Manchester United Update, David de Gea

David De Gea

Van Der Sar will be a hard act to follow.

The veteran Dutch superstar retired at the end of last season and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson chose the 20-year-old Spaniard as his new goalkeeper.

De Gea is very highly rated all over Europe, winning the Europa League with his former club, Atletico Madrid, and helped Spain win the U21 European Championships as well.

De Gea cost the Red Devils £18million.

“They scouted all over Europe and found a couple of targets and they chose de Gea,” said Van Der Sar.

“Hopefully he’s going to have a great career at Manchester United.

“He’s very talented. He’s already won a trophy with Atletico Madrid and the Spain Under-21 team so the prospect of him doing well is there.

“Everybody has to be his own person but I’ve met him. I’ve spoken to him and it looks to me as though he can handle it.”
