Watch: Man Utd Pre-Season 'Rondo' Shows Just How Good David De Gea's Feet Are
By Mikey Traynor

It's well known that David De Gea is a goalkeeper that is excellent with the ball at his feet, as part of the reason he has become established as one of the finest players in the world in his position is his distribution and ability to deal with a backpass.

If there was any doubt as to how good the Spaniard was in control of the ball, then footage of a 'rondo' - a training exercise that's known as piggy-in-the-middle in some parts - from Man Utd's pre-season in America will put an end to that.

In the clip, De Gea (purple bib at our south-west of the circle) first pulls off a flip-flap before ruthlessly nutmegging his fellow shot-stopper Joel Pereira.

What's incredible is that despite the presence of Pogba, Rashford, and Martial, it's the goalkeeper that's taking the piss out of people with tricks.

Roasted.

There's nothing footballers love more than a nutmeg in training.

Have a look again and keep an eye out for Jesse Lingard's reaction, De Gea being briefly terrified of Phil Jones charging at him is also a highlight.

Goalkeepers participate in rondos all the time, it's just rare to see them so effortlessly making a mockery of their teammates.
