Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is reportedly in conflict with the club after a summer move was blocked which has resulted in the South American subsequently falling down the squad’s pecking order.
Romero, 33, joined United from Sampdoria in 2015 on a free transfer.
The Argentinian shot-stopper has always occupied the back-up keeper role, however, after being snubbed in last season’s FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals, Romero has become disgruntled with the club he has spent the last five years with.
Romero looked all but set to depart Old Trafford during the summer transfer window’s deadline day with domestic rivals Everton interested in bringing him to Goodison Park, as per leading journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

However, Romero’s deadline day move failed to materialise which prompted his wife to launch a scathing social media attack on her husband’s employers.
It is understood that Romero is not happy with being the Reds’ fourth choice goalkeeper and was left disappointed after the transfer fee the club demanded priced him out of a move.
It has also been claimed that despite being in talks with David Beckham’s Inter Milan during the MLS’ extended transfer window, no agreement was made.
