David de Gea has thanked Manchester United fans for a ‘special day’ after being overloaded with emotion following the announcement of his new deal.
After a long summer where De Gea decided to cower away from the media and remain silent instead of commenting on his future, the Spaniard is clearly relieved to be able to interact with fans once again.
De Gea may have been able to get the sun in Spain with Real Madrid but if there is one thing which he definitely wouldn’t have had it is such a close relationship with the fans.
United fans have stood behind De Gea right from day one. There were some ups and downs along the way but he was always afforded patience from the fans and that’s helped create a close relationship.

It was a very long summer for both De Gea and United’s fans but now that he can concentrate on his football again, everybody is excited to see him back in goal and hopefully he comes straight back in the team today.
