The 27 year old Argentine national team custodian had been linked with a potential move to either Liverpool or Man United, though Romero has been at pains to point out that he would have found it impossible to turn down a move to Old Trafford, stating:

“I had two or three possibilities but none of them were positively concluded.

“I didn’t ask for more money to go to Benfica and I also read that I turned down [Manchester] United.

“But in your opinion, would someone be able to refuse an offer from one of the world’s top clubs?

Such a statement appears to be a ‘come and get me’ plea with this source suggesting that Romero was deemed by Louis van Gaal as a useful back-up to first choice keeper David de Gea.

Romero spent last term on loan at AS Monaco but hopes to force his way into Sampdoria’s starting eleven in 2014/15.

He added: “I want to show my value here, so I’ll be able to find my space.

“I’ve spoken with the president, the sporting director and coach Sinisa Mihajilovic, who told me that should I do good things, he will give me an opportunity.”

Romero impressed at this summer’s World Cup finals, starting all seven of Argentina’s matches on route to the final.
