Sergio Romero left Manchester United about 18 months ago, but he just made a hint about perhaps coming back.
Throughout his six-year tenure at Old Trafford, the Argentine goalkeeper was frequently second fiddle. Only seven Premier League games were played by him; the vast bulk of his outings were in cup games.
The 35-year-old left United in the summer of 2021 to join the Italian team Venezia, and after just one season there, he signed with Boca Juniors in August. The following year, he returned to his native Argentina to play for the club.

Romero is seen in a video signing autographs outside of Old Trafford and answering a fan’s question. The fan inquires, “Sergio, when are you returning [to Manchester United]?” Then Romero responds, “Hopefully quick!”
Romero was present for Thursday’s Europa League triumph over Sheriff Tiraspol and is still very well-liked as evidenced by the large number of fans vying for his autograph.
Given the uncertainty surrounding David de Gea’s contract and the fact that Dean Henderson is presently on loan at Nottingham Forest, it is unclear how United’s goalkeeping department will develop in the long run.
