David de Gea was enjoying the sun in Cheshire as the Manchester United goalkeeper celebrated being named Player of the Season for the third year running by the club's fans.
The Spaniard, who was mighty close to leaving the club for Real Madrid last summer, went for a spot of lunch with his girlfriend Edurne Garcia in Altrincham as he took a break from his bid to help United back into the Champions League next season.
De Gea was arguably the key factor in United reaching the top four last campaign, single handedly rescuing Louis van Gaal's side on several occasions.
And the 25-year-old will have to be on top form if Van Gaal is to guide United to Europe's top table again, a feat that could save his job at Old Trafford.
Speaking after picking up the Sir Matt Busby statuette for the third consecutive year, De Gea said: “It is difficult for me to say anything; winning this trophy three years in a row is amazing. I am really happy, it's an honour to receive this and I want to thank the fans, who are the best in the world. It is amazing to win this award three times in a row. I want to thank everyone one and we will keep fighting.”...
