7. David De Gea (Manchester United and Spain)
David De Gea moved to Man United from Atletico Madrid three years ago, and since then he has grown from strength to strength. His recent sordid transfer saga aside, De Gea has had perhaps the season of his life last season. The best player for a Manchester United side in shambles, he single handedly saved his team from the blushes last season on many occasions. No wonder they were so desperate to keep the 24 year old this year! He’s also worked himself into reckoning into the Spanish set up, where he is seen as the heir to Iker Casillas. His agility, despite his height, is what makes him one of the best at the job.
