South American Confirms: I want to play for Manchester United Next Season

SERGIO ROMERO is not planning to leave Manchester United this summer.

Argentina international Romero has played second-fiddle to David De Gea since joining United from Sampdoria on a free transfer in 2015.

Reports in Italy earlier this month suggested he is wanted by Inter Milan as a possible replacement for Samir Handanovic.

But Romero, who has a year left on his contract, does not expect to return to Serie A.

“I doubt I’ll be in Italy next year,” Romero told Sky Sports Italia.

“I am very happy in Manchester, they make me feel important and I hope to stay for a long time.”

Romero has been Jose Mourinho’s first-choice stopper in the Europa League this season, keeping seven clean sheets in 11 appearances.

United reached the final following last night’s nail-biting draw at home to Celta Vigo.

Ex-Manchester City striker John Guidetti missed an open goal at the death and Romero exclaimed: “Mamma mia!

“We suffered at the end, it was really tough, but we reached the Europa League final and that was our objective at the start of the season.”
