In a 10-minute video with Bleacher Report, Romano explains how he works as a football journalist trying to break news on a daily basis. The transfer window is a busy period for the media and we have come to rely on the more reliable journalists such as Romano for our news.

However, last week Chris Smalling joined Roma on a season-long loan and the video below shows how Romano received information on the €3m deal. It gives some insight into how the media works around football transfers.

He notes how there’s an extra appetite for news concerning Manchester United during the video.

It’s a shame he didn’t have to work on more incomings this summer for the Red Devils!
