Man Utd delighted with De Gea

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes that in David De Gea he has already found a ready made replacement for Edwin van der Sar. United completed the signing of the goalkeeper for 18m GBP last month.

De Gea has already been showing his abilities in preseason friendlies and impressed Ferguson.

"Replacing Edwin van der Sar is very difficult," Ferguson said. "He was a great goalkeeper. But the benefit we have with De Gea is that he is only 20. The qualities that stood out for us are his great composure and use of the ball. He is quick and agile."
