Boca Juniors came calling for Sergio Romero but the goalkeeper said no, deciding to remain at Old Trafford.

The Argentina No 1 spoke with the head coach of the South American club Guillermo Barros yet he was not convinced that the best move was to return home.

Romero has been with AZ Alkmaar, Sampdoria, and Monaco before he moved to Manchester United. He had the chance to leave during the winter window but opted to remain at Manchester despite barely getting any action under Coach Jose Mourinho.

Since signing in 2015, Romero has played in four Premier League and five Europa League games. He is the second choice who is barely called into action. He became the next in line behind De Gea after he replaced Anders Lindegaard but he would continue in that capacity until the summer.

Manchester United staff are watching 20-year old Joel Pereira. The young shot-stopper is currently on loan at Belenenses but if the Swiss born Portuguese develops fast, it could spell bad news for Romero.

If the youngster is deemed fit for first team action as a back up to the Spanish No 1, Romero can be allowed to exit the club.

While there is no shortage of options for the goalkeeper if he leaves United, Romero would be looking at staying at a top team in Europe – obviously for the sake of competition and compensation – rather than returning to South America.

Another scenario is if Real Madrid come calling De Gea. The Spaniard might not be able to stay off the temptation for long. However, this would likely not happen this summer with Real just getting their transfer ban lifted. There are other positions that the La Liga side would fill first before the goalkeeper spot.
