Marcos Rojo To Dump United This Summer
Manchester United star defender Marcos Rojo, who joined the Red Devils in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon is set to move out of Old Trafford as report claimed that Fenerbahce are presently in talks with the Red Devils hierarchy.
The Argentine international has fallen down the defender’s pecking order as he is behind Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof.
He could be leaving the Old Trafford Stadium on loan this summer as Turkish media Fanatik suggested that the Super Lig giants are in advance talks with the Red Devils for his signature.
Getting game-time might be difficult to achieve for the 28-year-old defender this season as he seems not rated by José Mourinho, who only involve him in 12 matches in all competitions throughout last season.
Rojo was initially targeted by Everton manager Marco Silva but the manager failed to complete his move for the 28-year-old Argentine.
In other United transfer speculations, José Mourinho could re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic in January, that’s according to Sky Sport
The Swedish star left Old Trafford last season as he wasn’t offered a new contract by the club’s board members.
However, according to the Daily Star, the player could be returning to the Theater of Dreams in January so as to end his successful playing career.
La Liga Expert Reveals Defender Hunt For Arsenal
Spanish La Liga expert Guillem Balague has revealed that Premier League giants Arsenal want to sign a defender in the current January transfer window.
Experienced journalist Guillem Balague made the revelation on his transfer show via the Daily Star as he said that the Gunners’ hunt for a defender has held up the much publicised transfer for Barcelona star Denis Suarez.
It was further revealed that the defender hunt embarked upon by Arsenal is not necessarily for a centre back.
Guillem Balague said that the aforementioned Denis Suarez will only leave the Nou Camp for Arsenal.
Barcelona have already told the Gunners that they will only sanction a loan deal transfer for the remainder of the season if Arsenal will sign the Spaniard permanently.
Denis Suarez is keen to leave Barcelona in search of more playing time after failing to secure a spot in the Barcelona XI under manager Ernesto Valverde.
He has played in just one Spanish La Liga game in this campaign.
The one-cap Spanish international player wants to reunite with Unai Emery at Arsenal having already played under the former Almeria and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) during his time with former Europa League winners and La Liga club Sevilla.
Man United Reject Juventus Offer For Darmian
Three-time European champions Manchester United have rejected an offer from Italian Serie A champions Juventus for defender Matteo Darmian.
According to Italian transfer news portal Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus made a loan offer of €2m for Matteo Darmian with an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the loan contract for just €8m.
The Juventus proposal was swiftly rejected by the Red Devils who were holding out for a €4m loan fee in addition to the condition that the Italians must sign the 29-year-old at the end of his loan move.
Apart from Juventus, Italian international defender Matteo Darmian has also been strongly linked with Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Darmian has been on the fringes of the Manchester United team for the majority of his footballing career at Old Trafford.
The Italian fullback is a utility player that can effectively play as a left-back or a right.
He signed for Manchester United from Italian Serie A side Torino in the summer of 2015 while Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal (LVG) was still the manager.
Jose Mourinho replaced LVG in 2016 but Darmian still failed to break into the team.
The same trend has continued into the interim regime of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

