Manchester United’s Argentinian goalkeeper Sergio Romero is considering a January exit from the club according to latest reports.
The 30-year shot stopper, who is widely regarded as the best backup goalkeeper in the Premier League is said to be seriously considering an exit from Old Trafford as he fears his place in the Argentine squad to the summer World cup in Russia could be at stake otherwise.
Romero has the unenviable task of coming up against Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea, who has been in incredible form between the sticks at Man United, for a starting shirt, and has made only 21 appearances for the club since Jose Mourinho took over as manager.
Romero has been Argentina’s Number 1 goalkeeper for about 7 years now and feels his place in the squad could hang in the balance if he doesn’t get regular appearances ahead of the coming world cup.
The former Sampdoria and Monaco goalkeeper is a very popular figure a Man United but with the emergence of 21-year old Portuguese goalkeeper Joel Pereira, who is highly rated by Mourinho, Man United and the manager may be open to letting him leave the club in January.
With his enormous worth of experience, it is hard to imagine Romero lacking potential suitors for his services, particularly given his performances for united which have seen keep a total of 14 clean sheets for the club since last season.
