In the Extra Time section of Gazzetta, David de Gea has given some interesting answers to some questions about the players he most admires and what he plans for the future. The young keeper is likely to complete a deal with Manchester United after the European U-21 Championships.

“I’d love to play until I’m 40, like Van der Sar,” he said. “You need to take care of yourself an awful lot to do that. Respect.”

He also had praise for another former United goalkeeper, claiming that Peter Schmeichel was his idol growing up and, in his opinion, the best goalie ever.
