Sergio Romero could be hanging up his Manchester United jersey
Sergio Romero has been one of the best servants for Manchester United over the years but the player’s relationship with the club went downhill after the arrival of Dean Henderson from loan this summer. Louis Van Gaal signed the Argentine for free in the 2015/16 season and the goalie has won many silverwares since then including FA Cup and UEFA Europa League. The former Argentina number one was one of the best back up goalkeepers till last season. In 2016/17, Romero kept a clean sheet against Ajax in the UEFA Europa League final.
Sergio Romero was a regular starter for the Red Devils in the cup games under both Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho but it changed last season when manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played David De Gea in the FA Cup semi-final and in Europa League semi-final. The manager later stated it was to boost the Spaniard’s confidence who was underperforming last season.
Manchester United recalled Dean Henderson after his loan spell was over with Sheffield United. The arrival of the English goalkeeper has boosted the competition for the number one spot but at the expense of Sergio Romero’s playing time. The Argentine wanted to leave this summer but his move to Everton was blocked by the Manchester United board. According to the reports by Daily Mail, the club is willing to sell their goalkeeper for a fee of 2.5 million euros. Romero who is yet to play a single game this season is clearly frustrated and has been pushing for a move this winter transfer window.
The Argentine world cup finalist has had offers from some Major League Soccer clubs and some Premier League clubs. Manchester United will not be affected by the departure of the player as they have two of the best goalkeepers in the league.
