Manchester United Player Eyeing January Move To Save World Cup Place

Manchester United Player Eyeing January Move To Save World Cup Place

Sergio Romero is reportedly eyeing a January move away from Manchester United in order to save his place at the World Cup.

The 30-year old was signed from Sampdoria by Louis van Gaal in 2014 but he has played understudy to the outstanding David De Gea and only made 32 appearances in all competitions.

The Argentine was Jose Mourinho's choice throughout the Europa League last season, where he started every game and got his hands on the trophy in Stockholm after victory over Ajax.

He's made four appearances this term, two in the Champions League and two in the League Cup, but hasn't made a Premier League appearance and he doesn't look likely to do so, given how consistent De Gea has been.

According to the Daily Mail, Romero, who started the 2014 final against Germany, is concerned that his Argentina place is danger for the showpiece next summer and he is open to moving on in order to receive regular game-time.

Even playing as back-up to De Gea, Romero has still remained No.1 for Argentina throughout qualifying and would likely still be Jorge Sampaoli's top pick for the tournament in Russia.

However, with his minutes on the pitch, particularly in high-profile games, still restricted, it's said that Romero has told his advisors he would prefer to play regular football at another club, even if it is a step down, in order to get that all-important match sharpness ahead of the big event.

It likely won't be en easy process for him to move on though, given that Mourinho does trust in him and knows he is up to standard whenever he is handed a start.

Weirdly, Arsenal have been installed as favourites to land him, according to the bookies.
