Newcastle United have been linked with a number of goalkeepers so far this transfer window, with the likes of England number one Joe Hart and former Real Madrid shot-stopper Iker Casillas.
With Joe Hart on loan at West Ham and having appeared in the FA Cup match against Shrewsbury Town over the weekend, it is highly unlikely that he will be leaving the capital anytime soon, and Casillas is heavily linked with a move to Getafe so a deal for him looks unlikely also.
Rob Elliot, Karl Darlow and Freddie Woodman are the goalkeepers on the books of Newcastle but its obvious with the names being linked to the club that manager Rafa Benitez wants to add some more experience in that department.
With that in mind, Newcastle should turn their attention to Manchester United’s Sergio Romero.
Sergio Romero – The Argentinian is currently playing second fiddle to David De Gea, and only getting game time in the cup competitions. With the World Cup, this summer though Romero may seek a move away from Manchester to enhance his chances of been between the posts when Argentina kick their campaign off.
Romero has plenty of high profile club experience playing for the likes of AZ Alkmaar, Sampdoria and Monaco before making the switch to Old Trafford, and its fair to say when called upon he has been very reliable, and could be the experience that Rafa Benitez and Newcastle are looking for to ensure they beat the drop this season.
