At Manchester United. we’ve been blessed with some truly brilliant goalkeepers in between the sticks at Old Trafford, including the likes of the Great Dane, Peter Schmeichel and Edwin Van der Sar. However, in my opinion, the most talented guy we’ve had is the current #1.
David de Gea has been truly wonderful for the Red Devils in his five-year spell at the club, and year-on-year, the Spaniard has gotten better and better. Quite frankly, we’re still lucky to have him, following that debacle of a transfer saga involving Real Madrid two years ago.
However, it looks as though Los Blancos are about to come back to Manchester United and try and lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu once more. That’s according to the Daily Mirror, who say Zinedine Zidane’s side are ‘determined’ to sign the 26-year-old this coming summer.
I believe that Madrid were always going to come back in for his signature, it was just a matter of time. I’m also of the view that eventually, De Gea will move back to his homeland, and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.
I guess the only way that I think we have any chance of keeping hold of ‘Big Dave’ is if Manchester United manage to put Champions League football on the table for next season, but that is certainly hanging on by a thread if recent results are anything to go by.
