According to the Manchester Evening News, from Manchester Evening News, second choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero hopes to be staying at United for ‘a long time’.

30-year-old Romero has made a total of 16 starts this season, with the majority of his games being played in the Europa League as he has played 11 out of 14 leading up to the final, which he is also reportedly playing in.

The goalkeeper has only made 26 starts in his Manchester United career overall, after joining the Manchester club in 2015 on a free transfer from Sampdoria.

After the Europa League game against Celta Vigo on Thursday, the Argentine goalkeeper put an end to reports linking him with a move back to Italy to play for Inter Milan.

As he spoke to Sky Sports Italia after Thursday’s game discussing a possible return to Serie A.

“I doubt I’ll be in Italy next year,”

He also added:

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

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United - Match Report .
Sergio Romero put in a man-of-the-match performance which included a penalty save, as Manchester United held Southampton to a 0-0 draw at St Mary’s. Southampton went into the game having not scored at St Mary’s for around five hours, yet they took the game to Manchester United, who fielded a rather strong side considering their Europa League final on Wednesday against Ajax in Stockholm. Southampton were awarded a penalty after five minutes, as a cross-field ball from Cedric looked fairly easy to deal with for Eric Bailly, however Mike Dean judged Bailly to have controlled the ball with his hand, despite replays showing the incident occurred slightly outside the box. Although Southampton had missed their previous three penalties, fans were confident that Manolo Gabbiadini could convert, however Romero guessed right, went low and saved Gabbiadini’s effort, which set the tone for a frustrating game for Saints. Bailly nearly redeemed himself, as he went on an adventurous run from his right back position, right into the box and forced Fraser Forster into a reflex save, although the shot was fairly into him. Chances were falling to various players on both sides, notably Anthony Martial’s shot went wide of Forster’s goal and James Ward-Prowse’s free kick went wide of Romero’s goal.
