David De Gea has again reiterated his admiration for Edwin Van der Sar, but now, after signing for Manchester United, hopes to match the contribution made by the Dutchman to our club.

“In my opinion Edwin has been the best goalkeeper in the world whilst here at United,” De Gea told MUTV. “I hope to emulate him and spend a great number of years here. Hopefully I will equal or even surpass the performance and contribution he made to the club. Of course everybody wants to win the Premier League. That’s no different from me – I’d like to do that but also aiming to win the Champions League is realistic. That is what we’re going to do.
