“I think United needed a coach like him”
David de Gea
De Gea, 25, was close to a Bernabeu arrival last summer only for an administrative error to prevent the deal from being finalised.
However, the arrival of Jose Mourinho appears to have changed his mind with United’s No.1 giving his stamp of approval.
He told Cadena Ser radio: “I think United needed a coach like him – a winning coach with personality. United’s decision to sign Mourinho is the right move.”
