Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is reportedly expected to be the first name out of Old Trafford’s starting gate in the January transfer window.
The Argentinian has fallen out of favor in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team after a major dispute in the summer and now it seems highly likely that he will leave this winter as long as the £ 2 million starting price is reached, according to Football Insider.
Romero was for many years a reliable reserve goalkeeper for United, and he may have felt bad after missing a few big cup games last season – the kind of games he would normally be selected for.
Since he never disappointed Man Utd when they called him up for these kinds of matches, it must have hurt when he was fired by Solskjaer, and then he was also removed from their squad entirely with the return of Dean Henderson from an impressive loan stint at Sheffield United.
Football Insider claims Romero was furious that he was not allowed to leave the Red Devils for the summer, and it is clear that club-player relations are now at a really bad point.
It surely makes sense for MUFC to now accept Romero’s departure for a reduced fee as soon as possible this January.
