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.

Lovely stuff.
