Give us Aguero and you can have Alexis!

The Argentine, who made 18 appearances for United last season, primarily in the Europa League, which United won, is now tied to the club until 2021.

Romero made just two Premier League appearances in 2016-17 but it remains to be seen if United will retain the services of current No.1 David De Gea.

The Spaniard has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid, with reports this week again suggesting that the Spanish club could launch a bid for the 26-year-old this summer.

“I am delighted to have signed a new contract,” he told United’s official website.

“Who wouldn’t want to be at the biggest club in the world?  We have great goalkeepers here and we are always learning from each other.

“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 in 2017/18.”

Jose Mourinho has also hailed the 30-year-old, especially lauding his performances in Europe.

“Sergio is a great goalkeeper and professional,” he added. 

“He had a good season and outstanding performances, especially in our Europa League success.  Sergio deserves his contract, and for Manchester United to have Sergio and David is amazing in such an important role.”
