And in fifa, he is 6'5 lmao

I assume his late morning or midday height is about 1.90m-1.91 range, which , imo legitimately gives a ball park figure of his height.

It's fine bumping up his listing ,I think , by about 0.5 inches . 6'3 is plausible I think.

I think David De Gea is closer to 6'2-6'2.25 range than 6'2.5 in my opinion

Maybe his somewhat bad posture is tricky to pick at
Editor Rob
Might be a better chance of 6ft 2.25 than say 2.75

Yeah he’s 6’2.5 I don’t think he’s more than that and with the cleats and shoes a legit 6’3 for sure.

What’s going on there?
Editor Rob
Was struggling to look 6ft 2 there, although on solid ground maybe it would look different.

Next to Maguire he looked 6'2 to a hair over it in the last game.
RJT said on 30/Sep/21
Thought he was 6'2.25" but after looking at this I agree he's 6'2.5"

189-189.5 before bed and 191-191.5 out of bed.

189 cm. out of bed. 188 cm. lunch. 187 cm. before bed.

6.2ft at most. Seen 6.4ft that's just laughable!
BB9 said on 23/Mar/21
What confuses me is that de gea seems taller than lukaku at times

Rob, how tall do you think Kepa Arrizabalaga is? He's a keeper for Chelsea and De Gea's deputy in the national team. On most sites he's listed as 186/187 and 198 lbs, with I'm surprised with considering his somewhat tall yet weak appearance.

Here's an image for reference: Click Here

Lot's of talks about Peter, but how tall would you reckon Kasper Schmeichel to be? He was listed as a solid 6'1 years back, (in fact I think he was even listed under at 184 at some point) but now he's 189 everywhere. So I went from perceiving him as a bit short for a keeper to the average stature of a keeper. But is he really 6'2.5? And if not is he at least more than 6'1 on the dot?
Editor Rob
he'd said 13stones and 6ft 2 a while back
RJT said on 8/Dec/20
Need downgrade to 6'2.25" and this is from Red devils fan.
OriginalAnon said on 29/Aug/20
188.5cm I think.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/20
Click Here If Rob is still not convincing Rio is 1" taller than de Gea?
Editor Rob
It could be an inch between them.

@Jkiller Propably wakes up at exactly at the 191 mark.
Jkiller said on 28/Feb/20
6'2.75 (189.5cm) is a good measurement for this guy. Probably wakes up at 190cm
184guy2 said on 15/Oct/19
189-190 typical guy

Lee Grant is listed at 6'4'' but he certainly doesn't look it here. Any input?!

I think De Get is 6'2''.
K.A 188 ! said on 22/Aug/19
6ft3 on the dot during the day And Probably 189 as an absolute lowest.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Aug/19
Click Here 1.75" shorter than 194cm Zlatan. Like i estimated 189.5cm is accurate. Def taller than legit 189cm Brandon Routh.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Aug/19
Mostly look right on listing when standing next to 6'4 Gerrad Pique. I would rule out 189.5cm is the worst so a strong 6'2.5" guy. 189.9cm listing is still fair.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Aug/19
@Zutkil He is more like 189cm i wouldn't say 6'2 it looks like not enough. I remember see 6'4 Pique had de Gea by 1.5".
Zutkil said on 22/Mar/19
@Junior Fernández 1990 you're right for the shoes, he is probably 188 then with Reina that seems a little bit taller listed at 188 too. 189+ is overlisted, slightly shorter than strong 189 busquets. Minimum Height 187,9 cm & Maximum Height 189,1.
Zutkil said on 22/Jan/19
187 cm. He's little bit shorter than 188 cm Reina and slightly talleri than 186 cm Roger Federer. Search on google those photos.

Strange that De Gea listed at 6'2 3/4 and there is 3/4 inch between 6'3 claim Rio Ferdinand and him. One point is Rio might be 6'3 1/2.
gogigagagagigo said on 2/Jul/18
Taller than 6'1" Costa, shorter than 6'2" Busquets. 6'1.5" for him

Hi Rob pretty new to celeb heights great website btw my height is 6’2.5 189.6 cm at night in the morning it’s like 191.5-6 cm do you think I can claim 6’3 isn’t 6’3 like 190 cm
Editor Rob
I'd claim 'almost 6ft 3', although many men in your position will simply round to 6ft 3.

