David De Gea, Spanish Goalkeeper extraordinaire, has stated that he is happy at Old Trafford and expressed his gratitude towards the Manchester United fans.
The entire summer transfer window was defined by reports of De Gea’s impending departure from Manchester United, but it never took place and now the Spaniard has signed a new 4 year contract with the club and has recently opened up about his love for Man United.
a I felt in that moment that to extend my contract was the best thing to do,a he told ESPN Deportes TV show Fuera De Juego, according to The Guardian. a Ia m really happy now, at one of the biggest clubs in the world, where I feel loved by the fans. Nobody let me down or disappointed me a these are things that happen. You must look forward, and I am very happy now.
a During the market anything can happen, it can all change inside a minute. Football is like that. There were difficult moments, strange moments, but they help you to mature. To be stronger.a
Guess Who’s Back
a From the first I day I came back, after all that happened, he gave me a lot of confidence, told me I would play, to relax and keep doing what I had done before,a he said. a He is a joker, makes a lot of jokes. Now and again he likes to do something so that there is a good mood. But we talk mostly about football.a
De Gea also had heaps of praise for the Old Trafford faithful and their love for him. a The first game I returned, after all that had happened, was impressive,a he said. a The way Old Trafford received me, it made the hairs stand up. Ita s very difficult to describe what that day was like. I really appreciate it.”
Real Madrid’s Loss Is United’s Gain
Manchester United fans were ecstatic when De Gea’s transfer to Madrid fell through at the last moment on Transfer Deadline day, especially considering the poor performances by backup Sergio Romero. The Spaniard has, once again, started putting in the kind of performances that have seen him become regarded as one of the best goalkeepers around right now.
The cash plus exchange deal for De Gea with Costa Rican keeper, Keylor Navas, was worth 29 million pounds, but fell through after the paperwork was not filed in time which prompted de Gea to sign a lucrative new 4 year contract with the Red Devils. Now he’s back to pulling off amazing saves at Old Trafford and the fans are going crazy for him.
