Spanish club held talks with £70,000-a-week Man United goalkeeper

Valencia have contacted Red Devils to discuss the addition of Sergio Romero, with the Spanish club prepared to pay £6m for the shot-stopper. Man United should look to move on Argentina international after deciding to keep David de Gea as No.1, while also keeping promising goalkeeper Dean Henderson at the club this campaign.

Sergio has done a solid job as Red Devils backup shot-stopper since arriving in the summer of 2015, with most of the goalkeeper’s action coming in cup tournaments. Romero was left angered by the Norwegian coach’s decision to play David De Gea in last campaign’s cup semi-final defeats with Chelsea and Sevilla.

The 33-year-old shot-stopper earns £65,000-a-week, the footballer is certainly the kind of quality signing that could help Valencia improve on their average 9th place finish last campaign. Argentine has been an understudy for several campaigns but felt his big opportunity of fame was snatched away from him when Solskjaer recalled David De Gea.

With Sergio in the final year of his deal with the Red Devils, Man United should prioritise on cashing in on the player before the window closes, especially as playing time is unlikely this term. Sergio has kept 39 clean sheets in his 61 games for Red Devils, the goalkeeper has also won 96 caps for the Argentina national team over the years.

Now South American insiders claim ex-Sampdoria shot-stopper Sergio Romero wants to go to a new club and play. And Red Devils chiefs are open to him leaving and currently working on the idea. The Sergio Romero development will impact on Dean Henderson, who last month signed a mega new five-year contract on £120,000-a-week.
