That is a large fee for a goalkeeper, but De Gea is arguably worth it.  He has been phenomenal for United in the Premier League this season, saving the Ruby Devils numerous points with some scenic displays.

Without De Gea, United’south bid for Champions League football next season would have ended some time ago.

He has come a long manner since his nervy and mistake-ridden first season at Old Trafford in 2011-12, and he is now arguably one of the all-time keepers in the world.

He has certainly been the all-time goalkeeper in the Premier League this term, as indicated past his inclusion in the PFA Squad of the Year:

United will not desire to see De Gea leave Old Trafford in the summer. Indeed, they are likely hoping he will stay for many years to come.

Bleacher Report’s Stan Collymore believes Van Gaal’s first flavour in accuse at United has been a success and that they can go on and challenge for the title next season:

However, without De Gea, that might not be the case.

Information technology will probable be hard for the Madrid-born De Gea to resist the lure of Los Blancos. He started his career at Atletico Madrid and surely has an eventual render to his native Espana in listen.

Real volition pursue De Gea mercilessly, every bit he looks the perfect replacement for the failing Casillas, and, unfortunately for United, Los Blancos unremarkably get their homo.
