English Premier League giants Manchester United have slashed the asking price for keeper Sergio Romero.
Romero was set for a summer departure from the club but a deal didn’t materialize with his suitors unwilling to pay United’s asking price but the Mirror now reports that the player might leave in January.
The report indicates that the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side is prepared to sell Romero in January for half of what they were demanding in the summer with the keeper seeking more opportunities following the return of Dean Henderson in the summer.
United wanted £5m for Romero but no club was prepared to meet that valuation with the player attracting interest from both Aston Villa and Everton last summer.
The reduction of price means clubs can now get the 33-year-old Argentine at £2.5m with the player set to move to America’s Major League Soccer.
The player had been omitted from United’s Premier League and Champions League squads.
