David De Gea: Spaniard wants Man United to appoint him club captain

Man United Solskjaer Keane

Solskjaer and Keane played together for nine years at Old Trafford

"I've got no doubts he could be an important player for us at the end of the season".

David De Gea has revealed his desire to be appointed Manchester United captain with new football season set to kick off next month.

The Spanish shot-stopper has won the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League during his spell at Manchester United.

"It's quite easy to tell when someone's got something about them as a player; all four of them have got different qualities that one day or even very soon will make a United player and I think Mason's very close", Shaw said.

Luke Shaw has said Manchester United's campaign was so bad it ruined his holiday, but the defender is determined to make life more hard for Manchester City and Liverpool next season.

"We have to improve a lot".

Last season saw him concede an astounding 54 goals, surprising mostly because he's been so good for so long (He conceded 28 and 29 the previous two seasons, posting a wild 18 clean sheets in 2017-18).

Paul Pogba, who has been linked with a move away from old Trafford is also a major candidate for the position.

David De Gea has finally agreed a new deal with Manchester United, Daily Mail reports.

Ashley Young was the captain of Man United last season and the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unsure whom the leader of the team would be for next campaign.

Perhaps appropriately, Shaw chose the launch of a new range of sunglasses - only Manchester United could have an official vision partner - to predict a brighter future.

While new signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James have settled in well, some fans have questioned why United have not done more transfer business yet.
