In terms of goalkeepers, Manchester United are fortunate. David de Gea is the best in the business, while Sergio Romero is probably the top back-up in the Premier League.
However, this season, the accomplished Argentine has been used sparingly. Now, in an exclusive from The Sun, it is being reported that the 31-year-old wants to stay at Old Trafford; even despite a lack of playing time.
Romero is apparently ready to snub interest from abroad and carry on earning £65,000-a-week although he has only played four times this term.
The player knows he’ll struggle to find that weekly wage elsewhere, so why would he leave especially as he has two-and-a-half-years left on his current deal…
Although he’s expensive I’m happy that he’s playing. Romero is a brilliant keeper who is more than an adequate back-up should David de Gea get injured or even leave.
Romero has never let us down and I’m glad that he wants to stay. He’s a top goalkeeper who often gets minutes in cup games, it’s just a shame that we’ve exited competitions at an early stage or been drawn against another elite side.
For now, though, Romero sticking around gives the board one less position to worry about – which is only a good thing.
