Sergio Romero found out about Man Utd exile on social media and 'demands showdown talks with club over treatment'January 30, 2022
SERGIO ROMERO will reportedly demand showdown talks with Manchester United bosses when he returns to Carrington next week.
The exiled goalkeeper has been dropped from the Red Devils' Champions League squad – a decision he is said to have discovered via social media.
According to the Star, Romero, 33, returned to Argentina during the transfer window to organise a move to a new team.
However, United failed to agree a deal with Everton, leaving the goalkeeper furious with the club.

Romero has not played since the Europa League quarter-final win over Copenhagen in August, and was dropped for the final-four clash with Sevilla.
United expect the goalkeeper back at Carrington next week after he returned from South America to enter self-isolation.
It is said the player will demand talks with club bosses over his future.
And the Red Devils face either paying Romero wages worth £1million to sit in the reserves for the rest of the season, or terminate his contract.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is highly unlikely to need the shot-stopper later in the campaign, with David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Lee Grant ahead of himin the pecking order.
The decision not to allow Romero to leave has also infuriated his wife, Eliana Guercio, who took aim at the Old Trafford club once the transfer window ended.
