Man United struggling to find a buyer for £25million Marcos Rojo: report

I think us Manchester United fans were well within our rights to expect at least a few outgoing transfers during this transfer window. Suffice to say nothing has happened so far…

One name that I genuinely had forgotten was still at the club is Marcos Rojo. The Argentine centre-half spent practically the whole of last season out injured – although he’s back fit now, and with the rest of the squad out in Australia for pre-season tour.

However, it seems as though United are actively trying to offload Rojo. According to the usually reliable Duncan Castles in the Daily Record, the Reds are struggling to find a buyer for the 29-year-old, after placing a £25million valuation on his head…

Although there is interest in the player from the Chinese Super League, Rojo isn’t keen to leave Europe at any stage in his career. Ideally, he’d like to remain in the Premier League.

Rojo still has two years left on an £8million-per-year contract at the Theatre of Dreams, hence why United are trying to profit on the £16million that they paid to sign the centre-half from Sporting Lisbon. However, you get the feeling that they may have to lower their asking price should they want to get him off the books during this window.

For years, United have been absolutely terrible in the selling market. This is a squad that needs a major overhaul, and it’s sods-law that the Red Devils are suddenly trying to up their prices when the club should be having a quick-fire sale…

Honestly, United will do well to get anything over £10million for a man who has been injured for far too long, and I’m not sure any Premier League side with aspirations to take their club forward will even contemplate making a move for Rojo as he’s just not very good…
