Manchester United working on January sales for two surplus squad players

Manchester United are working on January exits for Argentines Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero. 

Rojo and Romero are two of several surplus squad players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should jettison from the club as he continues to shape his rebuild.

The Athletic report that Rojo is attracting interest from Newcastle United with Steve Bruce keen on the erratic defender’s versatility.

Rojo, 30, hasn’t featured for United’s first-team for over a year and his loan spell with Estudiantes last season was ruined by injury and the coronavirus pandemic.

The Athletic add that Rojo would prefer to remain in England and is more likely to leave on loan than seal a permanent exit this winter.

Meanwhile, Sergio Romero has been left frustrated after failing to seal a summer exit and has fallen third in the goalkeeping pecking order behind the returning Dean Henderson.

It is noted in the same report that the 33-year-old ‘keeper is finally poised to be granted his exit wish and talks with an unnamed Spanish side are underway.

Romero has six months left on his current contract and it is claimed that a loan would cover the rest of his contract before he is free to leave permanently next summer.
