SERGIO ROMERO is set to step up to be Manchester United’s number one next season – should David De Gea move to Real Madrid.
The Argentine international has impressed manager Jose Mourinho this season as a more than able deputy to De Gea – so much so that he is set to earn a new contract in the coming weeks.
Now with De Gea maybe edging towards a move to Real Madrid the boss has confidence that Romero can fill his gloves.
Romero, 30, has next season plus the option for a further year on his current contract.
But that will be turned into a new three-year deal if he becomes the official number one.
De Gea is the subject of a potential £60million move to The Bernabeu although Mourinho will battle to keep him.
Romero said: “I played one year with Gabbiadini in Sampdoria in Italy and a lot of training.
“Maybe I have a decision in my head when he took the ball and I say he is shooting in the right and I go there and it is very good for the group and also for me”
And now with the confidence that Jose gives me, the confidence the players give me and the confidence I have, this is very important and I will try and do my best for for the team.
