Manchester United sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea on a 5-year contract

David De Gea Quintana has completed a £20 Million transfer from Atletico Madrid to Premier League Champions Manchester United, penning a 5-year deal. The 20-year-old Spanish goalkeeper will replace retired Dutch shot-stopper Edwin Van Der Sar, and De Gea has already been tipped to become Spain’s no.1 in years to come. De Gea becomes The Red Devil’s 3rd summer signing, bringing Sir Alex Ferguson’s total bill to nearly £60 Million.

The 6ft 4in Spaniard recently assisted his nation’s Under-21 side win the U-21 UEFA European Championships, having won the same competition with Spain U-17’s in 2007, and finishing runner-up in the U-17 FIFA World Cup that year also. Last year, De Gea helped Atletico Madrid overcome Fulham in the Europa League, before beating Inter Milan in the UEFA Super Cup. De Gea has kept 24 clean sheets for Atletico in 84 games played.
U-21 Euro 2011 winner, Daivd De Gea
De Gea – seen as Europe’s most promising young goalkeeper – agreed personal terms with United this week, and underwent a medical in Manchester on Monday. The initial fee is set around the £18 Million mark, and although ‘undisclosed’, it is reportedly going to rise to £20 Million in bonus instalments. Former Reds goalie Alex Stepney was among the first to hail Sir Alex’s replacement for Van Der Sar in David De Gea. 

The 13-timed capped Spanish U-21 talent told MUTV: “I feel very proud and I can’t wait to start playing here. When a club the size of Manchester United comes in for you it obviously makes you very, very happy. I saw their interest as an extra motivation to work even harder to show off my ability. It’s a great privilege to be part of a club like United and I’m keen to do my best and show what I can do.” Welcome David, and good luck !

Fantastic signing great keeper will do great in the future and now! Next get sneijder, thiago, sanchez and lassana diarra, then we may win the champs league instead of Barcelona.



Wed, 29 Jun 2011 7:16:24 pm

according to the mail fabregas will be joining barca and that means nasri will leave arsenal and 20m bid is to much to turn dwn for a player with 1year left on his contract
all we need nxt is lass diara and thiago alcantara
poss sell nani carrick Gibson oshea kusack and poss berbatov and bring in a new striker to back up our strikers or giv wellbeck Owen and macheda a chance. but we may buy a striker

Sean 123 mufc

Wed, 29 Jun 2011 9:53:31 pm

Personal terms with Nasri have been agreed, now the two clubs only have to agree a fee.

Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:00:05 pm

As always thanks for the good information Sean.



Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:36:34 pm

Man c have just bet for him too



Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:48:12 pm

yeah apparently personal terms hav been agreed and like Sean said a price has to be reached. I think were gettin a better player in nasri than sneijder nasri is only 23 and proven in the premiership
now let’s buy lassana diarra he’s as important to us as a creative midfielder
lass diarra will do all the running and the tackling so nasri can go and create goals for chicho n rooney
wat bout buying another striker as back up a senior striker someone who could unlock a defence if needed



Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:50:33 pm

Two Medicals booked in for next week for man utd believed to be modic and nasri strong sources

Man city bid 20million for Nasri. Hope he doesn’t go.



Thu, 30 Jun 2011 12:35:15 pm

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced of prising Samir Nasri from Arsenal THIS WEEK.

The Mirror says United are ready to make their move for Nasri with a view to sealing a deal before pre-season training begins next week.

Arsenal could find it hard to resist a £20million offer for a player in the final year of his contract at the Emirates.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already made it clear Nasri will not be allowed to run his contract down and leave on a free as midfielder Mathieu Flamini did three years ago.

Wenger has been trying to persuade Nasri that the club’s six-year spell without trophies will come to an end next season.

Nasri would provide a simple solution to United boss Sir Alex Ferguson’s search for a new midfielder.

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 5:10:52 pm

sky sports news says nasri on way to Manchester to talk to city after they make 20mill bid could this be another big name player that we’ve been linked with going to another club


Sean 123 Mufc

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 5:29:35 pm

sky sports news made a mistake first they said he is close in on CITY no it says interest and they did say were linging up a bid and which Manchester club is he going to ;so wait and see



Thu, 30 Jun 2011 5:47:43 pm

Can’t wait to hear d arrival of Nasri



Thu, 30 Jun 2011 6:19:20 pm

My united frds let s get united add me on facebook with [email protected] also follow me on twitter tlash02 thanks all united we stand…………



Thu, 30 Jun 2011 6:38:11 pm

we need to move quick on this one guys
the good thing we got is that evra is really close friend of nasris so hopefully he will talk him into joinin us instead of the shit
can’t city jus target a player for themselves
we wanted Sanchez n then they want him we want nasri now they do pricks
I think nasri and diarra will be our signings forget modric I think nasri is much better player than modric
