Everton fans react as Manchester United stopper Sergio Romero is linked

The Argentine has been bumped down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Everton are thought to be targeting a new goalkeeper with Manchester United stopper Sergio Romero on their shortlist, according to The Times.

The Toffees have won three games out of three so far this season and things look to be on the up for the club under Carlo Ancelotti.

A new goalkeeper could get Jordan Pickford back in business though, with some questions marks raised over the England number one in recent times.

It is thought that Romero is interested in joining United having dropped down the ranks behind David de Gea and Dean Henderson in the pecking order.

Everton have Jonas Lossl and Joao Virginia in reserve and it would seem that Ancelotti isn’t convinced either understudy is adequate competition for Pickford.

The Argentine goalkeeper earns £70,000-a-week at Old Trafford and the chance to feature more prominently at Goodison Park must be attractive.

Although Pickford would likely remain the number one goalkeeper, Romero would see a far clearer path to the first-team than the one at United.

Following links to the man with 96 caps for Argentina, supporters have taken to Twitter to give their opinion on the deal.

Here is a selection of Tweets from Everton supporters regarding the possibility of signing Romero.
