United boss Ferguson hints at done deal for Atletico Madrid stopper De Gea

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea is close to joining the Premier League champions.

United are in the market for a new stopper with Dutchman Edwin van der Sar set to bring the curtain down on his long career after this Saturday's Champions League final.

Sportsmail revealed last month that the Old Trafford money men had agreed a £17.8million deal for the talented 20-year-old custodian who is seen as Spain's biggest rival to long-standing No 1 Iker Casillas.

Sure he's not Van der Sar's son...?
