Revealed: David de Gea could leave Manchester United

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has revealed that he considered leaving Old Trafford and returning to Spain during his difficult first season at the club.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper joined the Red Devils from Atletico Madrid for £19m in 2011, who struggled to make an impact after making a high-profile mistakes in his early days at the club.

The Spaniard Keeper proved himself as a match-winner in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Everton, with two fine saves help the triumph for his side.

The former Atletico Madrid starlet told Sky Sports News, “It’s difficult when you get a lot of criticism like I did. But I kept strong and I always tried to remain positive.”

“Those early days were difficult for me and my family. But when you play for a big club like Manchester United [being criticised] is normal when you don’t play well.

“It was probably one of my best performances for Manchester United [on Sunday]. I was really happy about that. Games like that helps your confidence grow.”

De Gea has earned two clean sheets in six Premier League starts.
