Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero eyeing MLS transfer
The 33-year-old Argentine international has dropped down the pecking order at Manchester United following the return of Dean Henderson from his loan spell.
With playing time not forthcoming at Old Trafford, Romero had his heart set on an exit before the transfer window closed.
Romero was on the verge of sealing a deadline day loan move to Everton. However, a move fell through after the Red Devils demanded a loan fee for the signing, leading to the Toffees signing Robin Olsen from AS Roma instead. (h/t Daily Mail)
Following the failed transfer, Romero’s wife Eliana Guercio hit out at the club for not letting the deal go through. (h/t Daily Mail)
“Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him. He helped the team reach 4 finals/semi-finals and then he was left on the bench only to lose them all. It is time for them to return the opportunity and let him go. Respect for once!”
And as per the report, Romero is now eyeing a fresh start in the Major League Soccer in the USA. The transfer window is open until October 29 for MLS clubs, meaning a deal is very much possible.

Romero has been a top-class performer for Manchester United since his transfer in 2015. And it is only fair for the club to let him leave given that he is well down the pecking order currently.
A transfer to MLS may be the best possible option for the Argentine at this moment.
