According to ESPN, Everton are battling Leeds United in the race to sign Manchester United’s Sergio Romero this summer.
The Argentine has been David de Gea’s deputy since the day he arrived and it looks like that isn’t going to change. Romero might even drop down to become Manchester United’s third choice if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides to keep hold of Dean Henderson next season.
Romero, 33, is at the age where he needs to play. A move away is the only solution if he wants regular game time and it looks likely this summer.
Leeds United are looking to bolster their squad to be prepared for their first season back in the Premier League. The Toffees, on the other hand, could do with some competition for Jordan Pickford, who is the undisputed number one at Goodison Park.
Pickford has had his struggles this season. The Englishman has made quite a few mistakes in goal, which could potentially cost him a place in the national team considering how well the likes of Henderson, Nick Pope and even Aaron Ramsdale have done.
Romero would push Pickford for the number one spot
Everton have massive ambitions for the near future. Carlo Ancelotti will look to bring in quality players to bolster the squad this summer and Romero could well prove to be a very smart addition.
The Argentine, a Europa League winner with Manchester United, holds a stunning record of 38 clean sheets in 59 games since joining the Red Devils in 2015. Romero could help push Pickford to be at his best throughout the season, which can only be a good thing for the club.
However, it is unlikely that he would be a regular starter for Everton straight away. That leaves him in the same predicament as he is in now, but Toffees fans seem to be open to the idea of signing Romero this summer.
