According to James Ducker of the Telegraph, and tweeted out by utdreport, United’s demands for a substantial fee for Romero on top of his £90,000-a-week wages have seen a number of parties lose interest in the player.
The Argentina international has been a great backup goalkeeper for the Red Devils and has made his fair share of appearances as David De Gea’s understudy. He has played in 61 games for United, conceding only 27 goals and keeping 39 clean sheets, per Transfermarkt.
However, with Dean Henderson back and the Englishman starting ahead of the Argentinian in the Carabao Cup vs Luton Town, Romero has dropped further down the pecking order, so is not needed desperately at United.
He would probably like to move on to play some more football, whilst United clearly want some money, but it seems like if they want to let him go, they might have to lower their valuation of the player, and a lot of fans are not happy that the club are struggling to sell him – one was stunned that their second string ‘keeper was on such a high wage.
