Inter Miami missed out on Man Utd shot-stopper Sergio Romero

Inter Miami wanted to make an instant impact in their debut season in Major League Soccer and that is why they made important signings including Blaise Matuidi, Rodolfo Pizarro and Gonzalo Higuaín. The new franchise of the MLS also tried to make a last-minute signing when starting goalkeeper Luis Robles fractured his arm in October.

According to Chris Wheeler of The Daily Mail, Inter Miami nearly reached an agreement with Manchester United to sign goalkeeper Sergio Romero the night the transfer window ended.

The Argentine goalkeeper arrived at Old Trafford in 2015, but has been backup to David De Gea, who has been there since 2011. The 33-year-old has only made seven appearances in the Premier League in five seasons, playing a total of 630 minutes.

Failed to reach an agreement

Both teams failed to reach an agreement just ahead of Thursday night’s deadline and Inter Miami coach Diego Alonso had to put John McCarthy in goal due to the absent Robles. Inter Miami has one game left of the regular season and they can still make it to the playoffs if they defeat Cincinnati on 8 November.
