Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has crashed his Lamborghini near the club's training ground in Carrington, according to reports.

Images emerged on social media of the £170,000 sports car severely damaged and wedged under a roadside barrier off the A6144 road.

A club official confirmed the Argentina international is unhurt and trained with the rest of the squad on Monday, according to Sky News.

The Mirror also reported that the goalkeeper is uninjured following the accident.

Mr Romero joined Manchester United in 2015 under the then-manager Louis van Gaal and acted as deputy to first-choice David de Gea since.

He played in last week's FA Cup third-round replay win against Wolverhampton in his ninth appearance of the season.

It is believed he bought the car back in 2017 shortly after United won the League Cup at Wembley.

Mr Romera is also said to earn £70,000 a week and is considered one of the best back-up goalkeepers in the English league.
