Manchester United: Marcos Rojo could join Fenerbahce on loan in January

Fotospor (via Sport Witness) claim that Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo could be heading to Fenerbahce in January, as the Turkish outfit look to strengthen their defensive options.

The Argentine, who is adept at playing both at centre-back and on the left-hand side of defence, is massively out of favour at Old Trafford, so would likely welcome a move away from the club to gain first-team minutes in January.

Rojo made his first and only appearance of the campaign last Thursday, playing 78 minutes for the Red Devils as they narrowly edged past Astana in the group stages of the Europa League.

The 29-year-old then remained an unused substitute during United’s 2-0 defeat against West Ham on Sunday, with Ashley Young preferred at left-back in place of the injured Luke Shaw.

Sport Witness report that Fenerbahce were interested in signing Rojo during the summer, though couldn’t agree a deal with the South American due to his wage demands.

Fenerbahce have started their campaign better than Rojo’s current employers, losing just one of their opening five matches. Ersun Yanal’s men currently lie second in the Super Lig standings, just three points behind current leaders Alanyaspor.

From Rojo’s point of view, a move to the Turkish top-flight, to a side gunning for the league title makes total sense. He is so far down the pecking order at United, and will only continue to see game-time limited should he remain at Old Trafford.

The former Sporting CP man now has three months to force his way into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans, but if he continues to fail at doing so, he should really think about a move away from the club, even if it’s just until the summer.
