Manchester United’s outgoing transfer business has been rather quiet this summer, with Jose Mourinho clearly thinking Louis van Gaal’s squad was much too thin to compete on all fronts. We were expecting at least one big-name player to be sold, but that hasn’t been the case.
Now the new United boss has issued a hands-off warning for clubs interested in signing Argentine defender Marcos Rojo. That’s according to Yahoo, who say that Rojo still has a part to play for Jose Mourinho this season.
Last season wasn’t great for the 26-year-old from La Plata, despite getting plenty of game-time due to the horrific injury that Luke Shaw suffered.
Now the Englishman is back, and you do wonder just how often Marcos Rojo will get to play in the Premier League. He’ll definitely have to make an impact in the Europa League and newly-named EFL cup – but he will still be involved when needed.
The man who cost £12million from Sporting Lisbon certainly has it in his locker to earn a spot in the line-up on a regular basis, but he’ll have to work hard.
