Manchester United’s 2018 was certainly one to forget. The summer transfer window was poor, losing the FA Cup final to Chelsea really hurt and Jose Mourinho’s team were churning out some god-awful performances.
However, as has always been the case for roughly the last half-decade, David de Gea has remained consistently superb. The Spaniard has saved our bacon on numerous occasions, and I’m getting twitchy in regards to the fact that he is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract.
Anyway, for now we should enjoy his brilliance, and for his wonderful displays, De Gea has earned himself a spot in EA Sports’ FIFA 19 Team of the Year as you can see from the photo below.
For regular Ultimate Team players, no doubt you’ll all be hoping to pull De Gea in your packs. You have to admit, having this guy in between the sticks for you will certainly improve your chances at picking up those all-important wins in FUT Champions, and no doubt I’ll be trying to get Big Dave as soon as possible.
With United now on the up, it’ll be intriguing to see if his happiness levels improve and maybe that’ll ensure that he sticks around and signs a bumper contract that he desperately deserves.
