Manchester United Tie Defensive Star To New Deal: What Does This Mean For The Squad?

Manchester United are looking forward to making an impact in the forthcoming season in the Premier League as well as the Champions League, where they will be facing some of the best clubs from all over Europe and are poised to sign quite a few new players to meet the challenges. They are also looking forward to making their old players stay, whose presence they feel, is more than essential for their success in the next term.

One such player for the Red Devils is their Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, who has been nothing less than a livewire between the sticks for them in the last few seasons, proving that he is integral to the team.

His crucial saves in the nick of times have helped the team to win a number of matches in the last few terms, but speculations are rife that the player might be on the go this summer, with the present Champions League winners real Madrid, showing profound interest to bag the player.

However, Manchester United have been able to keep hold of their other goalkeeper, Sergio Romero. The Argentine number one is another crucial player for the Red Devils beneath the crossbar but has been playing the second fiddle to the Spanish shot stopper throughout his term so far, since his arrival into the team in 2015.

The 30-year-old has been used on several occasions by the Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, but never on a regular basis. Now that the Argentine has put the pen to paper to finalize a new deal with them that will see him stay back at the Old Trafford for four more years, it might an indication that Manchester United are ready for life without their mainstay in the goal De Gea.

Romero has featured in quite a few important match-ups for the Red Devils, and was also the man between the sticks in the all important final of the Europa League last season, which his team won by 2-0 to seal a place in the Champions League for this season.

The player has enough ability to become the number one for Manchester United, but might not be allowed to do so, with the present manager already looking for potential targets to replace the Spanish superstar in his side’s goal for the next term.

However, the new deal for Sergio Romero is a big boost for the Red Devils amongst the speculations of De Gea leaving for Real Madrid this summer.
