Liverpool summer target Sergio Romero has revealed that he did not reject a chance to join Manchester United on deadline day of the transfer window.

The Sampdoria keeper was linked with a move to Anfield as Brendan Rodgers was looking to improve competition at Anfield.

Liverpool have Simon Mignolet as the recognised stoppers in the squad and the Reds were keen on signing the Argentine international after allowing Pepe Reina join Bayern Munich.

Reports suggested United came up with a late bid to sign Romero and that he turned down the offer.

However, the 27-year-old denied that he rejected a chance to join Louis van Gaal's side, while confirming that several clubs were interested in securing his services.

"I've had two or three possibilities but none of them were positively concluded. I've not asked more money to go to Benfica and I've read I would have refused United," Sky Sports quoted Romero as saying.

The Argentine stopper now wants to put the transfer saga behind him and focus on proving his worth at Sampdoria.

"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," the Argentine international concluded.

Meanwhile, United defender Jonny Evans believes the dynamics in the dressing room will change after Louis van Gaal made several changes to the squad on the final day of the transfer window.

The Red Devils have added Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, while allowing Nani, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley to leave Old Trafford in the last 10 days of the transfer window

"All the lads were talking about it when we got back into training, particularly the fact that we'd signed [Radamel] Falcao and Daley Blind, while Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley had gone," Evans told United's official website.

"It will change the dressing room dynamics but while we've got two good players going out, we've got two good players coming in. That's how football works, things move on. We must make sure we concentrate on welcoming the new lads and start winning games."
