Manchester United took their summer signings to a total of five this week with the capture of free agent and Argentine number one goalkeeper Sergio Romero.
Something of an international veteran having won 62 senior caps for his country to date, Romero is vastly experienced but it remains to be seen whether he’ll be a replacement for David De Gea or Victor Valdes this summer.
Louis van Gaal has openly admitted on the Red Devils’ tour of the United States that he doesn’t know whether De Gea will be at the club past September and has therefore swooped for Romero if the worst case scenario plays out and they lose their Spanish international.
Real Madrid are of course the club who have a heavy interest in De Gea but after they signed Kiko Casilla this summer and made Keylor Navas their new number one, Manchester United fans thought they were off the hook.
Only time will tell whether United will retain De Gea past September and in reality, they are hoping Romero is a second choice and replacement for Victor Valdes who breached club discipline for opting not to play in a reserves fixture recently.
But what do you know about Manchester United’s new boy Romero? We take a look at five interesting facts.
