MANCHESTER UNITED will reportedly offer Sergio Romero as part of a swap deal for Jack Grealish.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the Aston Villa star and may use their sub-goalie to try and sweeten the deal.
But the news will come as a blow to Chelsea who reportedly made Romero a top transfer target with Kepa Arrizabalaga set to leave.
Leeds and Everton are also said to be eyeing 33-year-old Romero.
But United want to use him as leverage in the Grealish deal, according to the Mail.
Argentine Romero is looking for a way out at Old Trafford and Villa could prove the perfect match.
SunSport exclusively revealed how Romero wants to hold showdown talks with United chiefs after Dean Henderson returned from his loan spell at Sheffield United.
Romero is now likely to be behind the English stopper and David De Gea in the United pecking order.
Despite being a key figure in United’s Europa League campaign, he was dropped for De Gea in the 2-1 semi-final defeat to Sevilla.
It is understood the club will demand around £5million for his services after snapping him up on a free from Sampdoria in July 2015.
Meanwhile Grealish will hold crunch talks over his future with Villa chief executive Christian Purslow on his return from holiday.
The star, 24, will return for pre-season training later this month after helping the club survive in the Premier League on the final day.
He was pictured keeping fit while on holiday in Greece.
An £80m price tag has been placed on his head and he still has three years left of his £65,000-a-week contract at his boyhood team.
However, he would find it hard to resist a switch to United and turn down the chance to play in the Champions League.
