The week saw Manchester United finally wrap up the signing of the Spanish U21 keeper, David De Gea.

De Gea is expected to go straight into the starting eleven and will be looking to fill the boots of a certain Edwin van der Sar, a huge task in itself.

Patrice Evra, has given the red-top press a comment or two relating to De Gea`s arrival. See what you think,

“David is a good keeper.”

“We don`t know him yet, but we`ll give him a nice welcome.”

“It`s never easy to replace a big keeper like Van der Sar and I`m a little bit sad that Edwin has retired, but De Gea is the future now.”

“He has to work hard because it`s not easy to do the job Edwin did, but he`ll be given every opportunity.”


If the defence remains solid in front of him, it`ll allow DeGea to settle in far more quickly.

But Evra, keen to add a few words, had this to say about our other two acquisitions – Ashley Young and Phil Jones, further commenting,

“They are great signings.”

“I think they`ll be important and I`m very confident about the future. After we lost the Champions League final I said we had lost just a game.”

“But I`m confident about the future, especially with our great new signings.”

“We hope to retain the title but also to win the Champions League.”


Glad to see we`re aiming as high as ever!
