David de Gea leaves Manchester United after 12 years

David de Gea went to Manchester United whilst they were still under Sir Alex Ferguson’s command, and he leaves as the goalkeeper with the most games played in the history of the club. He is also the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in United’s history, with 190.

De Gea has become a legend of the club, winning one Premier League, one FA Cup, two League Cups, three Community Shields and a Europa League.

The Spaniard penned a farewell letter, in which he thanked the club, the fans as well as Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson was the only name mentioned in the letter, with the shot-stopper showing his gratitude to the person who signed him.

De Gea ended last season badly, with several mistakes costing his side. United are now working on wrapping up the signing of Inter shot-stopper André Onana, who played under United boss Erik ten Hag at Dutch giants Ajax.
