David de Gea gets 'The Wall' front page homage from Norwegian newspaper

Manchester United's David de Gea was the talk of the town after his incredible display in the 3-0 Premier League win over Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon - and now he has been given an extra special accolade.

Norway's largest newspaper, VG, put out a special front page on Monday morning in homage to the Spaniard who has arguably been Louis van Gaal's best player for this season and for most of last season under David Moyes.

Brendan Rodgers looked on in disbelief as first Raheem Sterling saw golden opportunities turned aside by the former Atletico Madrid youngster, then Mario Balotelli had three very good chances stopped by some very accomplished goalkeeping.

It did look like De Gea was unbeatable against the Anfield club, even if the Liverpool finishing was abysmal, and VG have taken the opportunity to use the 'wall' analogy by using a famous rock and roll album cover.

'The Wall' was a seminal album released in 1982 by British rockers Pink Floyd and its cover, simply the words 'Pink Floyd The Wall' daubed across a brick background, is one of the most well-recognised album artworks ever.

VG decided not to deviate too far from the original theme and felt simply replacing 'Pink Floyd' with 'David de Gea' was a fitting enough tribute - check out a Tweet with the picture below.

Problems Need Solving

Manchester United fans will be delighted with the performances and recognition their number one is providing, but his excellence makes the current situation with his contract all the more worrying.

De Gea as 18 months left on his deal and there has been no progress over an improved agreement. Real Madrid have reportedly been keeping a close eye on things as they see the 24-year-old as the natural successor to Iker Casillas at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It looks as though De Gea may be close to ousting the veteran from the Spanish national team in the near future and the continued absence of an extension will have everyone at Old Trafford extremely concerned.
