Sergio Romero has denied that he turned down the chance to join Manchester United this summer.

The Sampdoria goalkeeper was touted as a target for the Red Devils during the summer window but a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise before last week’s transfer deadline.

Would someone be able to refuse an offer from one of the world’s top clubs?

But the 27-year-old Argentine insists that he would not have been able to reject a move to the Premier League side if the opportunity had presented itself.

“I had two or three possibilities but none of them were positively concluded,” Romero told Il Secolo XIX.

“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?

“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.”
