Man Utd stopper linked with surprise move to direct Premier League rivals

Manchester United are reportedly ready to listen offers for rumoured Chelsea transfer target Sergio Romero.

The battle for the No.1 spot at Old Trafford is set to intensify this campaign following Dean Henderson’s return from two-year loan spell.

Argentina international stopper has acted as understudy to first choice goalkeeper David de Gea for the last five years, however, is likely to see his first-team minutes limited further if he remains at the club.

The 33-year-old is therefore keen to depart from Old Trafford ahead of the next season, and The Express claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward are willing to listen to offers for his signature.

Chelsea, and several Premier League teams have been credited with an interest in Argentinian stopper, whose deal expires next summer.

There is yet to be any official deal from the interested parties, though, despite the new Premier League campaign getting underway on Saturday.

The West London club are believed to be on the verge to agreeing a deal for Rennes stopper Edouard Mendy, which would end their interest in Romero and Argentina will have to loos elsewhere in order to continue his career in the English top-tier.
