Sergio Romero signs new deal to keep him at Manchester United until 2021
ESPN - Monday 17th July, 2017
Sergio Romero has signed a new long-term deal at Manchester United.
The Argentina international goalkeeper was set to be out of contract next summer, but will now stay until at least 2021. He helped United win the Europa League last season, starting both legs of the semifinal against Celta Vigo and the final against Ajax in Stockholm.
He is set to compete with David De Gea and youngster Joel Pereira next season.
De Gea has again been linked with a move to Real Madrid, two years after his proposed move to the Bernabeu collapsed at the last minute.
Romero said: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. 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."
Mourinho added: "Sergio is a great goalkeeper and professional. He had a good season and outstanding performances, especially in our Europa League success. Sergio deserves his contract, and for Manchester United to have Sergio and David is amazing in such an important role."
