Manchester United Confirm Their Fifth Signing Of The Summer

Man Utd have confirmed the signing of Argentinian international goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old, who has 62 caps for Argentina, played for Louis van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar and signs a three-year deal at Old Trafford.


Van Gaal hailed Romero as a 'great addition' to the team.


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.

Romero played every game of his country's run to last month's Copa America final which they lost on penalties to Chile.

With Victor Valdes deemed out of sync with the club's philosophy, the former Sampdoria player will battle it out with Anders Lindegaard to be David de Gea's back up.
