Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has signed a new four-year 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.

Reds' boss Jose Mourinho also had his say on the news, as he added: "Sergio is a great goalkeeper and professional".

Romero said that he was delighted to have signed the new contract with the "biggest club in the world".

Romero is now United's second-choice goalkeeper behind David De Gea, but the 30-year-old has produced some impressive performances when called upon in cup competitions. 'He had a good season and outstanding performances, especially in our Europa League success.

The goalkeeper's contract was set to expire next season, but now he has signed a new long-term deal and is set to compete with David de Gea and youngster Joel Pereira for game time next season. "We have great goalkeepers here and we are always learning from each other", Romero told the club's official website. "Sergio deserves his contract, and for Manchester United to have Sergio and David is awesome in such an important role".

Such is the threat of Real tempting former Atletico Madrid star De Gea back to the Spanish capital, many United fans have taken to social media to greet the news of Romero's contract extension as a sign their first choice could be leaving, per Izzy Horsefield of the Sunday Express.

'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'.

Argentina's No. 1 was reduced to a watching brief as United's preseason tour kicked off with a 5-2 win at the Los Angeles Galaxy but has been promised a half in their second match.

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