Manchester United star keen on leaving Old Trafford this month

Rojo De Gea

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo could be the subject of a transfer approach from Galatasaray, who are said to made initial contact with United regarding his proposed sale.

The Argentine is presently regarded as the fifth-choice centre back behind Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones and he is supposedly hopeful of pursuing a fresh challenge before the end of the month.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, the Argentine is presently of interest to Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim, who is prepared to use his close relationship with Jose Mourinho to push through a deal.

Nonetheless, the final decision would be taken by Ed Woodward and the United hierarchy and reports have previously suggested that the club could demand as much as £30m for his permanent sale.

During the 2016/17 season, Rojo had become one of United’s most influential centre-backs alongside Phil Jones but he has since suffered numerous injuries which have dropped him down the pecking order.

As such, he now appears the more likelier of the central defenders to make way, though United may have to reconsider the means for his proposed exit. Galatasaray are understood to be planning an initial loan approach for the Argentine with the obligation to buy, provided United come down from their asking price.
