Manchester United are inching closer to its fifth signing of the summer, with Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero reportedly agreeing a deal with the Red Devils.
United have been linked with a move for the free agent after it was announced he had parted ways with Serie A side Sampdoria, and Metro reports the Premier League giants are close to announcing a three-year deal for the 28-year-old.
Romero is believed to have completed a medical and Italian transfer insider Gianluca Di Marzio tweeted that a deal is close to being signed and announced.

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.
Romero has previously worked with United boss Louis van Gaal at Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and starred for Argentina during last year’s World Cup as his side reached the final.
