David de Gea Net Worth 2022: How Much Is He Worth?

It’s argued that this Spaniard is the best goalkeeper in not just the Premier League, but the world. He’s so good that Real Madrid has been trying to snag him from the league for years. So far the Manchester United goalie has resisted, and United fans couldn’t be happier. Insert huge sigh of relief. Some players might adopt a pompous mindset if they were being sought after by a team like Real, and as it turns out, de Gea is definitely one of them. The goalkeeper has not been shy in acknowledging his skill level. Just last month, de Gea announced this was his best season yet, meanwhile, he said his teammates needed to be more consistent next season if they wanted to win the title. His stats do speak for him though, but what are his stats translated into monetary value. Let’s find out!

David de Gea Net Worth 2019: $17 Million

The 27-year old has a net worth estimated to be around $17 million as of 2018. He currently earns £350,000 per week for Manchester United.

He Wasn’t Always a Goalie


Born to wealthy parents on November 7, 1990, in Madrid, Spain, de Gea was a very spoiled child. With his father being a former goalkeeper and de Gea adopting a love for sports at a young age, he became involved with soccer. His parents sent him to one of the best youth academies in Spain, one that was affiliated with Atletico Madrid. Ironically he played every position but goalkeeper. It wasn’t until he was 14, that he switched. The 6 ft 4 player realized his height reduced his speed on the field, and since his father once played as a keeper, de Gea followed suit.

His Unique Entrance Into the Big Leagues


At only 17, de Gea was recruited by the Atletico Madrid senior team and signed his first professional contract with them. Following this at 19, during one of his matches for Atletico, Sir Alex Ferguson, the then manager of Manchester United scouted him. Sir Alex Ferguson had only missed one United game prior and it was for his son’s wedding. However, the United manager was certain he wanted de Gea on his team, so he missed his second United match and went instead to de Gea’s. In June 2011, the keeper officially joined Manchester United for £18.9 million.

Awards Galore


Ever since he was a child, de Gea has been used to getting trophies. This hasn’t changed. The keeper has seen a significant amount of success during his time so far with United. He’s been selected as goalkeeper for PFA Team of the Year literally five years in a row! On December 2, 2017, he equaled the Premier League’s record for most saves in a single game with 14 saves against Arsenal. De Gea has been the only United player to win the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award and has won the Player’s Player of the Year trophy three times.
This past week he was nominated for the EA Sports Premier League Player of the Season award for 2017/2018. He’s also the expected recipient of the Golden Glove award, which is given to the goalie who has the most clean sheets in a single season. So far, de Gea has 17. Despite the league coming to an end, you’ll still be able to see de Gea during the World Cup. He’ll be playing for Spain’s National Team, which he’s been the keeper for since 2014.
