Man Utd star Sergio Romero training in Argentina as he awaits January transfer

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has been training in his native Argentina ahead of an expected move in the January transfer window.

Romero wanted a move away from Old Trafford in the summer after being replaced as David de Gea's No2 by Dean Henderson.

The 33-year-old pushed for a loan and was linked with Everton, but ended up staying at United – sparking a furious reaction from the shot-stopper’s wife, who claimed his move was blocked.

He has not played a minute for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season, and now looks set to leave when the transfer window re-opens next week.

And Romero has been back in his home country as he maintains his fitness ahead of a potential move.

He has been in Buenos Aires working with Barracas Central coach Ale Santillán, who took to Instagram to post clips of the Argentine international working on his shot-stopping.

Romero, who has played 96 times for his country, has made just 61 appearances for United since joining in 2015.

His expected exit puts Dean Henderson "in a real predicament", according to former England keeper Paul Robinson.

Henderson returned to United in the summer to challenge De Gea for the No1 spot following an impressive two seasons on loan at Sheffield United.

He has made just six appearances so far as he targets a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for next summer's postponed Euro 2020 finals.

Speaking to Football Insider , Robinson said: “Dean Henderson knew the situation when he went back to Manchester United in the summer. He knew it was possible that he would not play.

“I think his issue is that Ole has burnt his bridges with Romero. I think Romero will be pushing to leave first in January.

“I cannot see Manchester United allowing Romero and Henderson to leave in the new year. Henderson could be in a real predicament.”

Meanwhile, one club interested in Romero are Racing Club, where the Argentine started his career in 2005.

The Preimera Division side have made it clear they would welcome him back.

Speaking to Radio Colonia earlier this month, Racing chief Blanco said: "I dream of bringing Chiquito [Romero], but he has to come with the conviction of wanting to return, knowing that he’s not going to earn in dollars or the amount of money he earns in Europe."
