Over the past couple of weeks, Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has been continually linked with a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce on a season-long loan.
The 29-year-old is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, but Fenerbahce have ruled themselves out of signing him.
That’s according to the Daily Star, who claim a club source said: “Rojo is not currently a target, in fact, we have not held talks with United or his representatives over a summer move.”
Their report claims Rojo earns a ridiculous £160,000 per-week at United, meaning he would be way out of the Süper Lig’s side’s budget.
It remains unclear whether the Argentine will get his move before the European window shuts on September 2.
The Daily Mail reported that Rojo was fuming a deadline day switch to Everton fell through, with United changing the parameters of the deal from a loan to a permanent move.
It’s understandable why the Reds want to sell the centre-back on a permanent basis; he is now probably sixth on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s list of central defenders at the club, and no longer has a future at Old Trafford.
It looks like a move could hinge on whether United can find a club interested in Rojo who are willing to pay the staggering wages he is currently earning.
