SERGIO ROMERO’S wife Eliana Guercio does not want to leave Europe, according to reports.
The Manchester United outcast has been heavily linked with a move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors but his wife – who slammed the Red Devils just five months ago – may put a stop to the switch.

Romero, 34, is out of contract at the end of this season.
But the long-term deputy to David De Gea was replaced by Dean Henderson as the club’s No2 at the end of the last campaign and wanted to leave for first-team football.
However – despite reported interest from Everton and several other clubs – a move did not come to fruition and the Argentine ended up staying put.
During the transfer saga, Guercio, 43, blasted United for showing a lack of respect to the loyal stopper.
She posted on Instagram: “Sergio Romero worked hard for his club. Last trophy they won, they lifted it with him.
“He helped the team reach four finals/semi-finals and then he was on the bench, only to lose them all. It is time for them to return the opportunity and let him go.
“RESPECT FOR ONCE!!!! [sic].”
He reportedly said goodbye to his team-mates ahead of a move to La Bombonera with Boca.
And his United departure seemed all but confirmed when he put his luxurious £3.5million mansion up for sale.
But Argentine journalist Cesar Luis Merlo claims Guercio could block the move because she wants to stay in Europe.
