Manchester United have completed the signing of Sergio Romero on a free transfer, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Romero has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time, and finally sealed the switch by penning a three-year deal.

He said: “I am absolutely delighted to join Manchester United. 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.”

The Argentina international was released by Sampdoria at the end of the previous campaign after running out his contract, and has been brought in to replace Victor Valdes as back-up to first-choice star David de Gea.

De Gea was expected to join Real Madrid before the start of the new season, however United and the La Liga giants failed to agree on a transfer fee.

Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal has also previously worked with Romero before when the Dutchman was in charge of Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar back in 2009, winning the league title that season.

The 28-year-old only played 11 games in all competitions last season, keeping one clean sheet.
