Manchester United release eight players but are in talks with Juan Mata over a new contract

Manchester United have released eight players including Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero at the end of the 2020/21 season.

The veteran shot-stopper was signed in 2015 when Louis van Gaal was in charge of the team.

Since then, he has been a robust back-up to David De Gea, making 61 appearances, keeping 39 clean sheets and conceding 27 goals.

Dean Henderson’s return from Sheffield United pushed him down the pecking order. 

He didn’t play at all last season and is now free to pursue new opportunities elsewhere.

Joel Pereira is the other first-team squad member who has been released.

The club has also revealed that Juan Mata and Lee Grant are in discussions over new contracts at United. 

The Red Devils have also offered a contract extension to 22-year-old goalkeeper Paul Woolston.

The six other players who have been released are Jacob Carney, Mark Helm, Iestyn Hughes, Arnau Puigmal, Max Taylor and Aliou Traore.
