La Liga side Valencia are allegedly the latest club to enter the race for the signing of Manchester United shot-stopper Sergio Romero.
Spanish outlet Estadio Deportivo reports that the Mestalla side are not happy with the options they have for the role, and are currently evaluating possible signings.
As the player’s deal with the Red Devils expires in June and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed his departure, that gives Los Che a boost in their chase.
Estadio Deportivo adds that ‘everything indicates’ Sergio could be signed for free, and the La Liga outfit are ‘well positioned’ for the move.
The Argentine has obviously been linked to several outfits in his final year of contract with the Red Devils, including sides from his country, where Racing senior figures said they would be glad to have him back.
However, his wife Eliana Guercio has recently stated there are no calls from the South American sides so far, so that should make the player stay in Europe more likely.
Romero signed for Manchester United on a free move from the Italian outfit Sampdoria back in 2015 and has made 61 appearances for United.
In the meantime, Odion Ighalo is keen on taking his career to America when his United deal expires this month.
The Nigerian has been a decent stop-gap for the Red Devils but is seemingly surplus to requirements following the arrival of Edinson Cavani.
Ighalo has not ruled out extending his deal but sees Major League Soccer as an exciting prospect.
“Today, I’m in Manchester but at the end of the month I don’t know where I’m going to be,” he told ESPN.
“I have options. I wait for my agent. If it’s possible I’d like to play in MLS but I have to wait to see if it’s possible.
“The league is doing well and if the opportunity arises then I’d grab it with two hands.”
