EPL: Why Man United are still keeping Sergio Romero


Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero remains at Man United against his wish after several attempts made by the shot-stopper to leave the club with several offers available.

It would be recalled that on the summer transfer deadline day, Sergio Romero was denied his dream move to join Everton and his wife had to react by slamming the Red Devils.

It is obvious that Sergio Romero cannot find playing tie under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he is tired of being a backup goalkeeper. He is now third on the preference list at the club.

The return of Dean Henderson from loan relegates Sergio Romero from being second to third with Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea still favoured as the first-choice.

It has now been revealed by The Athletic that the reason why the Red Devils still keep Sergio Romero is that they have not found a club that is willing o pay £8 million for his service and they are not ready to let him leave for anything less.

However, there are chances that he will still leave the club before the end of the month as Russian clubs, MLS clubs, and Portuguese clubs can still sign players but they must be willing o meet United’s terms before anything can happen.
