Everton in advanced talks to bring Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero
Sergio Romero is getting closer to Everton day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.
The latest reports in England suggest that Everton are in advanced talks to bring Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.
The Argentina international joined Manchester United from Sampdoria on a free transfer in July 2015. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
The 33-year-old is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in Argentina.
Romero is out of the picture at United, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign a new goalkeeper and Romero is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Sergio Romero and believes he can get the most out of the Argentina international.
According to the report, “Manchester United shot-stopper Sergio Romero could be on the move. The Red Devils backup is now third choice after the arrival of Dean Henderson. And The Sun has claimed Romero could be set for a transfer to Everton, where he will compete with Jordan Pickford for a starting spot. The 33-year-old wants game time, and has started talks with Carlo Ancelotti and Everton representatives. Their keeper Pickford has made several high profile errors, and could lose his place if Romero arrives. The Argentine has one year on his United deal and the club would want roughly £6 million for his signature.”

If Everton can agree on a fee with United, the deal should be easy to complete.
Good signing for Everton?
If Romero is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Everton.
A move to Everton is exactly what Sergio Romero needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
Romero has all the skillset required to be a success story at Everton. Therefore, it makes sense for Carlo Ancelotti to step up his attempts to bring the Argentina goalkeeper to Premier League side.
It will be interesting to see if the Toffees make their move for the 33-year-old in the coming days.
