Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero could end his year-long stay at Old Trafford with a return to Argentina with River Plate this summer.

The club's president, Matias Patanian, confirmed they are on the lookout for a new shot-stopper and sees Romero as the perfect acquisition.

He said, according to The Sun: "Romero is a very good goalkeeper, that’s nothing new. River is always interested in good players and Romero is one of them."

River Plate have not yet been in contact with the Red Devils 'keeper - nor his representatives - regarding a move, but could do so in the coming days.

"It’s true what he said about we haven’t got in touch with him," Patanian continued, "but that is because we are waiting for our coach to tell us if he wants us to make an offer to Romero.

"In football you never know, what today is no, tomorrow is yes. I think that it can be interesting for him coming to River."

Romero completed a move to England's top-flight on a free transfer last summer from Italian outfit Sampdoria amidst uncertainty surrounding David de Gea's future.

And with Victor Valdes falling out of favour with manager Louis van Gaal, the Argentina international was selected to deputise in De Gea's absence for the first few months of the campaign. He has featured ten times this season.

Despite a bright start to life in Manchester, registering three consecturive clean sheets in in his first three league appearances, Romero was soon replaced by De Gea and has since found himself wasting away on the bench.

The 29-year-old's contract at Old Trafford expires in 2018 after signing a three-year deal last summer.
