Manchester United’s squad is in need of a huge overhaul. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been entrusted to do that, and he probably must sell before he buys.
Centre-half has been a real problem position for a few seasons now and it’s one that needs addressing immediately. It seems as though the Baby Faced Assassin is already getting to work in that regard as he looks to sell the out-of-favour Argentine Marcos Rojo.
That’s according to the usually reliable Duncan Castles, who told the Transfer Window podcast, transcribed by the Daily Express, that United are trying to move on from the ex-Sporting Lisbon man. Furthermore, the defender is open to a move away.
Apparently, Fenerbahce are interested in taking the 29-year-old, which tells you everything you need to know about the level he is at right now.
Rojo has played 192 minutes of Premier League football this campaign. He’s probably on relatively high wages and do we really need to keep him around for very little production?
Whatever the transfer fee, it’s worth freeing up that squad slot and either signing someone new or promoting a youth team player who can probably do just as good a job as Rojo has.
Injuries certainly haven’t helped his case, and while United will miss his aggression and passion, they won’t find it hard to replace his sheer ability.
