Sergio Romero to lead Manchester United summer exodus
The Argentine goalkeeper has fallen out of favour with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. With his future at the club all but done, there is little option but to seek his fortunes elsewhere.
The Red Devils appear to be thinking along the same lines and will not offer the veteran an extension. United have already started looking for a replacement.
The 34-year-old has been seeking an exit since last summer. He was left fuming after he was denied the opportunity to join Everton on loan the same window.
He was expected to leave in January but instead opted to stay and see out his deal at Old Trafford. Currently earning £100,000-a-week, he is an expensive liability to the club.
A brilliant back-up keeper, Romero has fallen down the pecking order after Dean Henderson returned to the club last summer. At 34, he has one last move left in him and it remains to be seen where his future lies.
Romero may have very well played his last game for United. He was omitted from our squads this season with 38-year-old Lee Grant preferred ahead of him.
Signed in 2015 by Louis van Gaal, Romero has been an excellent back-up keeper, who has mostly performed when called upon. He has let in only 27 goals in 61 games for United, keeping an incredible 37 clean sheets. (h/t Transfermarkt)
