There hasn’t been much to celebrate for the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern this season. After a trophy-laden campaign last term, the Red Devils have been markedly quieter this season, though there is still a chance that they could win the FA Cup in late May.
Nonetheless, whilst they haven’t won any trophies, there still have been some good outcomes from the season.
The emergence of Romelu Lukaku has finally given them a reliable attacker for the long-term going forward, whilst the likes of Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic have also improved the team this term.
However, without a doubt, the most important member of the team this season has been David De Gea.
He has gotten better every year over the last few seasons, and this campaign has been no different. From the first game, he has regularly saved Man Utd points and goals, and that goes to show just how important he is to this team.
Now, though, it is the Spaniard that is being the benefactor of his fine form – with the Spaniard winning the Golden Glove after earning the most clean sheets in the English top flight this season.
Unsurprisingly, fans have been pretty loud about this over the last day or so, but the players have been getting in on the action too. Juan Mata recently took to Twitter to respond to the news by claiming that De Gea is the ‘Best in the world’ – a case that certainly isn’t being argued against by the Man Utd faithful on the platform.
Best in the world. https://t.co/mMX0CTQ1rH

Fans have responded to Mata’s message in their droves, and it’s fair to say that they are loving what he has had to say.

He's worth at least 12 points a season, with a lesser keeper God only knows where we would be. Not 2nd that's for certain. #legend
