Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has turned down reports of moving out of the club, as he is content at Old Trafford.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Sergio Romero has said that he is ‘very happy’ at Manchester United. He has even stated that he feels like he is ‘important’ to the club, despite starting in only one Premier League game so far.

Jose Mourinho noticed something special in the former Sampdoria man as he devised a system wherein David De Gea played all Premier League games, and Romero manned the goal in European matches.

In fact, Romero was the goalkeeper last night as United managed to pull off a 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo to reach the Europa League Final on aggregate, where they will be up against Ajax.

The 30-year-old left Italian side Sampdoria for United in 2015 under a move administered by the then managero f United, Louis van Gaal. The Argentina international’s arrival happened as De Gea appeared set to leave for Real Madrid, but the move never materialised. Thus, Romero had to be satisfied with the number two spot.

Romero has truly been impressive this year under Jose Mourinho. The Celta Vigo equaliser last night was only the sixth time that he was beaten in the last 16 games, which is a remarkable stat for a team’s second choice goalkeeper.

Inter Milan have been rumoured to want Romero but looks like the Nerazzurri will have to wait or look elsewhere, after the goalkeeper shot down all reports of him seeking to move out of Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, United are already facing a challenge when it comes to retaining their first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea. The Spaniard has been pursued by Real Madrid for quite some time now.

Romero’s skill was on display against Celta Vigo as he made stops based on pure instinct, and not many goalkeepers can boast of getting their instincts right at almost all times. He remained alert from the beginning of the match, and was one of the few players who put up a consistent performance.

He has proven to be a player Mourinho can rely on. For a team like United who has been heavily dependent on David De Gea for a long time, it can be difficult to trust another player to do a good job. However, Romero has not let them down in any regard.

The final against Ajax in Stockholm will probably be one of the most crucial games United have played so far this season, and while David De Gea is the first-choice goalkeeper, it may so happen that Mourinho opts to stick with Sergio Romero in goal – a move that would surely delight the Argentine.
