Everton in talks with Manchester United over Sergio Romero loan
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti has been left frustrated by current number one Jordan Pickford’s routine errors. He is keen to bring in competition for the English international.
Apart from Romero, United are also looking at Tottenham Hotspur’s Paulo Gazzaniga.
The Toffees are in talks with both clubs regarding a move. The major sticking point in both cases is the Blues’ offer to loan the player.
Both United and Spurs would rather sell their Argentine custodian on a permanent deal rather than a temporary one.
Though dependable, Romero is the third-choice keeper at United. The prospect of him playing regularly for us is very low and the club will do well to sell him and raise funds instead.
Romero has much more pedigree than Gazzaniga and has made 96 appearances for Argentina at the national level.
The 33-year-old has time and again proven his worth when called upon. In 61 appearances across all competitions, Romero has kept 39 clean sheets during his spell at Manchester United. (h/t Transfermarkt)

The player too is keen to move in search of regular game time. With the Copa America set to be held next summer, sitting on the United bench will hardly help him make it to the Argentina squad.
Romero has been a dependable player for United over the years. It will only be fair that the club also do what is best for him and let him move on.
