Transfer News: Sergio Romero is interested in Manchester United return this summer
According to Manchester Evening News, Sergio Romero is interested in the idea of a return to Manchester United on a potential move in the summer transfer window. He had left the club ahead of the previous campaign but could be in line to rejoin them soon enough.
Man United are currently looking into the market to bring in a backup goalkeeper with Dean Henderson closing in on a loan move to Nottingham Forest. They could turn their gaze towards Romero, who is intrigued about the prospect of returning to Manchester.
Romero is currently a free agent after plying his trade at Venezia throughout the 2021-22 campaign. The Red Devils have not expressed their intent to facilitate a reunion just yet, although the shot-stopper is said to hold the club dearly even now and would be willing to play as a second fiddle.
Romero, a good choice?
It is good to see that the Argentinian still has not lost any love for us despite seeing his relationship with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer take a really bad turn. Supposedly, Romero would be willing to “always come back” if the Manchester outfit makes an offer for him.
That could prove to be a great outcome for us, considering how good Romero was when he was available for selection. While the Italian side saw themselves get relegated, the goalkeeper ran into an injury at an unfortunate time that played a major part in them dropping down to Serie B.
Venezia’s poor run of form in the second half of the last season played a major part in their relegation, but Romero was out injured at that time. The 35-year-old made 16 appearances for them while helping them to three clean sheets and restricting the goal conceded to just 33.

Venezia are not exactly a powerhouse as they returned to the Italian top flight after 20 years of absence which shows their level of quality. Despite that, Romero was able to keep them in contention in the early part of the previous campaign.
Hence, one could say that the South American could prove to be a solid short-term addition for us. After all, Romero would not dent our transfer budget and would probably accept reasonable terms due to his sheer love for the club. Now it is up to Erik ten Hag to decide on this matter, so let’s wait and see how this situation pans out in the coming weeks.
