Chelsea consider move for former Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero

According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are considering a move for former Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero. The Argentine is currently a free agent after being released by United in June. Chelsea are looking for a third-choice keeper to replace the departed Willy Caballero.

Romero made 61 appearances for the club during his time and was influential in United’s 2017 UEFA Europa League win. But last year, he failed to make even a single start as Dean Henderson and David de Gea competed with each other. He wanted to exit the club last summer but United failed to complete a deal in time.

The club announced that Romero would be released as a free agent at the end of last month. It brought to an end a 6-year stay at United for the 34-year-old Argentine goalkeeper. During that time, he mostly played back-up to De Gea and only featured in cup games.

Chelsea are on the hunt for a new third-choice keeper. Willy Caballero was released much like Romero. The Blues already have two solid keepers in Edouard Mendy and Kepa. Now, the former United keeper is being considered by Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel for the third-choice role.

With him being a free agent, it is no surprise that clubs are flocking around the 2014 FIFA World Cup silver medallist. One can only hope he gets to play more often wherever he goes. Romero is a solid keeper to have in hand.
