Johannesburg, July 27 (ANI): Manchester United on Sunday confirmed the signing of Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero as a result of the uncertainty over David De Gea.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper will replace Victor Valdes, who was shown the door at Old Trafford after apparently refusing to play for United’s second team, Sport24 reported.
Romero said it was a dream come true for him to play for the biggest club, adding that he could not wait to get started on this new and exciting challenge of his career.
The Argentine, who has signed a three-year deal with Manchester United, played in the 2014 World Cup final and won the 2008-09 Eredivisie title under Van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar.
Romero, who had shown the exit door to Van Gaal’s Netherlands in the World Cup by saving two penalties in a semi-final shootout, became the fifth player to be signed by United this summer. (ANI)
