Romero, 30, made 18 appearances last term, including in the Europa League final victory over Ajax in May, making it his most prolific season since making 33 appearances for Sampdoria in 2012-13.

David de Gea has shared his thoughts on being named the best goalkeeper in the world at Manchester United.

The Spaniard has been incredible at Old Trafford and has been continuously linked with a move to Real Madrid after his move collapsed in the closing hours of transfer deadline day in 2015.

The Argentina worldwide is still behind established No. 1 David De Gea in the United pecking order, but has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until at least 2021.

"And the truth is that there exists a great friendship between us, we work hard in order help each other out". If he puts pressure on me, I put pressure on him and it's the same with Joel [Pereira] who is working with us.

"So yes, it's good for me if he stays at United".

Romero signed a four-year contract extension in July, and played 18 times last season, 12 of those coming in the Europa League.

Sergio Romero has admitted he is unsure how much time he will spend on the pitch for Manchester United this season. "We will get to know before each match who is going to start as normal, but we will work hard and the minutes that I get, I will try to take advantage of them".
