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.
The Argentine has been a highly reliable deputy at the Old Trafford outfit, and he has now been rewarded with a contract extension, which will keep him at the club until July 2021, with the option to extend for a further year.
Upon signing the deal, the 30-year-old shot-stopper stated: “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.”
Reds’ boss Jose Mourinho also had his say on the news, as he 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.”
