A brilliant back-up keeper, Romero has fallen down the pecking order after Dean Henderson returned to the club last summer. With his future at the club non-existant, an exit is only a matter of time.
With his contract up in the summer, United will be best-served parting ways with the Argentine star now. However, they appear to be willing to wait and see if there is any interest from the United States.
If there is no such offer forthcoming, it makes little sense for United to retain the wages of a player who is not a part of their plans. At the very least, the wage bill can be reduced to an extent.
Romero has made it no secret that he is keen to quit Old Trafford in search of regular football. His dreams of making the Copa America could be far from guaranteed if he continues to be denied first-team action.
The 33-year-old’s last club appearance came during last season’s Europa League quarter-final clash against FC Copenhagen in August 2020.
The 33-year-old joined the club in 2015 during the reign of Louis van Gaal. He has let in only 27 goals in 61 games for United, keeping an incredible 37 clean sheets. (h/t Transfermarkt)
