What the papers say

The Daily Mirror says Sergio Romero‘s long-anticipated exit from Manchester United is being put on ice until club bosses make a decision about the future of Dean Henderson. The Argentina goalkeeper, 33, is looking for a shift after Henderson returned from Sheffield United and became the back-up to David De Gea. That move could be delayed until at least next summer, with the paper citing ESPN as reporting United may need Romero as cover if they allow Henderson to go out on loan as the 23-year-old seeks to secure an England spot.
