Ex-Man Utd star Sergio Romero set to join Italian minnows Venezia on free transfer after promotion to Serie A

FORMER Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is set to finally join a new club, with a move to Venezia in its 'final stages'.

The Argentine hasn't played since the 2019-20 season, having been frozen out by the Red Devils last year.

Romero, 34, had played the role of reliable deputy to David de Gea since 2015 – but dropped down the pecking order after Dean Henderson's return from Sheffield United.

Having not been included in Man United's 23-man squad, Romero wasn't even in contention to play.

But the Red Devils didn't accommodate a move despite interest from Everton – leaving the experienced keeper miffed.

Since finally being released in June, Romero has been linked with Roma, Granada and even Chelsea.

But according to Fabrizio Romano, he has settled on a move to Italy.

The transfer expert claims that Romero will join newly-promoted Venezia.


He claims that negotiations are in their 'final stages' – and that they have beaten off interest from Spezia.

Romero could replace current Venezia No1 and former Brighton, Bristol City and Stoke stopper Niki Maenpaa between the sticks.

In total he made 61 appearances in total for Man United, including in the victorious 2017 Europa League final.

Romero has won 96 caps for his country, but missed out on Lionel Messi and Co winning the Copa America having not been called up since 2018.
