Manchester United have targeted Argentina's no.1 'keeper and free agent Sergio Romero to replace their two outgoing stoppers, according to the Manchester Evening News.

With Victor Valdes almost certain to leave the club after a row with LVG pre-season, and David De Gea also looking to be on the way out, United must strengthen their options between the sticks if they are to avoid a repeat of some of the disastrous goalkeeper choices which have infamously plagued them over the years. 

United's reserve 'keeper Sam Johnstone, who spent last season on loan at Preston, is recognised as a formidable young talent, but whether he's ready for regular play in a title challenging side is debatable.

Romero, 28, left Sampdoria at the end of the season after letting his contract run out and will surely be interested by the proposition than joining Man Utd, even as a back-up. The Argentinian also featured in his nation's Copa America run this summer, during which they reached the final.
