Sergio Romero has taken his first training session with Manchester United.

New Manchester United signing Sergio Romero has been pictured in his first training session for the Red Devils.

The 28-year-old Argentine completed his transfer to the club just 24 hours ago, signing a three-year deal.

The goalkeeper joins Anders Lindegaard and Sam Johnstone as back-up for David de Gea, with Victor Valdes likely to be sold after falling out with manager Louis van Gaal.

Romero was a free agent after his contract with Sampdoria expired, and could make his debut against Paris Saint Germain this coming weekend.

He is United's fifth summer signing after Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, and is unlikely to be the last.

Louis van Gaal knows him well having managed him at Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, and seeing his Netherlands side beaten by Romero's Argentina at the 2014 World Cup.

At this stage it appears David de Gea wil be staying put, but Romero's addition gives United extra insurance in case the situation changes.
