And with his experience in the Serie A, he could be an asset to the ex-Tottenham and Real Madrid handler when his reign at the club kicks off next season.

Romero spent four seasons at Sampdoria before completing to United in 2015 under Dutchman Louis van Gaal.

According to Mirror and SunSport, the Argentine was close to a move to Everton last summer but the Red Devils bosses saw that the deal collapsed after rejecting their £2million loan fee offer and demanded £8 million.

During his stay at Old Trafford, Romero featured in 61 games for United conceding 27 goals and keeping 39 clean sheets.

He has never been favoured under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who prefers David de Gea and Dean Henderson to him.

Real Madrid approached Mourinho to replace Zidane earlier reported that Real Madrid found a quality replacement for Zinedine Zidane as their new head coach in former manager Carlo Ancelotti.

However, Los Blancos tried luring Jose Mourinho back to the Santiago Bernabeu despite knowing that he recently took the Roma coaching job.

The former Chelsea handler has been without a job since Tottenham Hotspur severed ties with him over dwindling fortunes in their pursuit for European club competition.
