Almost nine months after his last appearance for the club, Manchester United misfit Sergio Romero has taken to Instagram in an effort to showcase his qualities ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Argentina international hasn’t played a minute for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season, with David De Gea and Dean Henderson battling it out for the No. 1 jersey.

Romero is out of contract this summer, although United do retain the option to extend his deal by a year should they wish.

Having seen so little action on the field of late, the South American used social media to show he hasn’t grown complacent in his training, captioning the post: “Working hard for the next adventure!!!”

Those words suggest the former Sampdoria and Monaco stopper is indeed hoping to move on at the end of this season.

As well as showcasing a hefty deadlift, Romero’s post included a photo of him holding two gargantuan dumbbells overhead, sending the message that he’s fit to feature for potential suitors.

Romero was one of the few players left out of United’s 25-man Premier League squad near the start of this season, although he was later added to the list in early 2021.

The Red Devils face Villarreal in the Europa League final on Wednesday, though Solskjaer omitted Romero from his squad for the decider in Gdansk, Poland. De Gea, Henderson, Lee Grant and 21-year-old Nathan Bishop were instead named as the four travelling goalkeepers.

The Daily Mail recently reported Everton and Juventus are each in the running to sign Romero should he be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer.

It’s suggested the Toffees want stiffer competition for England stopper Jordan Pickford, while Juve are seeking superior cover for Wojciech Szczesny.

United, meanwhile, are understood to be on the verge of re-signing Tom Heaton when he leaves Aston Villa.

World Cup runner-up Romero has already won the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup since joining United in 2015, as well as earninig 96 caps for his country since 2009.

There’s a chance the Argentinian may yet remain with United—particularly if De Gea or Henderson leaves this summer—though Romero’s motivation to move seems clear.
