Manchester United goalkeeper in transfer talks over return to former club

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is reportedly in talks to finally secure a move away from Old Trafford.

Romero, 34, has not featured at all this season after he was bizarrely not sanctioned an exit following the return of Dean Henderson in last summer’s transfer window.

The veteran Argentine deputised for David de Gea last season, featuring regularly in cup competitions, but he has been frozen out in this campaign, even relinquishing his Europa League squad place to Lee Grant.

Romero’s impending exit has been belated but he could be about to return his former club in his native country.

According to Todo Fichajes, Romero could join ex-side Racing Club when his United contract expires this summer.

The report claims the goalkeeper is already in talks with Racing Club, who are currently fourth in the Argentinian Primera Division.

It is added that Racing Club could afford to offer Romero a two-year contract because he will not require a transfer fee in the summer window.

Romero has been a good servant as a back-up goalkeeper for United over a six-year period, the pinnacle of which was his role in the Europa League success under Jose Mourinho in 2017.
