Manchester United recently announced that Argentinian goalkeeper Sergio Romero would be released this summer which in all truth seemed like an inevitability having excluded the 34-year-old from all of their league and cup squads’ last season. The former AS Monaco man was a reliable backup goalkeeper, starting in goal for United throughout their last trophy win which was the 2017 Europa League.
Due to the quality demonstrated by Romero in his time at Old Trafford as well as the experience the former Argentina international has, having earned 96 caps for his country, there is a queue of suitors. Everton look likely to go for Romero having wanted to sign the shot-stopper last season prior to loaning in Robin Olsen, however, United’s reluctance to let him leave caused a huge row which effectively saw the experienced international exiled from the Red Devils first-team.
There is also rumoured to be interest from La Liga outfit Celta Vigo, as well as Italian giants Juventus. But, according to the Athletic’s United correspondent Laurie Whitwell, Romero is said to prefer to stay in England, meaning a move to Goodison Park could be on the cards.
