Player : David De Gea
From : Atletico Madrid
To : Manchester United
Transfer Fee : £18 million
Since Manchester United's goalkeeper Edwin van der Saar announced that he would be taking off his gloves for the last time, United have been in the market for a top-class replacement.
Sir Alex Ferguson has not had the greatest of luck when signing goalkeepers, with a series of failures before van der Saar.
But it is hoped that new signing David De Gea will not prove to be a high-profile flop.
De Gea has come at a very high price and is extremely young for a top-quality stopper, being only 20 years old.
He has also played only 84 times for Atletico Madrid but does boast Champions League experience.
Certainly all eyes will be on the young Spaniard, and his start will be the key to his future. A good one and he may well be at United for many years to come; a poor one and he may be on the bench sooner than he or United would have liked.
