Manchester United could reportedly being considering offering back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero to Aston Villa in exchange for attacking midfielder Jack Grealish.
Romero, 33, has been the subject to intense speculation surrounding his United future after being left out of the side’s FA Cup and Europa League semi-final matches.
The back-up keeper has been with the Reds since 2015 and during those five years has become somewhat of a fan favourite after not only going about his back-up duties faultlessly but also being very solid when called upon.
However, despite the appreciation the United faithful have for Romero, the South-American’s future has been cast into doubt amid fiery claims from the Argentinian press that their international goalkeeper won’t stay with United forever.
However, a recent report today by the Daily Mail suggests that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could consider including the Argentinian in a summer offer for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
Grealish, 24, has reportedly been a long-standing transfer target for the Reds which saw his future cast into more doubt when in an exclusive interview with Stretty News earlier this summer, his agent Jonathan Barnett claimed the attacker’s career would benefit from Champions League football.
The report comes in light of the news that United are continuing contract extension talks with young goalkeeper Dean Henderson in an attempt to retain his services, as per Manchester Evening News.
