Signing Romero prepares David De Gea for Real Madrid - LVG

Louis van Gaal has indicated that Manchester United have signed Sergio Romero to prepare for the possible departure of David de Gea this summer.
Romero completed his move to Old Trafford on Monday, agreeing to a three-year deal, with the option of a fourth.
De Gea is heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the wake of Iker Casillas' departure from the Santiago Bernabeu, having blossomed into one of the Premier League's top shot-stoppers.
And with Victor Valdes set to leave the club over his apparent refusal to play in Under-21 matches last term, Van Gaal concedes Romero could be thrown in at the deep end if De Gea does leaves United. "I know Romero very well and I think in our situation, if De Gea is going or not going, it is always a threat and we have to take care, make sure that we are prepared," Van Gaal told MUTV.
"That is why I think it is very good that Sergio Romero is now a Manchester United player."
Van Gaal has previously worked with Romero at AZ, where the pair won the Eredivisie in 2009.
"He was also a former player of mine," Van Gaal added. "I was coach of AZ in Netherlands, I picked him up when he was 19 and he was a great talent.
"We became champions with him, with a minor club, and in the Netherlands it was a fantastic result of course."
