De Gea is half the age of VDS but I think is a good replacement

Nice one, Ashley Young next.

No thanks. Nani is the much better player having the most assists in the premier League as well as scoring more goals than him.

Right but Nani is naturally a right winger, while Young is better on the left. No harm in having the both of them.

I just can't see him getting in the team above Nani. Unless he moves Nani into the middle which he has done before.

Did you remember when we almost ran out of Wingers and Nani was the only one left? Young could be a great back up or squad players when do squad rotation

i dont know bout ashley young, everyones saying utd will sign him but i dont see why, nani on the left and valencia on the right and he wont play behind a striker because rooney plays there. we need an attacking midfielder and we just got de gea.

18 mil is a lot for 20 yr old keeper whos only been playing for a year and a half in the 1st team. never seen him play hope he's good.

RedDevils1978d ago

hes a great keeper, great 1 on 1, Good reflexes, great diving and great distribution, although I'm not sure about him dealing with crosses though, but in set piece he could shaky sometimes

zootang1977d ago

One scary stat. He let the most goals in from outside of the box than any other keeper in La Liga
