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.
