Sergio Romero is set to join newly-promoted Serie A side Venezia on a free transfer
with talks in the ‘final stages. That’s according to transfer specialist Fabrizo Romano
who has revealed Romero, 34, is on the brink of joining the Italian side
There was a time at Manchester United when Romero was widely regarded as one
of the world’s finest goalkeeping deputies, but he would soon dramatically fall out
with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when he was dropped in the 2020 Europa League semi-
Solskjaer started David de Gea in that semi-final defeat against Sevilla and
Sergio Romero was deeply hurt by the decision. He subsequently asked to leave
United that summer,
but his proposed loan move to Everton was blocked – the feud then worsened, though.
Romero’s wife took to Instagram to hit out against the decision to block his loan
move on deadline day and the stopper was permanently axed from Solskjaer’s plans,
which meant he spent last season frozen out until his contract at the club ran down.
