Man Utd nearing solution to Sergio Romero stand-off with transfer decision close

Manchester United’s stand-off with keeper Sergio Romero is nearing a resolution.

The Argentine, who joined the Reds in June 2015, was far from happy in the summer at being third-choice stopper at Old Trafford behind David de Gea and Dean Henderson.

He wanted out then but United were unable to find any club willing to pay their £5million asking price.

That led to a complete breakdown in relationship between the parties with neither willing to budge on their position.

Even Romero’s wife got involved in the dispute as she blasted the club on social media for blocking his exit.

United, who omitted Romero from their Premier League and Champions League squads, have even threatened to exercise an option to extend his current contract, which ends in June, by another year – in order to get a better price.

However, it now seems they are ready to off-load Romero, 33, in the January window at a reduced £2.5m.

That will come as a major relief to the South American stopper, capped 96 times by his country, who feared he could end up on the football scrapheap if they refused to let him leave in the New Year.
