Kaku Romero and the New York Red Bulls have a long history of bad blood and it looks that it once again is headed for a new fever pitch. According to TyC Sports in Argentina, Romero’s contract is set to expire, and the New York Red Bulls have not picked up the player's option.
Romero signed with the Red Bulls in 2018 in a transfer saga that resulted in payment percentages to Huracán of Argentina and agents that managed the player in his career. Upon arrival, Kaku has been a solid contributor to the club playing 72 games and scoring 13 goals. Although Romero never truly has dominated in MLS, he has been a good team player.
Off the field, there have been issues between the player, his agent, and the club. Romero was the subject of a transfer to Club America in 2019, one that resulted in his agent posting Eagle emojis and requesting the player be transferred. When America and the Red Bulls did not agree on a fee, the transfer negotiations ended.
Kaku Romero to a Liga MX side
Now it seems that Kaku Romero is indeed looking to move again, once again an unnamed Liga MX side wants to sign the player, and it could be for free. Romero’s agent claims the Red Bulls have not exercised his option and he could leave in January.
According to sources, Romero is under contract for the 2020, which could result in yet another transfer saga for an already shaky relationship between the Red Bulls and Romero. The report from TyC Sports also stated that “relationship between the player and the club is not good at all." So, we could be in for another #KakuGate again.
