Despite having joined the Red Devils as a free agent in the summer of 2015, Sergio Romero had his best campaign with Manchester United in the previous season, as he helped the club win the decorated UEFA Europa League title with his impressive performances.

There were doubts over his talent when he first initially arrived at the club, but he's done incredibly well to work on his talents and has become an excellent No.2, proving himself over the course of last season.

Opening up on the deal, Romero said: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. Who wouldn't want to be at the biggest club in the world?" said Romero, whose deal gives him the option of another season after 2021.

United manager Jose 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 incredible in such an important role".

Sergio Romero kept eight clean sheets in the Europa League last season, more than any other goalkeeper.

The Argentina worldwide started 12 matches in United's victorious Europa League campaign last season, including the final against Ajax, and made a total of 18 appearances across all competitions.

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.

"In the second match, David does not play", Mourinho told the media this week. "We will play David for 45 and Romero for 45".
