Inter Miami Keen on Sergio Romero
Out of Favour in England but Wanted in America
The Manchester United goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at the club with David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Lee Grant all ahead of him. Romero was not included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Premier League or Champions League squads.
Formed in 2018, the David Beckham is president of the MLS club and is looking to sign the Argentinian goalkeeper in January before the season starts in March, according to The Athletic. Romero is said to be currently training and is fit to play.
Manchester United Contract Situation
The Red Devils have been looking for potential suitors for the 33-year old goalkeeper in the summer but Aston Villa ended up opting for Emi Martinez and Everton signed Robin Olsen on loan until the end of the season. Carlo Ancelotti’s side, at the time, had asked for the keeper but United rejected a loan bid which included a £2 million fee as they wanted to avoid improving a Premier League rival.
His contract expires in the summer and, after being priced out of a move away a few months ago, an exit looks more than likely. An unnamed Spanish side are already in talks about taking Romero on loan for the remainder of his contract, but the emergence of interest from Inter Miami could give the 33-year old fresh hope of ending a hellish 2020 at Old Trafford.
To join Beckham’s new army, the 33-year old, who has a current wage of around £100,000 per week, would stipend any chances of a move given the salary restrictions in America.
‘In Demand’ Romero
Regarded as one of the best back-up goalkeepers in the league, the World Cup is on the horizon and the 33-year old will believe that will be his last chance of world glory so to push through an exit now only seems logical.
For United, clubs were offering £15 million-plus for the goalkeeper just a mere three months ago but now look set to lose him for free.
