Report: Everton interested in Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero
Everton are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who is available this summer when his contract expires.
According to the Daily Mail, the Toffees are prepared to battle Juventus for the 34-year-old’s signature.
It is explained that the South American shot-stopper will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season.
The report explains that Everton are renewing interest in the Argentine after wanting him last season, and believe he can come to Goodison Park to push their number one Jordan Pickford.
Romero, who hasn’t played this season for a Man United side sat second in the Premier League, slipped behind both David De Gea and Dean Henderson in the pecking order at Old Trafford.
However, 96 Argentina caps shows the kind of pedigree he’s got.
He’s been an excellent understudy to De Gea during six years at Man United, but the £70,000-a-week (Spotrac) player now looks set to move on.
With Robin Olsen due to return to Roma this summer from his loan at Everton, the Merseyside giants could do with some experienced cover in net.
Romero has an astonishing record of 39 clean sheets in 61 Man United appearances, so he’s someone that could give Pickford that extra push to get the best out of him.
Carlo Ancelotti’s squad look like they may fall short of qualifying for European football, albeit that could change if results go their way in tomorrow’s final day, but they may only be a few additions away from finishing a few positions higher in the table.
