Sergio Romero’s wife has criticised Manchester United for denying him a move away from the club.
Romero, who has fallen to third place in the United goalkeeping hierarchy, has been linked with a switch to Everton, but, with time running out before the deadline, he has yet to be given permission to leave Old Trafford.
The Argentina international’s wife Eliana Guercio hit out at United and stressed that Romero deserves to be treated with respect for the contribution he has made to the club.

Guercio wrote on Instagram: ‘Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him.
‘He helped the team reach 4 finals/semi finals and then he was left on the bench only to lose them all. It is time for them to return the opportunity and let him go. RESPECT FOR ONCE!!!!’.
Romero joined United in 2015 and has made 61 appearances for the club.

Romero is now United’s third-choice goalkeeper behind David de Gea and Dean Henderson
For much of his time at Old Trafford Romero has been the main backup to David de Gea.
However, after Dean Henderson returned from his loan spell at Sheffield United, Romero has fallen further down the pecking order at United.
33-year-old Romero is into the final year of his contract at United and is eager to leave the club.
Everton are looking to bring in a goalkeeper to compete with error-prone first-choice Jordan Pickford.
