Manchester United Sign Romero

romeroEnglish Premier League club, Manchester United, have confirmed the signing of Argentina goalkeeper, Sergio Romero, following the uncertainty of David de Gea’s future.

Romero was a free agent after leaving Sampdoria and will replace back-up keeper, Victor Valdes, who has been told he can leave the club.

The 28-year-old, who sealed a three-year deal, is United’s fifth signing of the summer, having signed full-back, Matteo Darmian, midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and forward, Memphis Depay.

Romero has 62 caps with the Argentine national team and played in the 2014 World Cup final, he also won the 2008-2009 Eredivisie title under Van Gaal at Az Alkmaar.

Addressing reporters about the new goalkeeper, Manchester Utd team boss, Louis van Gaal, said Romero did very well in the World Cup.

He said: “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”.

FIFA Shortlists 3 Goalkeepers For Golden Glove

glovesTwo finalists, Neuer and Romero, head FIFA’s Technical Study Group’s shortlist for the best goalkeeper at Brazil 2014.

Below are the World Cup’s safest hands according to information on the FIFA website.

Keylor Navas (CRC) 

The Levante stopper was arguably Costa Rica’s best player at Brazil 2014, including a match-winning display in the Round of 16 tie against Greece. Making 21 saves in Los Ticos’ five games, he was awarded the Budweiser Man of the Match Award on three occasions. At 26-years-old the best years of his career are firmly ahead of him.

Manuel Neuer (GER)

The Germany keeper has played in all of the Nationalelf’s six games so far, making 25 saves and completing 202 passes. He’s kept three clean sheets and been a commanding presence for Joachim Low’s side so far. After winning a host of domestic honours, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup, the FIFA World Cup and the Golden Glove is now in his sights.

Sergio Romero (ARG)

Penalty shoot-out saves from Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneidjer sent La Albiceleste into the final, capping a fine tournament for the 27-year-old so far. The Monaco keeper has kept four clean sheets, making 15 saves in Brazil 2014 so far. Brought into international football by Diego Maradona, he has been Argentina’s first choice keeper for five years.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil have witnessed some remarkable displays of goalkeeping from Guillermo Ochoa’s spectacular stop from Neymar, to Tim Howard’s record-breaking 16 saves against Belgium.

There’s also been a string of fine displays from Costa Rica’s Keylor Navas, penalty heroics from Sergio Romero and an almost Libero-esque display from Manuel Neuer in Germany’s clash with Algeria.
