David de Gea has sent an emotional goodbye message to Manchester United fans, confirming his departure from Old Trafford. His contract expired at the end of June, with no new deal agreed despite talks that took place throughout the season.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Inter Milan keeper Andre Onana.
”I would like to express my unwavering gratitude and appreciation for the love from the last 12 years. We’ve achieved a lot since my dear Sir Alex Ferguson brought me to this club. I took incredible pride every time I pulled on this shirt, to lead the team, to represent this institution, the biggest club in the world was an honour only bestows upon a few lucky footballers.”
”It’s been an unforgettable and successful period since I came here. I didn’t think from leaving Madrid as a young boy we would achieve what we did together.”
De Gea won the Premier League in his second season with the while he also won the League Cup, FA Cup and Europa League. De Gea arrived to United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, making 545 appearance for the English Premier League club, securing 190 clean sheets, which is a record for a keeper.
