The Argentine goalkeeper has slipped further down the pecking order at Old Trafford and wants out in order to find regular game time – with a move to MLS being mooted.
Romero’s United colleagues have reportedly expressed their discontent at the treatment of the goalkeeper’s treatment.
They believe he was priced out of a last-minute loan to Premier League rivals Everton, where he would have had a chance of regular football.
However, United set an £8m asking price for the veteran and clubs have shown a clear unwillingness to stump up that much.
United’s refusal to accept a straight loan move without a fee appears to have spoiled Romero’s chances of first-team football this season, as the Argentine has also been omitted from the club’s 25-man Europa League squad.
The Argentina international has been a fantastic back-up to David De Gea since his arrival from Sampdoria in 2015 and he’s shown his class on countless occasions by respectfully stepping aside in the latter stage of the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League for the Spaniard, even if he was first choice in the earlier rounds.
With just hours left before the deadline passes, Romero’s wife has hinted that he’s now set to stay at the club by taking a dig at United’s board for failing to ‘respect’ the Argentine.
‘Sergio Romero worked hard for this club,’ wrote Eliana Guercio.
‘Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him.
‘He helped the team reach 4 finals/ semifinals and then he was left on the bench only to lose them all.
‘It is time for them to return the opportunity and let him go.
‘RESPECT FOR ONCE!!!!’
