Manchester United back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero has reportedly bid farewell to the club’s staff ahead of a possible transfer to Boca Juniors.
Romero, 33, joined United in 2015 after making the switch from Sampdoria on a free transfer, as per Transfermarkt.
Since his arrival at Old Trafford the experienced shot-stopper has featured in 61 matches in all competitions, keeping 39 clean sheets along the way.
The talented Argentinian who was always resigned to a back-up role quickly emerged as a favourite among fans after becoming known for his reliable nature.
For a long period of time, Romero and number-one David De Gea were widely regarded as one of the world’s best keeping duos.
However, after being denied a starting place in last season’s Europa League and FA Cup semi-finals by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Romero’s time at United came under threat.
The 33-year-old’s starting line-up snubs prompted his wife to launch a scathing social media attack on her husband’s employers and after that, the South American’s fate was all but sealed.
Despite failing to secure a move during last year’s summer transfer window, Romero does now appear to be edging closer to the Old Trafford exit.
A recent report from MEN claims that the talented keeper has now said his goodbyes to staff at United’s training complex, Carrington.
MEN claim that Romero is now back in his native Argentina and has not trained with the United squad during 2021.
Romero’s contract is set to expire in the summer and with no signs of being able to salvage his United career, the 33-year-old looks set to become the next big name to depart United.
