And that’s because Romero, barring a sudden development, is poised to leave the club as a free agent at the end of the campaign.
He’s not made a single appearance for the club this term, instead training with the likes of De Gea and Dean Henderson.
And it’s likely he’ll return to Argentina, though Everton have also been linked.
Even if Romero was under contract at United through next season, Emiliano Martinez has been a massive success for Villa since joining from Arsenal last summer.
Regarding Grealish, United do still retain interest – but know signing the player won’t come cheap.
