Manchester United second choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero has rubbished talk he will be playing in Italy next season.

The 30-year-old has been forced to be David de Gea’s backup at Old Trafford and his opportunities have only come in cup competitions.

Romero, Argentina’s first-choice goalkeeper, has helped United reach the Europa League final, but several reports suggested he wanted to leave in search for more game time.

Clubs in Serie A have been watching Romero, including Napoli and Inter Milan, but the Argentine has rubbished reports that he will be leaving United this summer.

“No, I doubt I’ll be in Italy next season,” Romero told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am very happy in Manchester, they make me feel important and I hope to stay for a long time.”

Romero joined United from Sampdoria in 2015. Louis van Gaal, who worked with the goalkeeper at AZ Alkmaar, identified him as the ideal backup to De Gea.

This season he’s improved between the sticks in a United shirt, whereas last season he couldn’t catch a cold and was a real concern whenever played.

Meanwhile, United fans are still in doubt over De Gea’s future. Should the Spaniard join Real Madrid it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Mourinho to monitor Jan Oblak’s situation at Atletico Madrid.

‘Anyone but Joe Hart’, I hear United fans cry.
