Lots of Everton fans have been reacting as Sergio Romero has been left out of Manchester United’s Premier League squad, per Phil Kirkbride.
As per the Liverpool Echo journalist, the Goodison Park faithful had enquired about signing the Argentina international on Transfer Deadline Day, but a move to the Merseyside club never materialised in the end.
Does Romero start for Everton over Pickford?
However, there may still be an opportunity for Carlo Ancelotti’s team to sign him in the January transfer window, as Romero has clearly fallen out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 33-year old kept a quite impressive 12 clean sheets in just 17 matches for the Old Trafford faithful over all competitions in the 2019/20 term, coupled with the concession of only five goals (Transfermarkt).
Indeed, if the Toffees decide not to make Robin Olsen’s loan move from AS Roma a permanent one in the summer, then Romero could provide a potentially cut-price option to the Blues.
Everton fan reaction to Romero news
These EFC supporters reacted to the news on Twitter, with one fan labelling the goalkeeper as ‘quality’ and the decision to leave him out of the squad at Old Trafford as ‘shocking’:
Let's go back in for him in January, for less money.
