Louis van Gaal ready to part with another centre-back

Manchester United Football Club have had an extremely busy day in the transfer market, selling plenty of players whilst bringing in Anthony Martial and Keylor Navas – despite those deals not being finalised they look extremely close.

According to the usually reliable Mark Ogden, Manchester United are now ‘ready to dispense’ with Marcos Rojo after just a year at the club.

Rojo signed from Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth around £14million, a move in which he had to force through himself due to Lisbon’s unwillingness to sell the World Cup star. It would be a bit bizarre to see him go, but you always felt that Louis van Gaal doesn’t fancy those South American players.

Marcos Rojo was one of the better performers from last season. His passion on the pitch was absolutely superb and there for all to see, and he always worse his heart on his sleeve.

If we sell him and persist with Daley Blind at centre-back that is definitely a cause for concern, but hopefully this latest rumour is exactly that, and doesn’t turn out to be true.

  1. what is going on in old trafford?? £44m for Di Maria £75m from adidas deal £50m+ from CL and record TV revenue. They’ve spent £1-5m after Sales… absolutely outrageous! why have they still not bought a right winger and a prolific forward? now De Gea is gone as well. United can forget winning anything this season. They’ve about 20 good passers in the team and no pace or trickery. Another year without silverware and a tough year of dull football fighting for CL spot with Liverpool and Arsenal. Tactics we’re diabolical against Swansea and they’ve been labored since the opening fixture.

  2. i think LVG needs psycathric examination. i can imagine a manager having prob;em with virtually all his human resources. in my laanguage their is this saying that this wood isnt good u remove that one isnt good u remove which one will u use for the cooking becuase firewood must release smoke……he must be reminded that stars of a decade ago arent the same as todays…….the current crop crop of stars are cash spoit and must be treated with caution. man u need rojo now blind isnt just fit into the center back
