Manchester United Football Club announced their fifth signing of the summer late last night, as the club confirmed their move for the free agent, Sergio Romero. The 28-year old has penned a three-year contract at the club, that’ll keep him here until at least 2018.
Sergio Romero and Louis van Gaal have previously worked together at AZ Alkmaar, and his most recently club was Sampdoria in the Serie A. Many will know him for his excellent World Cup he had with Argentina last summer, when he helped take his side all the way to the final.
Sergio Romero said: “I am absolutely delighted to join Manchester United. 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.”
Louis van Gaal said: “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.”
