According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, Red Devils defender Marcos Rojo has been put on standby ahead of a possible January move away from Old Trafford – with some Manchester United fans wondering why he is the one potentially exiting and not other candidates.
Who would you rather leave Old Trafford?
The Argentine recently came back from a muscle injury and briefly returned to training before heading back to his home country to spend time with family over Christmas – with other defenders Phil Jones and Ashley Young seemingly getting the nod over him.
Rojo, who was signed just after the 2014 World Cup from Sporting Lisbon in a £16 million deal, has found himself out of favour during manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign – making just eight Premier League appearances overall since the start of the 2018/2019 season.
As a result, it’s no surprise Rojo could be gearing up for a move away, but these United supporters definitely aren’t pleased – here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
Yet Phil Jones was given a 5 year contract although he’s a worse player. English agenda shining through again.

Jones, Young, Shaw and Bailly all deserve to go before Rojo.

Get rid of Jones instead, Rojo can actually be trusted when playing

Rojo can play lcb and lb.. It would be more effective to get rid of jones/young.. But I guess brexit fc fans wouldn’t be happy with that 😂
