Man Utd signing De Gea confident handling increased profile

Incoming Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is confident of handling his increasing profile.

The Atletico Madrid No1 is on the brink of joining United.

He said: "From the first moment people started to recognise me and fame has arrived, I've tried really hard to keep the same people around me, do precisely the same things as before and to stay grounded thanks to my family.

"Being praised, no it doesn't worry me. One day you are being praised and the next people are on top of you.

"If you keep your feet on the ground you'll never get above your station."
