Report – Man Utd ready to reach agreement to secure £25million star’s exit

Rojo De Gea

Manchester United made Harry Maguire the most expensive defender in the history of the game by signing him from Leicester City for a fee of £80million (The Mail).

Manchester United already had players like Rojo, Jones, Smalling, Lindelof and Bailly in their central defense and with the arrival of Maguire, the department is surely way too over-crowded.

Therefore, Solskjaer should look to sell a center back or two before the closure of the transfer window.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Marcos Rojo wants to leave the Old Trafford club. According to The Times, the Argentine international, who is valued at £25million, is pushing to secure Man Utd exit.

Duncan Castles (The Times) has mentioned that the 29-year-old defender is pressuring United to let him sign for Turkish side Fenerbahce on loan.

On the other hand, Mirror Sport claimed that Man Utd are ready to strike an agreement with the former Sporting CP defender (contract worth £130,000-a-week until 2021) to let him leave. The Red Devils are hoping for a permanent transfer.

After top performances at the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil, Rojo joined Man United when Louis van Gaal was in charge at Old Trafford.

Unfortunately, he has been highly injury prone. Take a look at his injury history at Transfermarkt, the La Albiceleste star has not played a single full campaign for United without getting injured.

In the last campaign, he missed 19 games due to injury and only started 5 times in all competitions.

The arrival of Maguire has further pushed Rojo down the pecking order, therefore, he is no longer important and should be offloaded.

  1. I don’t think Rojo should go because we need a natural left footed player in Shaw’s position due to possible injury crisis. The board should look in wards.
