Not Mkhitaryan: Man United star desperately wants to leave the club in January



With no Premier League appearance under his belt thus far this season, Sergio Romero looks set to exit Old Trafford in search of pastures green ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

According to report from English source The Independent, it is reported that Romero is piling pressure on the Manchester United hierarchy in a bid to broker a move out of the club. The 2015 summer signing has found it hard to usurp David de Gea to the No. 1 spot, making him a regular figure on the club’s bench.

With just 20 appearances to his name since he joined the club, he now looks set to leave, however, his supposed destination remains yet unclear.

Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli has sounded it out to his players that regular club football remains a prerequisite to earning a call up to the national side for the mundial, and that has seen Romero, who still has a valid current until the summer of 2021, scrabbling around for game time.

It has earlier been reported that Jose Mourinho would block any move for the player so it is left to be seen what becomes of the player’s future at the club. Man United recently crashed out of the Carabao Cup after a shock defeat to Bristol City, hence the struggle for playing time just got tougher for the 30-year-old.

Romero currently has his spot in the Argentine setup threatened by Real Sociedad’s Geronimo Rulli and whilst he may not likely be dropped entirely from the national team, he could yet play second-fiddle to Rulli.
