You are one step away from embarking on a new experience. The last few years did not offer him the best wink, however, he does not stop. After being released from Manchester United, Sergio Romero is one step away from agreeing to his arrival at Venezia, the team that has just been promoted to Serie A in Italy. The Argentine goalkeeper has been without an official match for more than a year and knows that this could be the turning point to regain his ground.

The journalist specialized in transfers Fabrizio Romano assured that the former goalkeeper of the Argentine team is in “final negotiations” to play for Venezia: “Manchester United exporter Sergio Romero will join Venezia in Serie A as a free agent. Spezia wanted it too, but Venezia is leading the race to complete the deal soon, ”Romano posted on his Twitter account.

The 34-year-old goalkeeper was in the sights of Spezia, who saw him as an alternative to Antonio Mirante. Romero has not played an official match since August 10, 2020, in the match against Copenhagen for the quarterfinals of the Europa League, when he was still saving for Manchester United. During the last season the Argentine goalkeeper had no action and coach Ole Gunna Solskjaer did not have him as a first option.

Venezia is 17th in Serie A. He won only one game (2-1 against Empoli) in seven disputed dates and in total he has five points with a goal difference of -7 (he converted five and received 12). In this landing Romero, in principle, would be a substitute for Finnish goalkeeper Niki Mäenpää.

It would be the Argentine’s second experience in Serie A, as he spent 3 seasons at Sampdoria (2011-2013 and 2014-2015). After that experience he passed through Monaco and from there he was transferred to Manchester United, where he stayed for 6 years.
