De Gea: In His Own Words
"I feel very proud and I can't wait to start playing. 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."
De Gea: In The Words Of Others
"He's a young goalkeeper, very quick, good composure, presence and an outstanding replacement for Van der Sar. We were looking for
the same type of qualities as Edwin, because the one great quality Edwin always had was his composure and organisational ability."
Sir Alex Ferguson
"He's outstanding and really good. He's a very tall guy and he looks like a sausage, but he really is a great goalkeeper."
