Manchester United star Sergio Romero left nowhere after Inter Miami transfer falls apart
The Argentine has fallen down the pecking order at United following the return of Dean Henderson. With both him, David de Gea and Lee Grant ahead of him in the pecking order, Romero is at best the fourth choice.
Romero was also left out of United’s Premier League and Champions league squads. This further limits his opportunities and also shows his current standing at the club.
It would have made sense for him to leave the club and start afresh elsewhere. That looked to be the case given the interest from MLS side Inter Miami.
With the move broking down, he is now set to stay on at United until at least January. While he could agree to mutually terminate his contract, he is in no mood to do United any favours.
His stance is understandable given how United have treated him in recent months. Romero has been a dependable keeper who has stepped in and performed when needed. In fact, we feel he is hard done by United.
While Romero has not said anything publically, the same cannot be said of his wife. She tore into the club after the move to Everton broke down in the summer.
Unfortunately, being left in limbo could affect Romero’s chances of making Argentina’s squad for Copa America. At 33, it could be his last chance of playing at a major international tournament.

United players were unhappy with the way the club has treated Romero. For someone who has stepped up and delivered when needed, the club have not repaid the Argentine’s efforts when needed.
As much as we love United, we cannot agree with how the club has approached the whole issue.
