The Manchester United shot stopper has said that playing with the Red Devils has transformed him into Captain America
The Spain international arrived at Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid for a lot of money five years back as a skinny youngster who had the whole world ahead of him.
Since then, from humble beginnings, the Spaniard has become an impregnable keeper for United and says that his physical transformation is akin to that of Captain America who transformed into an elite soldier from a scrawny little wannabe Army beret.
After the first six months to life in England where he made a lot of costly errors, De Gea has now become one of the best goalkeepers in the game today.
While talking to the club’s official website, De Gea said that he became like Captain America in just a year before adding that he did a lot of gym and pulled a lot iron to transform himself.
“No, I still do the programme, although not as much as before. It is more of a reduced programme now but certainly I did a lot of gym work at the start and it did have a big impact.”
Now the player has settled in very well in the red side of Manchester and is definitely one of bigger stars at the club.
