Man United keeper David De Gea sends boots to super fan who dressed like him
As if it were even possible, David De Gea has further endeared himself to the Manchester United faithful by sending a pair of boots to one of his biggest fans.
Ahead of United’s crunch tie against Liverpool on Saturday, seven-year-old Rylan Heaney got dressed up as his favourite Spanish shot-stopper.

De Gea happened across the photo and was so impressed by the attention to detail — the beard, the top-knot — that he decided to send Rylan a special thank-you.
“You look great! There’s just something missing,” the United goalkeeper tweeted before promising to send his young supporter a complimentary pair of boots to complete the outfit.
