Sergio Romero

Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero is considering his Manchester United future after David De Gea was handed a starting berth in the club’s draw against West Ham on Wednesday night.

The 33-year-old has been understudy to De Gea for nearly all of his time at the club and The Metro reports that he was disappointed that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not play him in the FA Cup semifinal, or the following league game after De Gea’s blunders.

The keeper had expected to play in that Wembley clash with Chelsea, which United lost, and is extremely down about being overlooked; Romero having been United’s preferred shot-stopper in the competition.

De Gea is expected to stay as the club’s first-choice keeper in the coming season and with Dean Henderson set to replace him should his blunder continue, Romero feels that his position in the team will not be guaranteed and hence the talk of a possible move.

Solskjaer played Romero in every round of the Carabao Cup earlier this season, only to drop him in favour of De Gea once United reached the semi-final stage against Manchester City.

The Argentina international has 12 months to run on his existing deal at United though the club has the option to extend that by a further 12 months and should he leave, United is expected to demand a fee of around £4m for his services.
