Manchester United keeper is eager to impress and learn from new manager.
The Spanish youngster has cemented himself as Manchester United’s No.1 this season, with his impressive form helping his team reclaim the Premier League title from their “noisy neighbours” Manchester City.
De Gea was bought to the club by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011 to replace the retiring Edwin Van Der Sar for a British goalkeeping transfer record of £19m.
Though the young keeper may have had his critics in his first season at Old Trafford, he repaid Ferguson’s faith in his second term at the club by helping the Scott win one last league title before his retirement.
His performances this season also led to De Gea’s inclusion in the PFA Team Of The Year.
Such accolades have linked him with a move back to his native Spain, with rumours of interest from the likes of Barcelona, but De Gea has expressed his desire to remain in Manchester and work alongside Ferguson’s replacement in the Old Trafford dugout.
“We are saddened by the departure of Ferguson, but in comes another great coach with a different style of play, so we will try to follow along the same lines and with the same tone,” De Gea is reported as saying in The Mirror.
“It’s a shame that [Ferguson] went, he was great. But now we have a new coach in David Moyes, who we still don’t know. We’re all waiting to get back there and see how it is with him.
“I’m happy in Manchester,” he continued, “It has been a very good season…and [I] hope to be at United for many years.”
