Manchester United have an overcrowded central defense with players like Rojo, Maguire, Jones, Lindelof and Bailly around.
Not to forget, they loaned Chris Smalling out to Roma in the summer transfer window.
Argentine international Marcos Rojo was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford as well but eventually, he stayed with the club.

Last month, Mirror Sport reported that United were ready to offload the £130,000-a-week star but lately, the player has himself revealed that the club decided to keep him. He told Ole:
“I had the possibility of Everton, but by decisions of the club or the technician could not be done. Now I have to fight it until December and if it does not work out, I will try to leave. The Qualifiers and the Copa America are coming and I want to be part of that”
The main issue with the La Albiceleste defender is that he has been highly injury prone. Last season, he missed 19 games due to injury and only started 5 times in all competitions.
Fortunately, so far, he has been fit this season but Solskjaer has not preferred him in his starting XI. In the first three games, Rojo was not even part of the squad and in the last league game vs Southampton, he was an unused substitute.
In the central defense, the Norwegian manager prefers Lindelof and Maguire and in the left back position, Young has mainly played in the absence of injured Shaw.
Rojo can effectively play in the left back role as well and for Argentina he mainly plays in that position. In my view, Solskjaer should look to utilize him in the fullback role with Shaw injured instead of using an inconsistent and not so young Ashley Young.
It’s time to rebuild and move on.
Rojo is no longer what he used to be, and United need to stop this hoarding habit.
