Should Sergio Romero decide to bring his time at Old Trafford to an end, Manchester United may need to bring in another backup goalkeeper.
The Sun reports that the Argentine, who just signed a new contract at the club last summer which ties him until 2021, is unhappy that David de Gea was chosen to start ahead of him for the FA Cup final since he missed just one game in the cup – semi-final vs Tottenham — up until that point.
Romero, 31, will miss out on the World Cup due to a knee injury, although his wife has had quite a bit to say about that too.
It’s said that former Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is ‘in the frame’ to replace Romero as our backup goalkeeper. The bang average shot-stopper has spent the past two seasons on loan at Torino and West Ham.
Celtic keeper Craig Gordon and West Brom’s Ben Foster are also being reportedly considered for the second-choice role.
Here is how the fans took the news on Twitter:
It seems Joe Hart’s career has plumitted in the last couple of years,but becoming the 2nd.string goalkeeper at Man.Utd.means it has really hit rock bottom?

While Man Utd are preparing to secure the services of Joe Hart as a back keeper, Southport are trying to do the same with Loris Karius

Joe Hart? Arf! That would be akin to the day we signed Peter Bodak from Coventry. On a free transfer. Heady days indeed
