Sergio Romero eyes ‘showdown talks’ as Man Utd prepare for Dean Henderson return

Sergio Romero is planning to hold talks at Manchester United to discover where his future lies with Dean Henderson poised to return to Old Trafford.

The Argentine has been David de Gea's deputy for the vast majority of his career in the north west.

But his role as United's No 2 is likely to be affected if Henderson, as is currently the case, returns to Manchester.

Henderson has impressed during his time out on loan at Sheffield United and there are calls for him to replace De Gea.

That would leave Romero as the club's third choice and The Sun reports that he will seek an exit if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tells him there is no future for him.

The former Sampdoria goalkeeper has a year remaining on his current deal with the option of a further 12 months.

Romero has not made a single Premier League outing this term despite De Gea's questionable form for much of the campaign.

His appearances have all come in the cup competitions but if Henderson is bought into the fold it will mean minutes are at even more of a premium.

United will demand around £6m for the shotstopper should he eye pastures new with both Villarreal and Real Sociedad expressing an interest earlier this year.

Romero has an excellent clean sheet record at the Red Devils but has still been unable to usurp De Gea.

Solskjaer has regularly backed his No 1 despite calls for him to be dropped and even referred to him as the world's finest goalkeeper.

But Henderson's return could back the Norwegian into a corner as they look to retain the services of the 23-year-old Englishman.

A lucrative deal is thought to have been tabled in an effort to keep the man who is seen as a potential England No 1 for next summer's European Championships.

If he is to earn Three Lions recognition he will need to be playing regularly which may further complicate things at Old Trafford.
