David de Gea says fellow goalkeeper Sergio Romero deserves ‘to be treated well’ at his next club after leaving Manchester United.
It was announced on Friday that Romero, who joined United in 2015, will be released when his contract expires at the end of this month.
Romero made 61 appearances for United, but did not play at all during his last season with the club.

De Gea wrote on Instagram: ‘Good luck, Chiqui! I wish you luck, my friend. You deserve to be treated well in your new challenge. To enjoy.’
Romero was left frustrated after United refused to let him secure a transfer last year.
United refused to sell the shotstopper for less than £10 million, which meant no move to Everton.

It was reported by ESPN last October that a number of United players had expressed frustration at the way Romero had been treated.
Romero was part of United’s team that won the Europa League in 2017, but he only made seven Premier League appearances during his time at the club.
Uncertainty remains over De Gea’s future at Old Trafford, with Dean Henderson looking to fully establish himself as United’s first-choice goalkeeper.
