David de Gea Quintana is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Manchester United and the Spain national team. He is regarded by many as the best goalkeeper in the world.

Born in Madrid, De Gea began his career aged 13 with Atlético Madrid and rose through the academy system at the club before making his senior debut in 2009. After being made Atlético's first-choice goalkeeper, he helped the team win both the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup in 2010. His performances attracted the attention of Manchester United, whom he joined in June 2011 for £18.9 million, a British record for a goalkeeper at the time.

Since joining Manchester United, De Gea has made over 300 appearances and won a Premier League title, an FA Cup, a League Cup, three Community Shields and the UEFA Europa League. For three consecutive seasons from 2013–14 to 2015–16, he was elected as United's Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, the first player in the award's history to win on three successive occasions.

De Gea was the captain for the Spain under-21 national team that won the European Championship in 2011 and 2013, and also competed in the 2012 Olympics. He made his debut for the senior team in 2014 and was selected for that year's World Cup. He was tipped by many to become the successor to Iker Casillas as Spain's long-term goalkeeper.

The barcadogs said that Ronaldo was only good at tap in, and the Madridiots disrespected his exit not regarding his brilliance. And now not even VAR and referees could continue the tap in. Don't ask me my club you should know #GGMU

I am your fan from Vietnam. You are the best GK. Love you 💕

But £350k a week ain't enough to hold you in Manchester United. Why David? Why?

Bro first er goal ta save korte parta tumi. Bepar na. Maaf koira dilam. Joldi contract renewal koro.

Alison is better GK than you.

Proud to have you!!! Sign a 10 year contract then pls 🙏😍😁

Sign the contract you deserve to be captain for United

The only player worth 500k a week, get it done Utd 🙈

Family planning of the decade!!!! When a lady touches his gloves she goes 10yrs barren!!!

No1 GK in the world ❤️💪

Dalot better than Sanchez

Already a legend for Utd at such a young age. Never thought anyone would surpass 'The Great Dane' but I believe you have. Stick with Utd for the Ole revolution
