Rumors are in circulation that Man United has signed Atletico Madrid’s talented goalkeeper, David De Gea, to replace superstar Manchester United goalkeeper, Edwin van der Sar, who retires after United’s Champions League Final clash with FC Barcelona on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Spanish Under-21 international reportedly is on the verge of sealing a summer transfer to Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson recently  issued a glowing assessment of him in terms of replacing retiring goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.

“He’s a young goalkeeper, very quick, good composure, presence and an outstanding replacement for Van der Sar.” said Ferguson on Tuesday night.

De Gea’s lawyer has issued a statement insisting no deal has been finalised – and that De Gea wants to focus on Spain’s involvement in the upcoming European Under-21 tournament in Denmark on June 11.

A statement that was released to Spanish news agency EFE states, “News has appeared in various media outlets today that Atletico Madrid’s David De Gea has signed for Manchester United. I hereby notify you that it is not true a deal has been signed.”

“De Gea will not consider the contract extension offer from Atletico or any other offer until June 30 when he has finished his commitments with the Under-21 national team.”
