Sergio Romero is “seething” after being denied a move to Everton and is demanding talks with Manchester United chief Ed Woodward, according to the Daily Star.
It’s no secret the experienced Argentine wanted out of Old Trafford this summer – his wife rather let the cat out of the bag there.
But who can blame Romero for seeking a fresh start?
This is a man who hasn’t made a Premier League appearance since May 2018 and, with Dean Henderson returning to provide competition for David de Gea, is now even further from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans.
A deadline-day move to Everton promised to hand Romero a clean slate and, potentially, a chance to play regular first-team football.
Jordan Pickford, after all, is hardly in the form of his life at Goodison Park.
But Everton were understandably against the idea of paying £10 million for a soon-to-be 34-year-old, turning instead to low-cost alternative Robin Olsen.
And Romero was left fuming at the United board for making his departure nigh-on impossible.
The Star reports the 96-time international is desperate to hold “urgent talks” with Solskjaer and Woodward next week.
Romero could even ask for the remainder of his £100,000-a-week contract, which is due to expire next summer, to be terminated.
And, who knows, perhaps the Everton train hasn’t left the station yet? Olsen is only on loan from Roma after all, potentially opening the door for Romero to join in a permanent capacity.
