When it became clear Sergio Romero would be leaving Manchester United at the end of his contract in June, the widespread view was that he shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a new club.
Despite finding himself behind David De Gea and Dean Henderson in the pecking order at Old Trafford, Romero was still considered a goalkeeper of a good standard. At 34-years-of-age, the stopper has a lot of football left in front of him should he so wish, and multiple clubs were linked.
That started off with South American sides such as Boca Juniors, and then several Spanish options, including Granada, were pushed forward for the player.
Yet, almost three months after his Manchester United exit, Romero still hasn’t secured himself a new club.
Sky Italia report, via Goal Italia, that he could now sign for Spezia, who are 17th out of 20 in Serie A so far this season.
They haven’t been convinced by Dutch goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet, and Romero is one of a couple of free agents, the other being Antonio Mirante, under consideration to replace him.