De Gea I think looks a kind of similar range, I'm sure if asked he'd probably say 6ft 3 himself.
Balrog said on 25/Dec/17
Rob, what would be your guess on Marc André Ter Stegen?
Editor Rob
186cm maybe
Dude 173 cm said on 22/Dec/17
Clear example of 189 cm guy

I used to be a football fan, supported Manchester United do not feature in my good books :P

But I always liked Manchester United Goalkeepers,
Peter Schmeichel
Edwin van der Sar
David de Gea

All classy performers, especially Schmeichel

@ Nik - Forever the joker, my autocorrect has been at it again!
In the last comment, he tried to change my sentence to '1% of the footballers' EARRINGS be donated to CHARLES!'

Well, I don't have the vaguest idea if Charles wears earrings and if he does, he might prefer to keep them simple, like studs or golden hoops, or better still, wear them in private! Any Charles I've ever known would go along with the football players' earnings in his back pocket instead!

@ Nik (Eek! I nearly missed this!)
Hi! I see you have joined in the fun on this page! Admittedly, I don't often write on the pages of football stars but I thought I'd make an exception with this goalkeeper!
He comes highly recommended by you as well, being the World's top goalie! A good goalkeeper is so imperative to a team's success! I used to swear by David Seaman when he was England's goalkeeper. He played for Arsenal, didn't he, but I hadn't met Jim yet, so I never went out of my way to watch their games then.
I think for a footballer to suggest that 1% of their earnings* be put aside for charity* is a very sweet thought, but if I was a player, I would want to intervene and have some say in which charities I wish to benefit instead of there being a great big footballer's charities fund, though that would do an incredible amount of good, without doubt!
I have seen your request on the request page! I went there to put Christopher Biggins' name forward! Hopefully, we will both be jumping in the air one morning to see them up! In my case, I have to make do with arm jubilation, because it would hurt me to jump!
So now before I lose this comment, I shall press send and sigh in relief! I lost a lovely one earlier and the second one wasn't a patch on the original!
Cheers Nik!

@ Sandy Cowell! - Hi!

I thought I would join in the fun on this page! Well, being a Leeds United fan n' all you could say that Man Utd are not my cup of tea like Tottenham are not Jim's cup of tea and Rangers aren't Rob's cup of tea. However I decided to come on here after seeing my friend make a comment on this page!
Despite being a long suffering Leeds fan I have nothing personal against Manchester United in any way other than the harmless banter I have towards the club, in other words it haas its limits and really is just friendly banter, which sadly is not always the case with football fans. I am going to put in a page request for a Manchester United player, Juani Mata, who is a smashing guy and footballer, like David De Gea is too. The reason why I want to put in a page request for Mata though is because he has come up with the innovative idea of footballers giving up 1% of their wages to charity! Plus I want to know his height, which is around 5'7"! Also I am going to put in a request for a mystery Manchester City player, I am not saying just yet to keep up the excitement. In terms of David's height I am going to plump for 6'2.75", and I must also say that he is perhaps the finest goalkeeper in the world!
Finally,I know Greg's height and I have asked him this too, but it is not for me to say and I will leave that to Greg when he gets back to you'

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!

I think 6ft2.5 would be a better listing,
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Nov/17
@ Anonymous and Greg:
I agree with Anonymous that knowing Greg's height would be very interesting, so Greg, could you please spill the beans?
It would also be nice to know your height, Anonymous!

I'll give this huge goalkeeper 6ft2.75. Greg would like his height; I'd be perfectly content with his footballer's salary! 😊💰💳
Edimar1.84 said on 15/Nov/17
190cm on a good day, my guess is about 189cm.

Yep, 1.90 sounds accurate.

Very solid height, wish I was this height.

And what height are you ?
Jakob said on 14/Nov/17
I'm surprised you gave him this listing, Rob. I would have thought he can look barely 6 ft 2 at times.
MIncer said on 14/Nov/17

What rumours would they be?
spainmen192cm said on 14/Nov/17
Rob, how much do you think he weighs, he looks quite slim.

It prove Rio Ferdinand to be 6'3.5" if De Gea is 6'2.75"

I think he can look 6'3-3.5, Click Here: with Pogba they are within a half inch of each other and Pogba looks at least 6'3.5 if you see him with Buffon.
Editor Rob
I think generally he seems more like under 6ft 3 than over it.
CNROM89 said on 13/Nov/17
A bit shorter than that. 6'2,5 i think.
MaryAnne said on 13/Nov/17
He has nice physique and He looks very handsome. In spite of these fine features of him, I have heard of some nasty rumours about him. If these are genuine, I loathe him. As for height, it suits him.
