At the time this article has been published, Argentine number one and free agent Sergio Romero could’ve already joined Manchester United with many publications claiming a deal was set to be concluded this weekend.
At the start of the summer, Red Devils fans may have thought that the likes of Romero would be coming in to replace David De Gea but with the Spanish international set to remain for at least one more season, the Argentine will be replacing Victor Valdes.
Both Valdes and Louis van Gaal have endured a public falling out after the Spanish number two reportedly refused to take place in a reserves fixture and this understandably irked the Red Devils’ boss.
Romero was most recently at Sampdoria but with the Italian club having released him after a loan spell at Monaco, United will be picking up a goalkeeper who is still, just 28-years-old and who knows, could take over from De Gea as the number one if Real Madrid get their way next summer.
Extremely experienced having played in both a World Cup Final and Copa America Final in the last 18 months, United will be in safe hands if De Gea gets injured this term but at the same time, it must be said that De Gea is extremely consistent.
But with Romero coming in and United still needing to fill a fair few positions, just who else could be following him to Old Trafford? We take a look at five men who could be.
