LOS ANGELES: Argentine first choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero said he is delighted to sign a new four-year deal at Manchester United which will keep him tied down to the club until 2021.

"I am very happy because when I started with the club I quickly realised it is fantastic and is the biggest club in the world. I am really happy to prolong my career here," the goalkeeper told MUTV.

Romero, who will be playing for the first time this season against Real Salt Lake in a pre-season encounter, was part of United's Europa League winning campaign making 12 starts in that competition alone, including the final.

Romero made a total of 18 appearances last season. "I think the last year was a fantastic time for us," he said.
