David de Gea has been United’s mainstay in goal this season being the only goalkeeper to make any league appearances for the club. He joined Manchester United on the 29th June 2011 for a fee of around £18,900,000 from Atletico Madrid. After a rocky start in the league, the Spaniard has since gone on to develop into one of the worlds leading goalkeepers.
