Why Manchester United’s New Signing Is A Good Sign For The David De Gea Situation

Manchester United look set to complete another signing, this time it’s Argentina’s goalkeeper, Sergio Romero. 

What does it all mean? Manchester United fans will have previously been happy that the David De Gea saga has rumbled on albeit very quietly over the last few weeks with no indication it’s progressing. Which most Manchester United fans will agree is great news.

But with the news that the Sergio Romero deal is all but wrapped up, should they be getting worried? No, they shouldn’t. Romero should probably be happy with life on the bench at Old Trafford and this is why. It doesn’t look like a David De Gea replacement Sergio Romero is a good shot stopper, but nowhere near the same level as David De Gea. Yes he’s Argentina’s first choice and has played in a World Cup final, but week in week out he likely lacks the ball handling skills to instil complete confidence in a defence. Manchester United have shown they mean business witha  number of deals, to now finally move for a keeper like Romero is a good sign. They have cash, lots of it. Had they been planning for a David De Gea exit, they’d have splashed it on a more expensive asset like Lloris. The Valdes saga The bust-up with Valdes really came out of nowhere. But something has been done or said by either LvG or Valdes to ruin the relationship and his impending departure. Both Valdes and Romero seem very similar, very good players but not ones you’d want to build a defence around. Sergio Ramos The Ramos connection seems to have really screwed things up for Real Madrid. With his future unclear, Manchester United have been able to cause havoc with negotiations. It looked like that had ben cleared up, Marca seem to disagree however.

Jonas Giæver, the journalist tweeting this news also followed it up with several tweets that indicate Ramos has his mind made up on leaving.

This news isn’t anything particualrly new. But as long as that drama continues, Madrid have themselves occupied. It’s a long summer and it’s nowhere near over, but it looks like Manchester United have won the war to keep David De Gea.
