win over at Old Trafford on the opening day of the Premier League season.

UEFA rules state that a player cannot play for two teams in the Champions League in the same season but with an exception for qualifying rounds, meaning De Gea could hypothetically play for a second team in the tournament even if he plays against Brugge.

United’s five new signings – Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay are in named in the squad.

Manchester United squad to play Club Brugge:
David de Gea, Anders Lindegaard, Sergio Romero, Sam Johnstone; Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Antonio , Paddy McNair, Matteo Darmian, Tyler Blackett; Juan Mata, Michael Carrick, Daley Blind, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira; Memphis Depay, Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj, Javier Hernandez, James Wilson.
