Romero was a free transfer under Louis van Gaal two years ago but has impressed current boss Jose Mourinho.

Upon signing the deal, the 30-year-old shot-stopper stated: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract".

With De Gea, one of the best goalkeepers in the world, ahead of him in the pecking order, it is hard to envisage Romero playing regularly in the league next season, but it will be intriguing to see whether Mourinho entrusts his second-choice goalkeeper with playing in the Champions League. "Who wouldn't want to be at the biggest club in the world?" said Romero. "I am really happy to prolong my career here".

United, who came sixth in the Premier League last season, qualified for the Champions League via the Europa League and will be aiming to win the European Cup for the fourth time.


"I think the previous year was a fantastic time for us".

'We have great goalkeepers here and we are always learning from each other.

"Sergio is a great goalkeeper and professional", Mourinho told United's website.

Romero himself was thrilled to extend his stay with United for the long-term, describing them as the world's biggest club. "Sergio deserves his contract, and for Manchester United to have Sergio and David is wonderful in such an important role", Mourinho added. Romero will have his hands full in trying to dislodge De Gea as the regular number one, but the latter's future is not clear as reports have resurfaced about Real Madrid's long-standing interest in taking the Spaniard back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"We play the kid [Joel Pereira] for 45 and Romero for 45".
