Romero: Star for Argentina, not Samp

Sergio Romero may be starring for Argentina in the World Cup, but Sampdoria and Monaco want rid of him.

The goalkeeper is owned by Samp, but spent the last few months on loan at Monaco and is not part of Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic’s plans.

“For me this year in Monaco was very different, because from the start of my career I’ve rarely been on the bench as a reserve,” he told Spanish agency Efe.

“I didn’t have much of that experience in Holland or in Italy.”

According to Sportitalia, Sampdoria are eager to be rid of Romero because of his €1.5m wages, plus add-ons.

It is possible the Blucerchiati will agree to terminate his contract rather than broker a sale.
