It was confirmed on Tuesday that Serie A side Venezia have secured Sergio Romero's signature for the 2021/22 campaign after the Argentine goalkeeper spent the past six years with the Red Devils.
Romero departed the English giants as a free agent at the end of the previous campaign, in which he did not feature once under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 96-time Argentina international made just 61 appearances for United across all competitions, keeping an impressive 39 clean sheets in the process.
Last month, following his exit from Cape Town City, Zambia international Justin Shonga signed for Egyptian club Ismaily, while South Africa U23 star Thabo Cele has taken his career to Poland.
The midfielder became a free agent after leaving CD Cova Piedade, where he spent three years, in July. Altogether, the 24-year-old played in Portugal for five years, spending time on the books of Real SC, Benfica and Cova Piedade.
