In a really surprising turn of events, Manchester United have signed the Argentine international on a three year deal
Sergio Romero chose not to renew his contract with Italian Serie A side Sampdoria this summer and chose to join the Red Devils as a free agent. The custodian has signed a three year deal with Louis van Gaal’s side with an option of another year should his performances deem him worthy of that.
While talking to the club’s official website, the Argentine number 1 said that he was really happy to have signed for the club.
“I am absolutely delighted to join Manchester United,” Romero told the club’s official website.
“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.”
“Sergio is a very talented goalkeeper,” said Van Gaal. “He was a young keeper during my time at AZ Alkmaar and I am delighted he is joining Manchester United.
