Former Sampdoria and Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero will reportedly join Venezia on a free transfer.
The 34-year-old’s contract with the Red Devils expired this past June, so he is available as a free agent.
According to multiple reports in Italy, the Argentinean shot-stopper has reached an agreement with newly-promoted Serie A side Venezia, so he will move to the Stadio Penzo on a free transfer.
Sky Sport Italia reports Romero will sign a one-year contract with an option to extend for a further year.
Romero had also been linked with a move to Spezia, but the Aquilotti eventually signed former Roma keeper Antonio Mirante, also on a free transfer.
Romero played 61 games with the Red Devils, but he never featured in their starting line-up in 2020-21.
He has 42 appearances in Serie A, all of them with Sampdoria. He kept 25 clean sheets in 74 appearances with the Blucerchiati over three seasons at Marassi.
Former Man Utd goalkeeper Sergio Romero is set to join Serie A side Venezia as free agent. Negotiations at final stages – also Spezia wanted him but Venezia are leading the race to complete the deal soon. 🇦🇷 @SkySport #transfers
