Jose Mourinho Determined to Agree the Deal For £60,000-a-week South American
JOSE MOURINHO is planning to reward keeper Sergio Romero with a new contract.
The Argentina international has impressed in the Europa League this term and is set to start Wednesday’s final against Ajax.
But he is about to enter the final 12 months of the three-year deal he signed in 2015.
United have an option to extend Romero’s deal for a further campaign.
But, according to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, Mourinho wants to keep him sweet amid uncertainty over No.1 keeper David De Gea’s future.
Romero, who has 87 caps for his country, is keen to boost his £60,000-a-week wages.
Reports in Italy earlier this month suggested Romero is wanted by Inter Milan.
However, he said earlier this month that he does not expect to return to Serie A.
“I doubt I’ll be in Italy next year,” Romero said.
“I am very happy in Manchester, they make me feel important and I hope to stay for a long time.”
Romero has kept seven clean sheets in 11 Europa League appearances this term.
