MANCHESTER United goalkeeper David de Gea has given €200,000 to help victims of the Costa Blanca storms.
Seven people were left dead and the region devastated by floods with thousands of people’s homes badly affected.
Now de Gea – whose father grew up in Orihuela in Alicante at the heart of the affected area – has chipped in to help, according to the Spanish Red Cross.
In a social media message it said: “€200,000 to support the people affected by the flooding in Alicante and Murcia.
“David de Gea, thanks for your solidarity.”
De Gea, aged 28, recently signed a new contract with Manchester United said to be worth £255,000 (€290,000) a week.
The Madrid-born player was last year included on a list of the most generous footballers by Spanish newspaper AS.
