Sergio Romero's wife could scupper Man Utd transfer exit just five months after slamming club for refusing to sell him

SERGIO ROMERO'S wife Eliana Guercio does not want to leave Europe, according to reports.

The Manchester United outcast has been heavily linked with a move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors but his wife – who slammed the Red Devils just five months ago – may put a stop to the switch.

Romero, 34, is out of contract at the end of this season.

But the long-term deputy to David De Gea was replaced by Dean Henderson as the club’s No2 at the end of the last campaign and wanted to leave for first-team football.

However – despite reported interest from Everton and several other clubs – a move did not come to fruition and the Argentine ended up staying put.

During the transfer saga, Guercio, 43, blasted United for showing a lack of respect to the loyal stopper.

She posted on Instagram: "Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him.

"He helped the team reach four finals/semi-finals and then he was on the bench, only to lose them all. It is time for them to return the opportunity and let him go.

"RESPECT FOR ONCE!!!! [sic]."

Romero is currently back in Argentina spending more time with his family.


He reportedly said goodbye to his team-mates ahead of a move to La Bombonera with Boca.

And his United departure seemed all but confirmed when he put his luxurious £3.5million mansion up for sale.

But Argentine journalist Cesar Luis Merlo claims Guercio could block the move because she wants to stay in Europe.
