Wayne Rooney: 'David de Gea is the best keeper in the world'

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney believes that David de Gea is the best keeper in the world following his excellent season for the Red Devils.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has hailed David de Gea as the "best keeper in the world" following his recent displays for the Red Devils.

The Spaniard put in an excellent performance to guide Louis van Gaal's men to victory over Liverpool as he made several crucial saves, and Rooney is adamant that the 24-year-old will only continue to improve at the club.

"He's the best keeper in the world," Rooney is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. "He's shown great form and some of his saves are incredible.

"Edwin van der Sar had the best years of his career when he was with us in his late 30s so David has a great future ahead of him. If he keeps working hard the way he is, he will have many years at the top."

United are reportedly ready to offer De Gea a new contract with the club to secure his long-term future amid speculation linking him with a move away from Old Trafford.
