EX-MANCHESTER UNITED goalkeeper Sergio Romero has finally found a new club after joining Venezia.
The 34-year-old left the Red Devils in the summer when his contract expired and has held talks with a number of teams.
Now he has penned a deal with the Italian minnows until June and will be looking to help the 17th-placed Serie A side beat the drop.
The Argentine stopper also has the option of staying an extra year if everything goes to plan.
Venezia released a statement confirming the news earlier, staying: “Venezia FC is pleased to announce the signing of Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero, 34, on a free transfer.
“Romero is Argentina’s all-time most-capped goalkeeper and last played for Manchester United. Welcome, Sergio.”
Romero twice came close to joining Everton only for the transfer to collapse both times.
He has also discussed terms with LaLiga sides Valencia and Granada.
And potential switches to Roma and Spezia were ended when financial constraints led to them looking elsewhere.
Romero impressed as deputy to David de Gea after his arrival at Old Trafford in 2015.
But Dean Henderson’s emergence on the scene at United led to him growing frustrated over a lack of game time and led to his departure.
Romero's wife even vented her fury on social media when he was denied a loan move to Everton last year.
The Toffees were prepared to cover his £100,000-a-week wages and fork out a £2m fee to secure his services.
However, United then demanded a permanent £8m fee despite him entering the final 12 months of his contract.
