It’s official people – Manchester United have a new No. 1.

Four days after being crowned European U21 Champions with Spain, David De Gea has signed a five-year deal at United – moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid for somewhere around £17 million, a fee which pushes Sir Alex’s summer spending beyond the £50 million mark.

De Gea, who passed a medical at Carrington yesterday, 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.”

What say you United fans? Is De Gea the man you’re willing place your faith in to successfully replace VDS betwixt the sticks?

    So happy with this signing, perhaps more excited about this guy than Jones and Young.

    Still, we need a CM!

    Outstanding goalkeeper, i’m more than happy he can command our defence for years to come and be at the helm of the best club in the world for the next 20 years. Van De Gea!

  3. Kevin says:

    I just signed for one of the biggest clubs in the world, I’ll just wear this shit t-shirt, who cares

  4. CFC_Jay says:

    Young goalkeeper with great potential……..just wondering if playing for such a big club between the sticks maybe be too much too soon…..would staying at Athletico for another season or two give him that little bit more maturity? time will tell…….

  18. chimpo says:

    ignoring mr angry for a second, im with cfc jay on this- hes a great talent but i think hes too young to be pushed into that role- a few mistakes and his head could go

  19. BARRYOKE says:

    I agree with Mr Angry Is Gay…It seems that Arsenal/Chelsea/City Fans cant accept that we are the most successful Fair (top of the fair play lge of big clubs)side…If you watch the games again MR ANGRY. you will see we had the FA and everyone else against us for example..Rooney being banned (against City)for swearing and the FA Chairman Being the City Chairman..surprise surprise..And we still won the league by 9 points and with the most ENGLISHMEN IN THE TOP FOUR.But re De Gea..I think he will make a few mistakes at the start but turn into one of the worlds top keepers..

  20. Mr. Angry says:

    @ BARRYOKE

    stop talkin through your arsehole,, faggott
