Manchester United are expecting some wholesale changes this summer, to improve on what has been a tough season for the Red Devils, and whether it be Louis Van Gaal or someone else in charge, there’s plenty of work to be done.
Here in the Transfer Tavern, fans are aware that business do be done doesn’t just centre around new signings and they’re expecting there to be a wealth of departures to accompany any incoming business.
Today’s reports in The Daily Mirror also suggest that’s the case, as it’s stated Manchester United are preparing for the exit of full-back Marcos Rojo this summer.
Rojo hasn’t quite found consistency in Manchester since arriving 18 months ago, following Argentina’s progress to the World Cup final, and he hasn’t been able to nail down a starting spot amidst a wealth of competition.
With United having Luke Shaw and academy graduate duo Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Joe Riley to think about, as well as having Daley Blind capable of playing on the left, a potential departure of Rojo isn’t that concerning.
In fact, it seems United are ready to put the international defender on the market as it’s stated they’re prepared to listen to offers for the player’s services. Having cost £16m, it’s unlikely United will recoup the fee that they paid Sporting Lisbon for his signature.
United fans, is ousting Rojo a good call? Let us know in the comments below!
