Preparations for Manchester United’s game against Ajax will be well underway. Jose Mourinho will already have a team in mind no doubt, and one confirmed starter for that game is Sergio Romero; our backup goalkeeper who has played superbly in the Europa League all season long.
Now, it looks as though some solid performances from the 30-year-old are set to be rewarded by Manchester United. According to the Sun on Sunday, as per the Daily Star, Romero is to be handed a new one-year contract extension at Old Trafford – keeping him at the club for the foreseeable future.
Currently on £60,000-a-week, Romero is keen to bump up those wages and understandably so, given such an integral part in our European performances this season. Honestly, I cannot begrudge him a new deal.
With David de Gea’s future still up in the air, it makes sense to extend Romero’s deal. Alright, he probably isn’t a future number one, but having a steady, assured hand like him around is only a good thing.
We’ve been blessed with great goalkeepers recently, and obviously, we’d all love for David de Gea to stay. However, Sergio has proven his worth to this great football club and I’m more than happy with the Argentine starting in the final in just a couple of days time. He deserves it.
