Diego Forlan reveals he has advised David de Gea to join Manchester United – La Liga news

Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Forlan, has revealed that he has advised teammate David de Gea to join English giants, Manchester United. He stated that the young goalkeeper has a bright future and he would surely be in the right hands if he moves to England.

David de Gea has been heavily linked with a move to English Premier League champions, Manchester United, in this summer’s transfer window. Edwin Van der Sar is set to retire after playing his last match for the Red Devils, the UEFA Champions League final against Barcelona on Saturday.

Sir Alex Ferguson had admitted earlier this week that the player is close to put pen on paper and that the deal will be completed in the following week.

Forlan said that de Gea had asked him about the transfer to United and that he wanted advice regarding the situation. The Uruguayan, who played for Manchester United himself, claimed that it is the best place for the youngster to be and that he should go for it.

“David is a very good keeper with a bright future. He asked my advice about moving to United and we talked about it a lot,” the striker was quoted as saying in an interview.

The World Cup Golden Ball winner insisted that Sir Alex Ferguson is a legend and it is the best possible experience the 20-year old can get. He admitted that he did not have the best of times at Old Trafford but still the crowd was very supportive and behind him.

“It is a great place to experience as a player. The manager is a legend, the staff is all really good and the fans were always very supportive of me, even when I wasn't scoring,” he concluded.

David de Gea has made a total of 46 appearances for Los Rojiblancos and kept 24 clean sheets in the process. The goalkeeper could turn out to be a brilliant signing for the Red Devils as he has sufficient first-team experience at the highest level and is still young.
