It had been a cold and icy night across Manchester with temperatures hovering above freezing, with drivers needing to have been particularly careful on the roads. 

Romero, an Argentina international, is believed to have bought the car back in 2017 shortly after United defeated Southampton to win the League Cup at Wembley.

The 32-year-old has been a United player since 2015.

Romero’s current contract at Manchester United runs through until 2021 and has an option to be extended for another year. 

He is believed to earn around £70,000-a-week on that deal and is widely considered to be one of the best back-up goalkeepers in England. 

When he put pen-to-paper on his current contract in 2017, it was amid intense speculation over the future of first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea, but the Spaniard penned a new contract himself back in September.
