David de Gea, the 32-Year-Old, with a 12-year tenure at United and 545 games under his belt, shared a heartfelt farewell message to Manchester United supporters on social media.
Having started his career at Atletico Madrid, De Gea joined United in 2011 for a transfer fee of £18.9 million.
Reflecting on his time at the club, he expressed immense gratitude for the love he received during the past 12 years, highlighting the numerous achievements made since his arrival under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Wearing the club’s shirt and leading the team filled De Gea with immense pride, representing the institution of the world’s largest club—an honor bestowed upon only a select few fortunate footballers.
The period at United has been unforgettable and successful, surpassing De Gea’s expectations since his departure from Madrid as a young boy.
However, now he feels it is the opportune moment to embark on a new challenge, pushing himself in fresh surroundings.
While bidding farewell, De Gea reassured that Manchester will forever hold a special place in his heart, as the city has played a significant role in shaping his journey, leaving an indelible mark on his life.
