The Spanish shot-stopper earned huge amounts of praise for his strong display for the Red Devils in their 3-1 victory over Arsenal at The Emirates in the Premier League at the weekend.
De Gea is widely considered to be one of the best shot-stoppers in world football after having adapted well to life at Old Trafford in recent seasons following his move from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
His fine form in recent years has not gone unnoticed either, with Real Madrid having tried to sign him in the summer of 2015.
However, De Gea ended up remaining at Old Trafford and the 27-year-old appears to be going from strength to strength under Jose Mourinho at the club.
And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes appears to be utterly convinced that De Gea is indeed the best goalkeeper around on current form.
Speaking to BT Sport on Tuesday night, Scholes said: “David, I think we all agree, is probably the best goalkeeper in the world now without a shadow of a doubt.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Manchester City at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they look to try and close the gap to the leaders down to five points with a win.
