Sergio Romero is ready to call it quits at Manchester United.
For all their faults, Manchester United have been excellent when it comes to choosing goalkeepers. From David de Gea to Dean Henderson, with a little Sergio Romero sprinkled in between.
Over the last few years, the Argentine has arguably been the best back-up in world football. However, he could well be on the way out.
Apparently, the next few weeks are said to be ‘crucial’, with the MLS also touted as a potential destination for the shot-stopper.
Sadly, things went downhill for Romero at United this summer, when the Reds pulled the plug on Romero moving to Everton. Since then, the 34-year-old has failed to make an appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – which certainly seems unfair…
Romero’s current contract actually expires this summer, with all signs pointing towards the keeper becoming a free agent in the not too distant future.
Frankly, I’m still pretty mad at how United treated Romero. He has been a great servant for this club and never once kicked up a fuss about being a back-up. Why the Reds didn’t just allow him to move to Everton will always sting, as it put a dampener on an otherwise perfect professional relationship.
Whatever happens, I just hope that Romero finds a club that can offer him regular playing time. 34 is still relatively young in goalkeeping terms so there is plenty of gas left in the tank for him. That said, you do get the impression he wants to move closer to home…
