According to Goal.com, Argentine giants, River Plate, are determined to sign the highly-rated Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero when the summer transfer window re-opens. It’s believed that River are keen on acquiring the out-of-favour United stopper a year on from his move to the Premier League on a free transfer. The 29-year-old has made 10 appearances for the club this season but since the reinstatement of David De Gea has been forced to sit on the bench for long periods of the season. Reportedly, Ligue 1 side AS Monaco are also monitoring Romero and want to re-sign him.
It’s widely believed that River bosses are unhappy with current No.1 choice Augusto Batalla’s displays and are searching for a quality replacement.
The regular playing time is especially important for goalkeepers. There is a goalkeeping crisis at Argentina, but Romeo, who earned 70 international caps, may still lost his place in national team if stays at United as De Gea’s back-up. Accepting this, Romero’s departure from Old Trafford makes sense.
Also River vice-president Matias Patanian confirmed, that they are interested in signing Romero.
