Man Utd defender set for surprise switch as Toby Alderweireld transfer edges closer

Wolves are interested in Marcos Rojo, as the newly-promoted Premier League side bid to push on with their summer spending.

The Manchester United centre-back has played less than Jose Mourinho would have liked over the past two years which has, more often than not, been down to injuries.

Wolves’ reported interest comes from a story by Miguel Delaney for the Independent. It also states that the club does need to sell to facilitate moves elsewhere.

While many of us may joke about Mourinho’s angered tone on tour, who could blame the manager given the lack of purchases this summer? Or, can it be argued that he has already spent enough since being appointed the manager in 2016?

Rojo would be a good signing for Wolves after already capturing Monaco sensation Joao Moutinho to bolster their midfield. It’s a huge sign of intent as nobody will be backing them to go down.

Delaney also states that Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld remains a top option, so Mourinho is thereby likely to be open to the sale of Rojo.

What a statement that would be from Wolves.

Let us know in the comments below if you’d allow Rojo join another Premier League club?
