Schmeichel: De Gea must step up

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has told David de Gea that he must "step up a level" in order to make a success of his reported move to Old Trafford.

• Uncertainty over De Gea move
• De Gea to join

De Gea, 20, is expected to join United in the near future as a replacement for Edwin van der Sar - although the Atletico Madrid player has shunned suggestions a deal has already been agreed.

Concerns have been raised that De Gea, who is 20 years younger than Van der Sar, has enough experience to follow in the Dutchman's footsteps - and Schmeichel has done nothing to quell these fears.

"De Gea has done very well at Atletico, but now he has to step up a level because he is not just signing for any old team, he is signing for Manchester United," Schmeichel said.

"This is not just by chance, Ferguson does not sign anyone like that - when he signs someone it is because he has followed them for a long time. When he arrives in July, Ferguson will tell him everything he needs to know."

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror suggests that Van der Sar will be first to collect the European Cup if United triumph on his farewell appearance at Wembley on Saturday.
