A number of Manchester United players are set to leave the club at the end of this month when their contracts run out. One such player is Sergio Romero.
The Argentine goalkeeper arrived at Old Trafford back in 2015. And since then, he has made 61 appearances for the club across all competitions according to stats from Transfermarkt.
For a long-time, he was the back-up to David de Gea at the club. But since the return of Dean Henderson from his loan spell at Sheffield United, he has moved further down the pecking order. And with his contract set to run out at the end of this month, he will be a free agent soon.
Romero has been linked with a return to Argentina for quite some time now but it looks like he will remain in Europe. As reported by Football Italia (via Manchester Evening News), he said in an Instagram live:
"“I was let go by United and we are working to see where I could play next.“Thank God, I have several offers in Europe. The clubs who asked after me are all in Europe, so we’ll see which is the best option.“It could be England or Italy, we’ll see. And if it’s Spain, that will be a new experience, but I also have to consider my daughters, who are growing up.”"

Manchester United might have a lack of options at goalkeeper soon
Romero might not be the only goalkeeper set to head out of Old Trafford in the near future though. Questions marks are there over the future of De Gea as well, who might no longer be the first-choice between the posts at the club after almost a decade of holding the first-team gloves.
It is unlikely though that he would want to sit on the bench in the upcoming season. As a result, it is very possible that the Spaniard could leave the club in search of first-team football in the summer.
On the other hand, it does look like Tom Heaton will be making a return to Old Trafford this summer on a free transfer, when his contract with Aston Villa runs out.
Heaton came through the club’s youth system but has never made a senior appearance for Manchester United.
