Jose Mourinho has mastered the art of the transfer window that his dealings this summer has passed for success. Barring the signing of players, the Portuguese tactician is ensuring that some key extend their contract with the Club.
Argentina international Sergio Romero has signed a new four year deal with Man United, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho had just rewarded Joel Pereira with a new contract following his astronomical improvement in-between the sticks for United but the future of first choice goalkeeper David De Gea continues to be a subject of speculation. The Spanish shot-stopper is on the radar of Real Madrid, and he has reportedly informed Mourinho that he wants a move with the Club.
Romero is in the final year of his contract with Man United, having switched Sampdoria on a free transfer to link up with former boss Luis Van Gaal in the summer of 2015. Romero plays second fiddle to De Gea in the Premier League but his heroic in-between the sticks for United accounted for their triumph in the transfer window.
Romero kept 12 clean sheets in 18 matches in all competitions for United last season and has proven to he an A-class deputy.
“”I am delighted to have signed a new contract,” Romero told United’s official website.
“Who wouldn’t want to be at the biggest club in the world? We have great goalkeepers here and we are always learning from each other.
“Of course, it was a very proud moment for me and my family to be part of the Europa League final, and I am looking forward to helping the team build on last season’s success in 2017/18.”
It is left to be seen the goalie that will mount the post for United next season.
