Sergio Romero will allegedly soon hold talks with Manchester United to determine his position in the team ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The 33-year-old star has been David de Gea’s understudy at the club since arriving in 2015, making 59 appearances for United in all competitions.
Romero was not happy at being overlooked for the recent FA Cup semi-final versus Chelsea, while he was also not handed an opportunity in the Premier League in spite of De Gea’s patchy form.
Dean Henderson could return to the Red Devils this summer following a loan spell at Sheffield United, which is likely to push the experienced South American further down the pecking order.
According to The Sun, Sergio will hold talks with United about his future and is open to seeking a move should head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make it clear that there is no future for the player at the club.
Leeds United and Everton have both recently been touted with an interest in the Argentina international.
Elsewhere, Manchester United are allegedly still confident that they will land Jadon Sancho this summer, despite claims that the Borussia Dortmund winger prefers a move to Liverpool.
The 20-year-old ace is coming off the back of another stellar season that has seen the player score and assist a combined 33 goals in the Bundesliga.
United have long been considered the frontrunners to land the Manchester City academy product, but it has been claimed that Premier League rivals Liverpool may now hold the advantage.
However, Sky Sports News reports that the Red Devil remain increasingly optimistic of persuading Jadon to choose Old Trafford over Anfield.
Barcelona are considering submitting a fresh bid for Manchester United outcast Diogo Dalot, according to a recent report.
The Catalan side previously tried to sign Dalot back in 2018 when he was at Porto, only for the Portuguese full-back to choose United.
However, Mundo Deportivo states that Barca are ready to make another swoop for the 21-year-old, who has been restricted to just seven starts across all competitions this term.
United are supposedly ready to cash in on Dalot in order to balance their books, with a bid in the region of £10 million possibly being enough to get a deal over the line.
Barca were previously mentioned with Mattia De Sciglio when negotiating with Juventus for the Bosnian star Miralem Pjanic, but they have since ruled out a move for the Italian defender.
A separate report claims that Dalot is one of six first-team players the board are hopeful of offloading this summer if the right proposals are made.
Meantime, Swansea City could be the likely destination for Manchester United ace James Garner, though Sheffield Wednesday are also interested, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Garner made his senior debut for the Red Devils last season and appeared six more times in the senior team this season, including four appearances in the Europa League.
The 19-year-old midfielder is a highly rated prospect at the club, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is well-stocked in midfield, and the board want to loan him out for the more first-team experience.
The Premier League giants want an EFL Championship loan for him and several clubs have stated their interest in landing the young midfielder.
Manchester United’s Chris Smalling is reportedly wanted by four Serie A sides following his performances for Roma this season.
The Englishman has played a key role in the heart of the Roma defence during his loan stint with Paulo Fonseca’s side this term, making 28 top-flight games for the Serie A giants and registering two goals and two assists.
Roma are allegedly keen to strike a permanent deal for the towering central defender, but I Giallorossi are likely to miss out on UCL qualification unless they can achieve UEL glory in August.
Roma’s financial struggles are understood to be hindering talks between the two clubs, with Calciomercato claiming that United are holding out for a sum of £18.2m while Roma are refusing to fork out more than £16.3m.
As a result, Inter Milan, Napoli and Juventus are all said to be keeping a close eye on developments and are prepared to engage in a bidding war for Smalling should the Rome-based side fail to agree a deal with United.
The 30-year-old’s existing contract at the Old Trafford outfit is set to expire at the end of the 2021-22 season.
In other news, Manchester United are allegedly at an impasse with Alexis Sanchez over the Chilean star’s future at Old Trafford once his loan deal with Inter Milan ends.
The 31-year-old is due to return to the club in the next few weeks but is eager to head back to I Nerazzurri, either on another loan deal or on a permanent basis.
According to the Daily Star, however, the Red Devils are not ready to sanction his sale as they feel that Alexis – who has two years to run on his £500,000-a-week deal – can still do a job for them.
