Sergio Romero wants OUT of Manchester United.
That’s the line coming from the Daily Star this morning and it doesn’t come as a surprise.
It is suggested that the Argentine goalkeeper is ready for showdown talks with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward this week where he will request for his contract to be terminated.
Romero is currently seen as United’s third best goalkeeper — behind first choice David de Gea and Dean Henderson — but has not been included in the Champions League squad for group stage matches. Lee Grant got the nod ahead of him.
So, if he’s not going to play why are United still paying his wages? This is a player who needs to be moved on and it should have been sorted during the summer.
I don’t feel sympathy for Romero — he’s on a ton of money and hasn’t held the biggest responsibilities during his time at the club — but this situation won’t get better and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hardly wants the rest of his players distracted when results need to improve.
It’s important that we focus on getting De Gea back to his best and Henderson ready to takeover the ropes. This should have been written down in Solskjaer’s notes before the new season kicked off.
Romero won’t be given a red carpet upon exit. That I can assure you.
