We All Have A Favourite De Gea Save, Now The Man United Stopper’s Picked His

Manchester United’s David de Gea may have struggled early on at United and looked to be leaving just last summer, but the Spaniard has always popped up with world-class saves no matter what his personal situation was.

Alex Ferguson was the one who took a punt on the young man at first, who was clearly targeted by opposing managers for corners and other set-pieces over his supposed vulnerability and physical ineptitude.

The ex-Atletico Madrid man has now become a real presence in any situation in and around the box however, and has never lost his sixth sense when it comes to knowing where the ball is going to end up.

There are literally hundreds of saves which we can all remember the 25-year-old making, but the man himself has now chosen his greatest one, and it’s easy to see why.

Speaking to manutd.com, De Gea picked a superb save he made from his former adversary and now club teammate Juan Mata during a game against Chelsea in 2012.

With his fellow countryman’s free-kick looking destined for the top corner, De Gea scrambled across his line to stop what was a definite goal (watch below).
