Manchester United have agreed to sign former Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a three-year deal, according to reports from the Metro.
Romero has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks after he ran out his contract with the Italian club.
And with United extremely keen on a goalkeeper due to Victor Valdes’ axe this summer, the Red Devils have secured the signature of the Argentina international and is set to announce the deal in the coming days.
Romero has reportedly penned a three-year deal, thought to be worth around £1.2million annually.
The 28-year-old shot-stopper will be seen as back-up to club number-one David de Gea, whose expected move to Real Madrid fell through after the La Liga giants and United failed to agree on a transfer fee.
However, with the transfer window still open till September 2nd, Real could still make a late push for De Gea as the Red Devils eye Sergio Ramos in return.
