Sergio Romero ended his six-year spell at Manchester United and left Old Trafford as a free agent, when his contract expired at the end of last season.
The Argentine didn’t feature for the Red Devils last term as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preferred David de Gea, Dean Henderson and Lee Grant ahead of him.
It was believed the 34-year-old would have no trouble in finding a new club since he was available on a free transfer in the summer, but the truth proved rather different.
Towards the end of September, Sky Italia reported Romero could join Spezia, but he is now edging closer towards sealing a move to Serie A side Venezia FC
That’s according to today’s report from Sky, who say Venezia FC have ‘closed’ the deal to sign the keeper.
Spezia’s interest in the South American gets a mention. They carefully evaluated signing Romero, However, in the end, they decided to rely on Antonio Mirante, who left AS Roma after his contract with them expired back in June.
While Venezia wait for Luca Lezzerini to return from injury, the Italian club are now ‘ready to reinforce’ the goalkeeping position with Romero’s arrival.
More than three months after completing his United exit, Romero’s struggles in finding in a new club is about to come to an end.
