Manchester United to use drastic measures to sell Marcos Rojo

Manchester United are reportedly keen on attempting a new way to sell Marcos Rojo in order to lower the club’s wage bill.

The experienced Argentine has struggled to make an impact of late and has clearly fallen far down the pecking order.

United have seven centre-backs at the club following Harry Maguire’s arrival with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer quickly addressing his side’s weaknesses.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe are the club’s remaining options in an overstocked position.

The former Sporting Lisbon star is unlikely to have a future at Old Trafford given the aforementioned players’ greater ability.

According to the Mirror, the Red Devils are ready to pay Rojo in order to help get him out of the club after failing to find a club willing to meet their £20m asking price with the player keen on a move to Italy or Spain.

The injury-prone defender has two years left to his deal and so it makes complete sense to move him out as soon as possible.

It’s believed a late move to Everton fell through on transfer deadline day with some reports claiming he was incredibly upset the transfer didn’t happen.

It’s said United weren’t happy with the Toffees’ bid and so rejected it despite it being in their best interests to offload him.
