It’s been a while since the Argentine media started making clear they want Sergio Romero out of Manchester United.
Since the Red Devils confirmed Dean Henderson will be with them this season, there’s been an urge for the South American player to go and get minutes somewhere else.
Website El Intransigente has a story today in which they say Romero is having a ‘terrible’ time at Old Trafford, and that could ‘accelerate’ his return to Racing.
The Argentine side have been teasing with this transfer lately, and now club president Victor Blanco has spoken to the local press about the possibility.
“A player who comes from European football doesn’t come to make an economic difference and always has the doors open, as is the case with Sergio. You have to come for the shirt, for the feeling of belonging and for wanting to give something back to the club that saw you grow up,” he said.
Since Romero was very young when sold to Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, Blanco said it’d be important to have him back before he retires.
“Some boys lived difficult moments or didn’t live the ideal time at the academy. Perhaps, it’s a time when they can come to enjoy what they couldn’t as kids.”
Sergio Romero joined Manchester United in a free move from Sampdoria in 2015. He’s only made 61 appearances for the club in five years, and it seems things are only getting worse with the rise of Dean Henderson.
