It has been reported by Goal.com that Manchester United Goalkeeper, Sergio Romero has confirmed that he will stay at club for the 2017-18 season and beyond, while also admitting he is disappointed to miss out on the World Cup.
The Argentine shot-stopper, 31, has been David De Gea’s back-up since joining the club from Sampdoria back in 2015. During that time, he has made 38 appearances for the club, with just seven of those coming in the Premier League.
Despite rumors of a possible exit, he has reiterated his commitment to remain with The Red Devils.
“I am staying with Manchester United for now. Jose Mourinho has worked very hard for my renewal until 2022 and I can’t leave him now,” Romero explained to TyC Sports on Saturday.
“If United have an offer that is useful for the club, they will sell me. But I don’t think that will happen,” Romero said.
Romero saw his hopes of a third World Cup with Argentina dashed after suffering a knee injury days after Jorge Sampaoli had named to the national squad. And while the goalkeeper believes he could have returned in time for the finals, he holds nothing against the coach for removing him from the squad.
“I spoke with Sampaoli, I explained to him the situation about my injury and my recovery time. I told him that didn’t break anything. I assured him that I would be available in 10 days,” he added.
“Sampaoli and the coaching staff had a different time frame, they wanted someone who could be there everyday and I was taken off the list in four hours. My career with the national team isn’t yet over, I am working on my return,” he said.
