Manchester United have finally acquired the services of a new goalkeeper after they recruited the Argentine shot-stopper Sergio Romero on a three-year-deal.
The 28-year-old, who was released by Serie A outfit Sampdoria last season after making just 10 appearances for the Italian club.

Romero becomes Louis van Gaal’s fifth major signing of the summer, following the arrival of Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin.
It is believed that the South American star is likely to be a replacement for Victor Valdes, who is expected to leave Old Trafford.
Here are the best reactions from the United fans to Romero’s arrival at Premier League:
Standing at 1,91m (6’3) Sergio Romero is known as “Chiquito” (Tiny). Why? because his brother, Diego, stands at 2,05m (6’9).

Just checked on YouTube and I can officially say that Sergio Romero is the best GK in the World.

As happy as I am that we have a quality keeper in Sergio Romero this probably means De Gea’s time at United is finally up. :'( #mufc
