Man United goalkeeper expected to return home this summer

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero could return back to his country amid interest from River Plate, according to reports from Goal.

Romero started the season as Man United’s first-choice goalkeeper in the middle of Real Madrid’s pursuit of David de Gea, but the deal fell through in the last minute causing the Argentine to be dropped back to the bench.

And although he is a positive influence in the dressing room, the club expect Romero to leave in the summer even if De Gea finally completes a move to Madrid at the same time.

The Red Devils only brought Romero into the first team due to manager Louis van Gaal’s bust-up with then back-up shot-stopper Victor Valdes, even managing to keep five competitive clean sheets.

But since De Gea’s reinstatement, Romero has been unused, with River Plate eyeing a move for him at the end of the European season.

Romero, 28, was signed from Sampodoria for free in the summer of 2015, making seven appearances for the club.
