The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper did the double as he received the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award, voted for by the supporters, and the Players’ Player of the Year prize for his impressive form this season.

De Gea picked up the supporters’ award after claiming 54 per cent of the vote, ahead of Wayne Rooney and Adnan Januzaj in second and third place respectively.

He said: “I want to thank the fans. From my very first day at the club, I have felt their love and I’m really happy. For them, we will try next season to do our best again.”

Just moments before, de Gea had also received the accolade of Players’ Player of the Year from his colleagues.

He said: “I’m really happy to win this honour. I’m very grateful.

“Sometimes it’s important for your team-mates to give you confidence and I think they’re some of the best team-mates you can have.

“I tried to do my best this year and I think it was my best season so far. I felt really good and confident. I will try to do the same for next season.”
