Picture of the 1.92 m (6 ft 4 in) tall Spanish goalkeeper of Manchester United

Meet one of the very best goalies in the world. This guy is an absolute machine between the sticks. He is a delightful lad as well, hence his nickname amongst his fellow United players. He was born in the Spanish capital Madrid and he played for Atletico Madrid's youth-teams. Eventually he made his debut for the first team of Atleti in 2009. It wasn't long before his remarkable talent was seen by all of the big European clubs. Eventually Manchester United was the team that proved to be interested the most, they bought the goalie for 18.9 Million Pound. He was going to be the successor of the legendary goalie Edwin van der Sar of the Netherlands. It is very safe to say that he has succeeded in that and he has perhaps even eclipsed the Dutch goalie at Man United. He has quickly become the best keeper in the world, according to many analists and specialists. He has been making it to the team of the season almost every year and he is seen as the best keeper in the Premier League bar none. He is known for his stunning reflexes, great saves and composed play. Ofcourse he is the number one keeper of Spain as well and he will be for some time to come.
