Manchester United outcast Sergio Romero’s MLS move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami falls through, with £100,000-a-week fourth choice goalkeeper now set to stay until January
- The Argentine has fallen down pecking order at Manchester United
- David de Gea, Dean Henderson and Lee Grant are preferred options at club
- The 33-year-old keeper is on £100,000-a-week deal until the end of the season
Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has been left in limbo after a move to Major League Soccer fell through.
Talks with David Beckham’s new club Inter Miami came to nothing with the MLS transfer window due to close in the early hours of Friday morning.
The Argentine goalkeeper is now set to stay at United until January – or even the end of his contract in June – unless the two sides can agree terms to rip up his £100,000-a-week deal before then.

However, it’s understood that Romero is in no mood to do United any favours after being upset at his treatment by the club.
The 33-year-old’s hopes of joining Everton were dashed when United demanded a fee, and he was then left out of both the Premier League and Champions League squads this season following Dean Henderson’s return to Old Trafford as No.2 to David de Gea.
Romero, who helped United reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Europa League last season only to be replaced by De Gea in both competitions, has now effectively dropped to fourth choice behind Lee Grant and there is no possibility of him playing for the club again.
His wife Eliana Guercio criticised United on social media and some of his teammates are also said to be unhappy at how the club have handled the situation.
The former Sampdoria and AZ Alkmaar keeper returned from Argentina earlier this month and is training at Carrington following a quarantine period.
