Man United news: David de Gea appeared to throw shade at club after Sergio Romero's release

Sergio Romero and David de Gea at Manchester United

Sergio Romero has left Manchester United after six years with the club.

The Argentine joined United back in 2015 as David de Gea’s backup.

He was always a dependable stopper between the sticks. In fact, he was probably the best number two goalkeeper in the league for his first few years.

However, for whatever reason, Romero was dropped by United for cup games last season.

Romero attempted to leave last summer and a deadline day move to Everton appeared to be close.

His wife, Eliana Guercio, slammed the club in an Instagram post to try and convince them to let Romero leave. But that did work as United refused to let him leave.

He was then not included in United’s Premier League squad as he was demoted to fourth choice goalkeeper.

The 34-year-old did not make a single appearance in the 2020/21 season before his departure was confirmed on Saturday.

One player who appears to have not taken too kindly to United’s treatment of Romero is De Gea.

The Spanish goalkeeper took to social media to wish Romero well in the future.

In the process, he appeared to hit out at the club.

“Good luck, Chiqui! I wish you success, my friend. You deserve to be treated well in your new challenge. Enjoy”, he wrote.
