Most Promising Footballers in the World - No.2

Next up on our list, is another promising goalkeeper in a long line of Spanish number ones...

David De Gea

Club: Athletico Madrid
Age: 19 – 7/11/1990
Position: Goalkeeper
Claim to fame: Club debut at 18, Europa League and Super Cup winner

There are not too many young goalkeepers in the World with as much promise and potential as this 19 year old. He already made his debut aged just 18, and has since been a mainstay between the sticks for Athletico’s successful Europa League campaign, while his budding early career echo’s similarities to that of Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

He has been linked as a long term replacement for the outgoing Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar, but a move abroad seems a little premature at this moment in time. With the abundance of quality Spanish goalkeepers, it would seem he is already showing the credentials to become the international number one very soon.
