At 29 Years, Why Is It Essential for This Copa America Star To leave Manchester United At All Costs

Sergio Romero

Manchester United have quite a few stars that were not given too many opportunities to showcase their talents under former boss Louis van Gaal, prior to the Dutch manager’s sacking. The former Bayern Munich and Ajax boss did not win too much during his tenure with the Red Devils, though he ended his time at Old Trafford with an FA Cup triumph last term. With the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club, there are high expectations from him now and the Portuguese manager will look to rebuild the team.

Some of the players who might have been under used during the Van Gaal era, might now want to make an impression on the former Chelsea boss to give them an opportunity to display their skills.

One such player would be an Argentine international Sergio Romero, who has been on the bench watching David de Gea  start game after game for the Premier League giants, while he sits on the bench. The keeper was brought in as a backup, in case the Spaniard left for Real Madrid last summer.

There have been rumours previously stating that the former Sampdoria man could be set to leave The Theater of Dreams soon, after just a single season with United.

Well, whether the 29 year old keeper should now remain at the club or not is the major question with some interest from other clubs in his services and De Gea’s return to Madrid, still being stalled.

The answer can still be a blunt “NO”. Romero has future at the club till the time De Gea is fit and performing like he is at the moment. The Spain international has now taken over from Iker Casillas for the national team as well and is getting better day by day.

So does the former Monaco loanee have a chance of displacing him at the club?? Obviously not. If he is probably happy playing in the smaller cup competitions, if Mourinho decides to rest De Gea, then he can stay. However, the new manager is not really known to change his squad too much, unless really need to do so.

Further, even if De Gea did leave by chance, a new top keeper would come in with that money, who might take over as the first choice keeper, with Romero once again playing second fiddle to him.

Not an ideal situation once again, for a keeper who surely deserves more respect than that. So far, the shot-stopper has managed only four league appearances for United and is discontent due to the lack of playing time. He can stay and fight for a spot in Mourinho’s team, though it might not just be worth the effort.

He still has quite some time left in his career and would be better off making a name for himself at some other club, playing regularly, rather than just sitting on the bench and praying for an injury or suspension.
