'If It's Football, It's Vital'


Although pen hasn`t been put to paper yet, it`s widely accepted that David de Gea will be between the posts at Old Trafford next season.

The twenty year old Spanish keeper, currently starring for Spain in the European U21 Championships in Denmark, has made that perfectly clear with some clear references to succeeding Edwin van der Sar in the tabloid press, remarking about matching the standards of the Dutchman,

"The fact they are thinking of me as a replacement for such a great goalkeeper as Van der Sar is great."

"Let`s hope I can play like Van der Sar at his age."

"To do it I`d need strength, luck and to take good care of my body because football consumes you. But let`s hope so."

It looks like De Gea is angling after a lengthy United career then!

This is reassuring especially when you take into consideration he was still caught in two minds before the tournament. De Gea has got the ability to sufficiently replace Van Der Sar but the potential to be even better. The sooner we wrap up the deal the better. Douglas Costa next please.

Looking forward to when the deal is finally announced. I think he could be the best keeper in the league for the next 10 years at least.

Good signing, should be our no 1 for at least a decade, now it's time to sign some central midfielders and no, not Charlie Adam.
