Man United and Liverpool goalkeeping target reveals desire to leave club

Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who was targeted by Manchester United and Liverpool, has expressed his desire to move to a bigger club this summer, Express reports.

Romero was heavily linked with a move out of Sampdoria after starring for Argentina in last year’s World Cup in Brazil, but the shot-stopper decided to stay in the Italian Serie A for another season.

But with the 28-year-old’s contract set to expire at the end of the campaign, Romero has revealed that he is open to all possibilities in order to further his career.

Romero said: “My next objective is a big club. This is my dream. In June I’ll leave Sampdoria and then we’ll see what happens.

“I can decide my destiny autonomously, but I have no certainties yet. I’m open to everything, from remaining in Italy to moving to Spain or England.

“I want a top club where I can prove all my quality.”

This will spark huge interest at Man United amid rumours that number-one goalkeeper David de Gea will be the subject of a mega summer bid from Real Madrid.

The European champions are desperately keen to replace veteran Iker Casillas with the Red Devils star, with the Madrid captain struggling for form this season.

Meanwhile Liverpool will also be monitoring the situation, as Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is hoping to provide some stiff competition for Simon Mignolet between the sticks.
