Manchester United star says goodbye ahead of possible January transfer deal

Man Utd: Solskjaer admits Fernandes may need rest

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has said his goodbyes to staff at Old Trafford and is not expected to return to the club, according to reports. Romero has fallen down the pecking order with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making Dean Henderson his backup to David De Gea.

Romero has not been at training since the start of the year and has returned to Argentina.

He is said to have said his goodbyes to staff at United’s Carrington training complex before he exits the club.

Romero has six months left on his contract but could seal a switch this month if the right offer is made.

The Argentina international was denied a switch to Everton on the last transfer deadline day which left him fuming with the club.

The Manchester Evening News claim Romero is training in Buenos Aires, with a move to Boca Juniors possible.

The 33-year-old is wanting regular playing time before the Copa America this summer due to be held in Argentina and Colombia.

United do have the option to trigger a year extension on Romero’s contract but are not expected to do so.

The goalkeeper was not included in the Premier League and Champions League squads signalling the end of his career at Old Trafford.

After Romero was not allowed to move on deadline day his wife Eliana Guercio, accused the Red Devils of showing no respect to her husband.

Following the debacle Solskjaer said his job was to win matches and not keep players happy.

“You know, players are happy when they win well and win games, I am too, it’s not my job to keep them happy,” Solskjaer explained.

“It’s to pick players to get results, and up to them to be fit and be ready when called upon.”

Romero’s countryman Marcos Rojo is also expected to leave Old Trafford this month.

United return to action against Watford on Saturday evening in the FA Cup third round after bowing out of the Carabao Cup following defeat to Manchester City last night.

After the defeat, Paul Pogba said: “It is disappointing because it is not the first one against City at home. We are disappointed with the result, obviously, with the two goals from set-pieces.

“It is very annoying to lose because there is a trophy behind all of this. We have to do better, we have to do better for sure.

“It is about details. Details make the difference all of the time and now when it is big games like this, it is details and at set-pieces we lost. We have to learn because it is not the first time.

“We have to learn, we have to get through this because, after this, there are big games coming up. Next time, we will do better, we will do better.”
