Done Deal: Man United sign Sergio Romero

Manchester United have signed the Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a three-year deal from Sampdoria.

The 28-year-old, who is likely to replace Spaniard shot-stopper Victor Valdes at Old Trafford, says that the move is a “dream come true” for him.

“I am absolutely delighted to join Manchester United,” the South American told the club’s official website.

“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.”

Romero will compete with United’s No. 1 David de Gea, who has been strongly linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
