Report: Three clubs want to sign Man Utd defender before transfer window shuts

According to a report in the Guardian, Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo could leave before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.

The Argentine is yet to feature in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s match day squads this season, and no longer looks a part of the Norwegian’s plans.

Rojo is now the sixth choice centre-back at Old Trafford following the arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester City and the return of Axel Tuanzebe from his loan spell at Aston Villa.

And the Guardian’s report claims that AC Milan, Marseille and Monaco are all thought to be interested in the 29-year-old.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Rojo was said to be fuming on deadline day for Premier League clubs on August 8th after he could not complete a proposed switch to Everton.

Marco Silva was reportedly keen on signing the defender, but the deal broke down when the Reds changed the parameters from a loan to a permanent switch, which put off the Merseyside club.

Rojo still looks likely to leave the club this summer, but Luke Shaw’s injury may put a potential exit in doubt.

Shaw was brought off in United’s home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday, and Rojo could be an option used as cover at left-back along with club captain Ashely Young.

As per the Times, the 24-year-old is expected to be out for over a month, and will miss upcoming games against Southampton, West Ham and Leicester.
