Done Deal: United Officially Announce Argentinean’s Transfer

Sergio Romero

Goalkeeper Sergio Romero is officially a Manchester United player after the club announced the deal on their website.

Romero is best known as the keeper who knocked out Van Gaal’s Dutch side during the penalty shoot out in the World Cup semi finals.  The 28 year old is certainly a memorable figure standing at over 6 foot 3, he spent much of last season as Sampdoria’s back up to Emiliano Viviano.

The Argentinean has already linked up with the squad in San Jose and Louis Van Gaal noted:

“Sergio Romero is an international goalkeeper from the Argentina team,”  

“He was also a former player of mine. I was trainer-coach, manager of AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands, I picked him up when he was 19 and he was a great talent. We became champions with him, with a minor club, and in the Netherlands it was a fantastic result of course.

“I know him very well and I think in our situation, if De Gea is going or not going, it is always a threat and we have to take care, make sure that we are prepared and that is why I think it is very good that Sergio Romero is now a Manchester United player.”

What this means for De Gea’s future is anyone’s guess but either way United have a good solid ‘keeper the manager knows and trusts- let’s just hope he turns out better than the last one who the manager knew well and gave a chance to at Old Trafford…
