Sergio Romero was one of eight Manchester United players to be released this summer after a difficult final year at the club. Romero has been a fine understudy to David de Gea over the years and boasts a brilliant record for the club, featuring over 50 times despite his status as second choice.
The goalkeepers relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly deteriorated last year when he was overlooked for a cup game and Dean Henderson’s return certainly didn’t make it easier for Romero.
Manchester United blocked a move to Everton last summer and instead triggered a one-year extension in his contract, tying the goalkeeper down to an excruciating wait for a move.
But the Argentinian has finally spoken out after his exit was confirmed, insisting that he has ‘many offers’ from clubs in Europe but will wait to make a decision.
“I was let go by United and we are working to see where I could play next,” Romero said in an Instagram live chat, as per Football Italia. “Thank God, I have several offers in Europe. The clubs who asked after me are all in Europe, so we’ll see which is the best option.
“It could be England or Italy, we’ll see. And if it’s Spain, that will be a new experience, but I also have to consider my daughters, who are growing up.”
Romero has been linked with a move to AS Roma, where he has experience with Sampdoria. A potential move to the Italian capital would also see him reunite with José Mourinho, with whom he is believed to have a good relationship.
