Man United have a goalkeeping decision to make, with Sergio Romero seemingly on the chopping block…
The Argentine goalkeeper has been a phenomenal servant for Manchester United, while Sergio Romero’s clean sheet record speaks for itself.
That’s due to the emergence of the talented 23-year-old, Dean Henderson, who is set to challenge David de Gea for the starting job – while pushing Romero down to third choice.
Apparently, Romero is now ‘out in the cold’ with the Express citing Sky Sports News’ Kaveh Solhekol, who is claiming interest from both Aston Villa and Chelsea.
Romero has been a brilliant player for United. That fact will never change. However, it feels like he’s no longer willing to be second-choice, nevermind third in line.
He’s at that stage in his career where regular football is an absolute must. At this juncture, United just cannot offer him that. Plus, I still feel Romero is feeling pretty upset at being dropped for both the FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals.
The timing feels right for Man United to move away from Sergio Romero
United have been blessed with some brilliant goalies. Romero has never let us down, though I’d rather move on from him a year too early rather than a year too late. Keeping ahold of the 33-year-old at this point would probably mean selling Henderson. I’d rather keep the latter.
A move to Villa would make sense. Romero would stay in the Premier League and start games with regularity. At Chelsea, he’d probably find himself in a similar situation to where he’s at now. He’d be behind Kepa and Edouard Mendy. Unless he just wants to collect a hefty wage and play a handful of games every season, it just doesn’t seem like the right move for him.
