Manchester United fans getting hung up on the exit of a player like Marcos Rojo is a damning indictment on the way the club has taken a turn for the worst in the last few years. According to The Mirror, the Argentine liability is being allowed to leave for just £6 million this summer after five years at Old Trafford, but the fans aren’t happy.
#mufc will take £6m to sell Marcos Rojo this summer. Clubs in Spain and Italy are believed to be willing to take a gamble on him. The club have lowered their asking price to get rid of him #mulive [mirror]

Marcos Rojo conned his way into Manchester United. He was one of the typical World Cup performers in the 2014 tournament who did enough in his short seven games as Argentina reached the final to convince the world he was worth a big move. Now, five years on, we know exactly what sort of player Rojo is, and it’s hard to imagine there’s a club out there who would pay more than £6 million for him.
The Old Trafford faithful, though, simply cannot wrap their heads around the fact that Rojo is useless. What’s the point of having a liability of a defender in reserve when his rashness has so often cost the Red Devils. If Rojo had received even half the red cards he’s deserved for leg-breaking challenges then the fans may have different views, but in any case, getting rid of him and bringing in £6 million should be seen as a brilliant move, not a bad one.

Getting rid of Rojo before Jones is why our club has been no where near a PL for 6 years

Rojo is a warrior when he's not injured. Im sad he's getting sold before smalling and jokes

The United fans who are calling Rojo’s price tag a ‘disrespect’ need to wake up. The Argentine is useless and shipping him off for any price is good business.
