Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero is set to undergo a medical at Manchester United after manager Louis van Gaal revealed that Victor Valdes will be leaving the club this summer, according to the Telegraph.

Romero has been released by Serie A club Sampdoria and the report states that the Dutchman considers him as a perfect number two to whoever is given the number one spot for the upcoming campaign. David de Gea's future at the club is still not clear, with the BBC reporting that United want Sergio Ramos in any deal involving a move for their best player last season.

Madrid are unwilling to sell Ramos and have given him the captaincy to stave off any interest, with only two years left in the defender's contract.

Roma are also interested in signing Romero but United have made the decisive move and are likely to complete the transfer as soon as possible. Van Gaal accused Valdes of not following his philosophy and refusing to work with the United reserve team, which has been cited as the main reason behind his imminent departure.

The former Barcelona man has been heavily linked with a move to Turkish club Antalyaspor by the Mirror but any formalities are yet to be processed.

The Red Devils have made Jasper Cillessen their top choice to replace De Gea, with the keeper stating that he would be inclined to make a move if the opportunity presents itself. However, he insisted that United are yet to contact him for a probable transfer and that any decision over his future rests on United's discretion.

"I have only heard the rumours so I don't worry about it until I hear something from my agent. If I don't hear something from my agent, I enjoy playing at Ajax. I ask my agent, who also is Memphis Depay's, and he says we don't know anything," Cillessen told Sky Sports.

"Of course, it's a great club, Manchester United, but I cannot do anything with rumours. It would be a great step," he added.
