Marcos Rojo

Manchester United could be on the verge of losing Argentina centre-back Marcos Rojo this summer due to intense pressure from Everton for his signature.

The Toffees new manager Marco Silva is hoping to re-unite with the former Sporting Lisbon player, whom he worked with during their time at the Portuguese League.

United brought Rojo to Old Trafford in a £16m deal from Lisbon following his breath-taking performances for Argentina during the 2014 world cup tournament held in Brazil.

His stay at Old Trafford have been a bittersweet period as he had to battle lot of injuries and lost of form which eventually led to losing his place in Mourinho’s starting lineup towards the end of last season.

His future at Old Trafford remains uncertain as he might fail to get much game-time in the coming season due to intense competition from mourinho’s trusted players.

However, Marco Silva is ready to lure the player to the Goodison Park this summer and he has reportedly tabled £30m to the Red Devils for his signature.

The former Lisbon and Watford manager is hoping to have a great season with the Merseyside club, therefore, he has been active since the start of the transfer period.

Should he finally sign the defender, he will reportedly switch his formation to 3-4-3 in which he would use the Argentine as one of the back-three defenders.

However, it remains unseen if Mourinho would want to partway with Rojo, considering the fact that his employers are not actively involved in the ongoing transfer market.
