Sergio Romero is still hoping to leave Manchester United in search of first-team football with the MLS transfer window potentially offering the goalkeeper an exit.
Romero was linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer after falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the return of Dean Henderson from a two-season loan spell at Sheffield United demoting the Argentine to third choice.
Everton were reportedly interested in a deadline day loan swoop for the 33-year-old as they sought competition and cover for the under-fire Jordan Pickford, before turning their attentions to Robin Olsen after the Red Devils pushed for a permanent departure for the shot-stopper.
United’s demands prompted an angry response from the player’s wife via social media, who hit out at the club’s treatment of Romero and called for respect, pointing to the goalkeeper’s service – including routinely being dropped for semi-finals and finals despite being the club’s ‘cup goalkeeper’ – since moving to Manchester five years ago.

According to the Mail, Romero is still hoping to leave the club and the MLS window presents an opportunity for him to find a new club, with the transfer window open for US sides until October 29.
No specific clubs have been mentioned as being interested in the services of a player who is close to a century of caps for Argentina, whilst open markets including Russia and the English Championship offer alternative exit routes.
Romero has been excluded from Manchester United’s 25-man Champions League squad, along with 28-year-old defender, Phil Jones.
