Ander Herrera has spoken highly of Manchester United’s goalie David de Gea. The two are great friends and after De Gea’s transfer to Real Madrid fell through at the last minute, Herrera has admitted he’s glad to have his friend with him in Manchester.

He’s a genius. Purely on talent, I’ve never seen someone like him and we are lucky to have him. The talent he has, very few have it in the world and David is one of them. It’s a blessing to have him close, and hopefully it will be for a long time.
