David de Gea sets superb club record for Manchester United, surpassing Schmeichel’s earlier clean sheet
The Spaniard joined Old Trafford in 2011 and created part of a Premier League title-winning side under Sir Alex Ferguson. Now he has created history by helping his team secure a 2-0 victory over Newcastle at Wembley on Sunday.
A win against the Magpies ensured De Gea kept his 181st clean sheet for his club, which indicates a new record for United. He surpassed the legendary Danish shot-stopper to make him the second on the list. Notably, the 32-year-old De Gea still has many outings left.
The amazing record has set the football world filled with ecstasy, leaving football fans super excited.
What’s coming up?
Will David de Gea leave Manchester United this summer? Will the player not have a long-term stay in his current club? There are such speculations coming up recently as De Gea’s deal is about to be concluded.
With his contract expiring this summer, there are questions about De Gea’s long-term future at the club. However, the player has spoken about his willingness to stay at the club on a regular basis and extend the contract for his stay at Old Trafford.
United already has one trophy in the bag, and they’re yet to play three more games in this season. They’ll take on the FA Cup fifth-round game against West Ham on Wednesday, hoping De Gea to claim another clean sheet- before then taking in a journey to Liverpool.
