Everton and Leeds United are reportedly considering a move for Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.
Dean Henderson’s return after spending two seasons on loan at Sheffield United will surely spell the end for Romero’s five-year spell at Old Trafford and the Argentina veteran won’t be short of suitors if he seals an exit.
Romero is well aware of his position deputising for David De Gea at United.
But according to the Mirror, he has been growing increasingly frustrated at being used sparingly despite the Spanish number one’s consistent errors.
The 33-year-old was most notably dropped for the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, a game in which De Gea made an inexplicable error to concede from Mason Mount’s tame effort.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has staunchly defended De Gea regardless of his form during his spell as manager and it’s understandable that Romero could now seek an exit after learning he is likely to be third-choice.
The Mirror’s report claims Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is targeting Romero to provide competition for under-pressure England international Jordan Pickford.
Pickford, like De Gea, made a series of errors in the 2019/20 season and has had his place as number one at Goodison Park questioned.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is also said to be monitoring Romero’s situation and could yet make a move to take the United shot-stopper to Elland Road.
