Manchester United have signed goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a three-year contract.
The Argentinian stopper moves to Old Trafford on a free transfer, after his deal at Sampdoria expired.
The 28-year-old previously worked with United boss Louis van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar.
Romero spoke of his delight at the move to Manchester:
“To play for the biggest club in the world is a dream come true for me. Louis van Gaal is a fantastic manager and I cannot wait to get started on this new and exciting challenge in my career.”
van Gaal is also delighted to have Romero at his disposal:
“Sergio is a very talented goalkeeper. He was a young keeper during my time at AZ Alkmaar and I am delighted he is joining Manchester United.
“He had a fantastic World Cup last summer in Brazil, although that is something I have put to the back of my mind!
“He will be a great addition to the team and I am looking forward to working with him once again.”
The move comes amid doubt over United’s options between the sticks next season.
Number 2 Victor Valdes is expected to depart Old Trafford this summer, having fallen out of favour with Van Gaal.
While David de Gea is still being heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.
