I haven't seen much of this guy - but I don't think there can be many keepers more talented than de Gea
One turned 19 in may - played roughly 40 league matches in Belgium and never played for Belgium at any level. Is being bought as a back-up for Petr Cech
The other one is 1.5 years older - is bought to be the first-team goalkeeper for one of Europes top 5 sides. 57 league matches in La Liga. Almost 50 international matches for Spain at various levels. Also won a European Cup
I am not saying Courtois wont be a brilliant goalkeeper - I don't know - but in terms of talent - all statistics indicate that De Gea is in a league of his own.
