Man United are poised to complete its fifth signing of the summer, with Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero reportedly undergoing a medical with the club.
With the futures of David de Gea and Victor Valdes still in question, Metro [via Daily Star] reports United have moved quickly to sign a replacement with Romero undergoing medical tests on Sunday.
Italian giants AS Roma are also said to be interested in the 28-year-old, though it is understood to Serie A club could not match United’s wage offer.
The Argentina number one has struggled for first team minutes over the past two years at Sampdoria and played second fiddle behind Croatian shot-stopper Danijel Subasic whilst on loan with AS Monaco two seasons ago.
Romero has previously worked with United boss Louis van Gaal at Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and was a shining light for Argentina during last year’s World Cup.
United keeper Victor Valdes is expected to leave the club after club boss Louis van Gaal confirmed the Spaniard would be sold after failing to follow his “philosophy”.
