Sergio Romero could be on his way out of Manchester United as the Argentine becomes frustrated at Old Trafford.
Romero is widely regarded as the best backup goalkeeper in the Premier League and could be about to join Manchester United’s arch rivals Leeds United, who have just been promoted to the top-flight.
According to Argentinian TV station TyC Sports via The Mirror, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly considering a move for his compatriot as he looks to build his squad ahead of next season in the Premier League.
Their current shot stopper Kiko Casilla sounds like a bit of a disgrace too, having disciplinary issues this season having been banned for eight matches for racially abusing Charlton Athletic player Jonathan Leko.
Although we wouldn’t like to see Romero join Leeds, he was overlooked recently in the FA Cup semi-final defeat against Chelsea when many thought he would have started the game ahead of David de Gea. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be standing firmly by De Gea’s side — potentially prompting Romero to search for pastures new.
Moreover, the return of Dean Henderson is likely to push Romero further down the pecking order at Old Trafford. And sources say that the Olympic goal medalist was “really down” after being overlooked in favour of De Gea, reports the Metro.
I wouldn’t begrudge Romero for moving on but pick a better club than Leeds!
Bielsa won’t be there forever but perhaps after a year of playing regular football in the Premier League, Romero could move on again which wouldn’t be out of character given the amount of clubs he has represented already: Racing Club, AZ, Sampdoria, AS Monaco (loan), Manchester United.
However, reports are starting to surface linking Romero with other Premier League clubs including Everton, as per ESPN.
Romero has a year left on his current deal, with an option for an additional year.
