Sergio ROMERO of Manchester United linked to River Plate


Manchester United’s Sergio ROMERO is being linked with River Plate.

The Argentinian giants are reportedly interested in signing the goalkeeper. Ever since Marcelo BAROVERO’s departure to Necaxa, River Plate’s goalkeeping situation has not been too stable. Both Augusto BATALLA and German LUX have made some mistakes which has reportedly made coach Marcelo GALLARDO look for a replacement in between the sticks.

It was announced on Fox Sports Argentina that River Plate are looking into signing ROMERO from Manchester United. It appears as though ROMERO is constantly being linked to a move in every transfer window but with Manchester United recently knocked out of the league cup, matches for the club’s number two goalkeeper will be hard to come by with David DE GEA far and ahead as the number 1 starter for Jose MOURINHO.

With the World Cup in June, it could be possible for ROMERO to make a move in an attempt to get regular playing time.


    • I think Man Utd bid was 70m plus Mkhitaryan but Juve rejected, that’s right. Juve could’ve sold him for 130m at the beginning of the this season but nobody knew things will get bad between Dybala and Allegri to this extent.

      Juve is famous for cashing in on their star players and it seems for me their plan (before Dybala and Allegri fall out) was to sell Dybala after the WC for at least 150m.

    • Their initial bid was rejected. Seems that Independiente want more money for their captain. Ajax, Freiburg and Borussia Monchengladbach are still in the run.

    • Why will Argentina sack Sampaoli? I can see some progression during the last few games: He switched from Dybala-Messi to Di Maria-Messi in his 3-4-2-1 which worked better in the last qualifying game. After that he tried 3-3-3-1 which allowed to achieve very high possession rate with good balance. I don’t think many coach can do better than him in few games. Will be a disaster to change coach now and repeat the whole process again for the new coach.

      • Where is all this nonsense talk about Firing Sampaoli coming from!??
        not to mention that his contract clearly states that he remains the manager until the conclusion of the 2018WC.

  1. Since there is no indication that anybody else would replace Romero in goal for us, a move to any team where he could be a starting goalie is a good thing.
