A bold, decisive signing as Atletico Madrid’s David De Gea is signed as a £17m replacement for the retiring Edwin Van der Sar. The transfer fee for the 20 year old sensation is the highest paid by an English club for a goalie.
A changing of the guard? Not really. De Gea according to Sir Alex has all the leadership and organizational attributes of Van der Sar and the video clip above seems to show he has the reflexes as well. This is an investment in a young goalie that will pay off in the years to come.
