We’ve achieved a lot since my dear Sir Alex Ferguson brought me to this club. I took incredible pride everytime 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,” said David de Gea
According to the Spaniard, it is now high time that he undertakes a new challenge but Manchester United will forever remain in his heart.
