David de Gea has always been world-class on the pitch, but today, he was the king of social media, too…
The Spaniard, 27, saw a fan-photo of a young supporter dressed up as Manchester United’s #1 and made an incredible offer to the little boy over social media.

You just have to love stuff like this, it’s what football is all about. Players often forget that they are idolised by youngsters all over the world, and this little gesture that De Gea made will give this fan memories for the rest of his life.
At times like this, you just have to praise the players who reach out to fans. Them taking just a few minutes out of their busy schedule to do stuff like this is just brilliant, and it further endears the Old Trafford faithful to De Gea; who is already an icon, and arguably the best goalkeeper we’ve ever had.
Anyway, for De Gea, he’ll have to be at his best over the next two games as both Sevilla and Brighton visit the Theatre of Dreams in the Champions League and FA Cup respectively. These fixtures could shape our season, and with him in between the sticks you’ve always got a chance.
