Sergio Romero is very close to joining Manchester United. The Argentine keeper is set to replace Victor Valdes at Old Trafford. Sergio Romero has been Argentina’s number 1 goalkeeper over the past few years.
Romero became a free agent after his contract expired at Sampdoria this summer. And according to ESPN FC, the 28-year-old has now agreed to sign for Manchester United.
It is claimed that Romero will jet out this weekend to join up with his new teammate on their pre-season tour of the United State. Despite being the most capped Argentine goalkeeper of all time, Romero has struggled to be a hit at club level over the years.
Former Argentine coach Sabella sees him as an exceptional goalkeeper. The 28-year-old goalkeeper featured in all 5games for Argentina in the 2010 World Cup. Moreover, Romero also played pivotal role in helping Argentina qualify for World cup 2014 and Copa America 2015 finals in which they lost both finals.
ESPN also reported that Romero has agreed a five year deal with Manchester United. Romero, has a wealth of experience having also played in Holland and France as well, and he has earned over 69 caps for Argentina.
