Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero was left frustrated on transfer deadline day when he wasn’t allowed to leave for Everton. The Argentine is down the pecking order at Old Trafford with David De Gea and Dean Henderson fighting to be the first-choice shot stopper.
United rejected a loan offer from Everton which covered all of Romero’s wages and included a £2m fee.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper has one year left on his £100,000 per week contract and can now be expected to leave the club.
Romero has also been left out of United’s Champions League squad with Lee Grant the third-choice.
The Athletic say the relationship between Romero and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tense for some time.

That was after the United manager picked De Gea for the FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals last season.
Romero is also said to be annoyed at the lack of communication from the club over Henderson returning after a loan spell at Sheffield United.
His wife couldn’t hide her frustration when she took to Instagram on deadline day.
She posted: “Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted with him.
“He helped the team reach 4 finals/semi-finals and then he was left on the bench only to lose them all.

Romero felt the offer Everton made was a fair one and he was relishing the chance to challenge Jordan Pickford at Goodison Park.
Instead, Everton ended up signing Robin Olsen on loan from Roma.
The door isn’t shut for Romero to leave Old Trafford with the MLS transfer window open until October 29.
Meanwhile, new recruit Edinson Cavani has opened up on what he can bring to the squad.

“I’m here to offer a little bit of my experience to the squad, to the manager, and I’m ready and willing to do the very best I can, and to give the best that I can give,” he told the club’s website.
“So that’s kind of my aim as I arrive here, very keen to make myself available to my team-mates.”
Cavani also revealed he got the lowdown on United from his former PSG team-mates Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria.
“I spoke with Ander a lot, as well as other team-mates, like Angel Di Maria, who I was also with at Paris,” Cavani added.
“It was genuinely getting to the last minute and I called Ander to have a chat.
“I have a lot of admiration for Ander, for the kind of person he is, and I had the feeling that his words were going to help me out, by telling me a bit about what it was like at United.
“So yes, it’s true that after I’d finished talking with Ander, we came to an agreement here with the club.
“I hadn’t known Ander for too long, but we formed and enjoyed a close friendship during that time at PSG, and, today, we are still very good mates.”
