If reports are to be believed, Manchester United has informed Marcos Rojo that he is not for sale under any conditions as they intend to keep the 26 year old Argentine as a backup if their first choice defenders get injured. The flexible Manchester United defender has been on the brink of leaving the Premier League club after failing to adapt at the Theater of Dreams following his arrival in England in 2 years ago.
He joined the Manchester club for a fee of £16 million from Portuguese club, Sporting CP on a five year contract. Rojo started in an impressive way at United before his injuries and lack of form held him back at the club.
Sources of Yahoo Sports have reported that few clubs have made offers to Manchester United to land the Argentine stopper but the club has stood firm in rejecting their offers for the Argentine’s services. Spanish clubs Villarreal and Valencia are also interested in signing the Manchester United No.5 on a season-long loan.
Marcos Rojo has so far featured in only 35 Premier League games for the Red Devils in his first two seasons. He broke down with former manager Louis Van Gaal and the 26 year old is yet to make into the squad this season under Jose Mourinho after featuring as an unused substitute in the opening Premier League match-day against Bournemouth.
After the arrival of Eric Bailly this summer, Manchester United now have more depth in their defense which means that Argentine now has a more competitive battle into the lineup.
