CHELSEA are plotting a surprise move for Manchester United outcast Sergio Romero, according to reports.
Frank Lampard wants a new No1 having lost faith in Kepa Arrizabalaga.
And with Romero, 33, looking for a way out at Old Trafford, it 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 talented England stopper and David De Gea in the United pecking order.
According to ESPN, his potential availability is likely to spark a transfer scramble, with Leeds and Everton also ready to make their move.
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.
Chelsea also have Willy Caballero on their books but the Argentine stopper, who turns 39 next month, has just a year left on his contract.
The Blues have also been linked with high profile moves for Barca stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Ajax’s Andre Onana.
Watford’s Ben Foster has also been mentioned as a short-term solution to their keeper problem.
