Romero To Be Given His Chance?
Manchester United could promote second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero if David de Gea leaves the club this summer.
De Gea has one more year left to run on his contract at Old Trafford. The Spain international is dragging his heels over a new deal amidst reports that Paris Saint-Germain want him to run down his contract and leave for nothing in the summer of 2020. United have offered him a contract worth £350,000 a week.
According to the Daily Mail, Romero could be given the opportunity to step up if de Gea goes. The 32-year-old has made only seven Premier League appearances since his move from Serie A side Sampdoria in 2014. The rest of his 37 first-team games have come in domestic and European cup competitions.
But United are closely monitoring the progress of 22-year-old Dean Henderson. The product of the club’s academy spent last season on loan at Sheffield United where he played in all 46 Championship games as the Blades won promotion to the Premier League. Henderson is expected to return to Bramall Lane to gain experience in the top flight as United consider him as the long-term successor to de Gea.
Lukaku In Inter Link
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku could be a target for Inter Milan once Antonio Conte is appointed manager of the Serie A side.
The Belgium international managed just 12 Premier League goals for United last season – 15 in all competitions – and he fell down the pecking order towards the end of the campaign/
Conte is expected to take over from Luciano Spalletti as Inter boss following the final match of the season this weekend. According to reports he will instruct the club to make a move for Lukaku.
United are expected to demand the whole of the £75 million they paid Everton for Lukaku in 2017as a transfer fee. Inter will expect to pay a whole lot less. The situation could be resolved by a season-long loan with United making a significant contribution to his wages.
Inter need a win against Atalanta to ensure qualification for next season’s Champions League.
