David De Gea has been one of the top goalkeepers for the last decade. During Manchester United’s tough period after Sir Alex Ferguson retired, De Gea has been the backbone of United under the bars.
Manchester United signed David De Gea from Atletico Madrid in 2011 for £19million, a British record fee for a goalkeeper at the time. It’s been almost a decade De Gea has been at Old Trafford.
De Gea felt it hard to keep going in his initial years but after some experience in the Premier League, he became the best goalkeeper of the league. Real Madrid wanted to lure him away in 2015 but the move failed and he is now contracted at United till 2023.
David De Gea said in a United Hangout: “Just to be a part of this club is amazing. So, imagine, [nearly] 10 years, it’s like a dream. It’s great to play games with this club, so I hope I can be here more years, many years.”
“I think the whole team improved a lot. We were in a good moment. I think we were in very good, top form.”
“We didn’t concede many goals, and of course with Bruno he brings a lot of quality. He’s a clever player, a top midfielder, the team improves with him and it was a pity that everything stopped because we were in a good moment.
“But hopefully with some players that were injured will be fit when it all starts again, so it will be a good challenge for everyone.”
