Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero’s hopes of a move to the MLS are over – at least for now.
The Argentine was eyeing a move to David Beckham’s new franchise Inter Miami, but the MLS transfer window closed early on Friday morning with no bids made.
Now the 33-year old must remain at Old Trafford until January at the earliest, with little prospect of playing any football. He is currently fourth-choice at United behind David de Gea, Dean Henderson, and Lee Grant.
Romero was heavily linked with a move to Everton in the summer, but that deal collapsed when United demanded a £10 million fee for him. Everton signed Robin Olsen from Roma instead.
That prompted Romero’s wife Eliana Guercio to take to social media to lambast United for her treatment of her husband.
Romero has not played for United since their UEFA Cup quarter-final against FC Copenhagen in August.
