Sergio Romero addresses his future at Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan


Sergio Romero claims he would like to return to Argentina to play for Racing Club again one day, having turned down a deal from Boca Juniors in the January transfer window.

The Argentine has spent much of his time at Old Trafford covering David de Gea, but has seen more game time after impressing Jose Mourinho this season with a number of clean sheets and world-class saves.

He played in the Europa League final on Wednesday and has been rewarded for his performances this campaign, making an unbelievable step up in his development since he first arrived at Old Trafford.

Speaking about a potential move, Romero claims he hasn’t given any thought to speculation.

“Racing Club is my home, I’m a fan, I wish I could return,” he said.

“I still have two years of contract here at the club.

“I asked my representative not to tell me anything before the end of the season, so I can concentrate.

“I’m happy that [keeper] Agustin Orion is in the club [Racing] and can demonstrate his quality.

“I spoke with [Boca Juniors manager] Guillermo [Barros Schelotto] about the interest of Boca six months ago and I thanked him, because it is very important that such a club is interested in me, but I was not wrong to stay here because I knew I was going to tackle more.

“The day that I have no more place in Europe, I hope I can return to Racing.

“It’s my house, I left there, I lived there, I know them all.”

When he first arrived at United, there was no way I would have been behind Romero playing so many games in the Europa League, but he’s been increasingly impressive in between the sticks and is now getting to the level where some believe he could replace de Gea should the Spaniard leave this summer.

He’s been brilliant so far and there’s much more to come from the Argentinian as he continues to win silverware at United.
