David de Gea curls a perfect free-kick into the far corner

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has shown that he is not just good at stopping goals, he can score them pretty well too. And that too from a free-kick! Move over Wayne Rooney, let De Gea take the free-kicks going forward.

The Spaniard, who is reportedly on his way out of Old Trafford and moving to Real Madrid in the summer, just gave his manager Louis van Gaal a little more reason to keep him at the club. He was part of a free-kick challenge video that involved his United teammates Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, where De Gea’s sublime set-piece gave the Red Devils’ representatives the win.

The former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper stepped up confidently and curled the ball over the wall and right into the far corner, leaving the goalkeeper stranded. The video also involves a crossbar challenge, which was won for the United players by Angel Di Maria, whose Rabona attempt landed plush on the woodwork.
