Manchester United Football Club are undergoing a major transformation at the moment, with Jose Mourinho moulding the squad in his image. One man who was looking likely to be out of the exit door was Marcos Rojo, but that doesn’t seem to be happening this month.
That’s according to the Daily Record, who say the Argentinian defender has rejected a big-money move to China in order to fight for his place at Old Trafford.
Shanghai SIPG, who are managed by Sven-Goran Eriksson, looked to add Rojo to their playing squad as they want to take Asia by storm. No doubt there was huge money on the table to try and lure Rojo into the move.
He has clearly outlined his plans to stay at the Theatre of Dreams though, and although it won’t be easy for him, you do suspect he’ll get his fair share of playing time due to how injury prone our defence seems to be at times.
The 26-year-old from La Plata has a huge twelve months ahead. You feel this coming season is make or break for him, and he has to do something to convince the coaches and fans that he deserves a spot in the squad long-term.
