Spain and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is looking forward to working under Louis van Gaal after facing the current Netherlands Coach at the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

De Gea is part of the Spain squad for the tournament and La Roja get the defence of their trophy underway on Friday against van Gaal’s Oranje. De Gea revealed that he is eager to tap into the experience of the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.

“He has won everything as a coach. He’s very good and I think he's going to bring a lot to Manchester United,” De Gea said. “He will bring important and innovative ideas and I think he's going to be very good for us.

“He's going to help us a lot because he's going to bring a different style of play. England is a great place to play football, the fans respect you a lot. It's wondrous,” the former Atletico Madrid man continued.

De Gea also admitted he had been in contact with United teammate and Netherlands striker Robin van Persie prior to the meeting of their countries. “I've sent him the odd message. He's a great player and we'll have to follow him closely. I hope that he has a quiet game,” De Gea said.

The 23-year-old moved to United from Atletico in 2011, having played fewer than 90 games for Los Colchoneros. De Gea has gone on to play more than 130 times for United, winning the Premier League title in 2012-13.