Popular media outlet Metro claim that the Citizens have pulled out of the chase for highly rated Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Frenkie De Jong.
Manchester City were said to have opted out of the race for De Jong after French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) entered the race to sign the player.
De Jong, 21, has previously been touted as a possible midfield addition to the playing squad at Old Trafford.
The Manchester United midfield was in the spotlight earlier in the season when Jose Mourinho was the Red Devils manager.
Frenkie De Jong is one of the hottest properties on the European football scene after his series of impressive outings for his Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax Amsterdam.
He has been a key player for Ajax for the majority of the last two seasons.
De Jong played a big role in the Ajax team that reached the first knockout stage of the Champions League this season.
Ajax will face Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid for a spot in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Done Deal! Man United Star Signs New Contract
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has put pen to paper on a contract extension at Old Trafford thereby putting a loan transfer to Scottish Premiership side Celtic in serious doubt.
It was announced on Monday that the young midfielder has signed a new contract until the end of the 2022/23 season with the option of an extra year until 2024.
He had earlier been linked with a loan move to Scottish champions Celtic despite the fact that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the young midfielder will stay at Old Trafford for the rest of the season.
Scottish international McTominay has been linked with a loan transfer away from the club following his inability to feature for the Manchester United team consistently.
He has played just eight times for the Red Devils this term including two appearances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ex-Norwegian international striker Solskjaer was appointed the interim Manchester United manager for the rest of the season following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho.
Scott McTominay has found it hard to break into the first team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 22-year-old has played in two of the seven games under Solskjaer who has settled for the midfield trio of Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic.
Inter Milan Join Man United In Bid To Sign Steven Bergwijn
Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have joined Manchester United in the race to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn.
According to the report from Dutch publication De Telegraaf, the Nerazzurri want to sign the two-cap Dutch international.
Steven Bergwijn has been in superb form for Dutch Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven after netting nine goals and providing eight assists in 17 appearances this season.
The initial €20m (£17.6m) valuation of the player will definitely increase with the interest of both Manchester United and Inter Milan.
The aforementioned publication also revealed that PSV are reluctant to sell him and that a possible transfer out of the club will have to wait till the end of the season.
Manchester United have sent scouts to run the rule over Steven Bergwijn on many occasions including the 2-2 draw with Emmen FC on Sunday.
The Red Devils might have to wait till the summer for a potential deal with PSV for him though it remains to be seen whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will still be the Manchester United manager.
Solskjaer has a short-term contract until this summer with the likes of Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur) and Zinedine Zidane all linked with the vacant managerial position at Old Trafford.

He was part of the Newport County team that stunned Premier League club Leicester City in the FA Cup earlier this month.
Newport County are in the fourth round of the FA Cup after they defeated Leicester City 2-1 at home.
Antoine Semenyo would definitely be a signing for the future at Manchester United who have enough firepower in attack.
Romelu Lukaku is the second most expensive footballer in the history of Manchester United but the Belgian striker has not been able to secure a starting spot under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Chelsea head to Spain for Paredes alternative
With a move for Russia outfit Saint Petersburg star Leandro Paredes seeming difficult, the English Premier League outfit Chelsea are not ready to leave anything to chance as they now turn their attention to Spanish La Liga outfit Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka.

The manager Maurizio Sarri team are keen on a number of additions and they are desperate to land them as they hope to bring in Stanislav Lobotka who will be a good fit for the club and will serve as a perfect replacement for Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
However, a bid will be submitted for Stanislav Lobotka as soon as it is confirmed that Leandro Paredes will not be available in this winter transfer window.
Meanwhile, Stanislav Lobotka has been attracting a number of English Premier League sides with Bournemouth and Leicester City already being mentioned but the West London side are ready to do all it takes to land the star player who will make a good addition for the team.
Liverpool in shock bid for Liga NOS giants star player
English Premier League outfit Liverpool have made a submitted a surprise offer of about £70 million for the signature of Portuguese outfit SL Benfica youngster Joao Felix.
The Merseyside are keen on the signature of the star player and have been able to submit an offer in order to land him before this winter transfer window runs to an end.
Joao Felix is Benfica’s most prized asset as he has improved this season and has risen to become the biggest name in the Portuguese side which is the reason why he has attracted a number of interests from around Europe.
However, a reported according to Portuguese tabloid daily newspaper Correio de Manha claims that Benfica have already rejected the offer from the English League leaders as they are not willing to part ways with the player.
It is reported that the Reds only have the chances of convincing the Portuguese outfit if they are willing to pay the whopping sum of £120 million which is clearly spelt out in Joao Felix’s contract as a release clause.
Joao Felix is an attacking midfielder but has got the ability to play a number of roles which will surely be a good addition for the English League outfit.
Why United will lose out on £200-a-week South American star after Chelsea’s enquiry
English Premier League outfit Manchester United are known to be in the race for Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho who is speculated to be in the market and ready for a move.
The former Liverpool player is not having life as planned at the Nuo Camp as he has now been limited to bench roles and favoured after France international Ousmane Dembele.
He is, therefore, seeking to leave the club, according to reports and has got a lot of clubs calling for his signature.

Daily Express reports that the Blues are keen on Philippe Coutinho and are therefore monitoring his situation at the club so that they can snap him up as soon as he is available.
However, the Blues are reported to have prepared a bid of about £100 million which could be luring to the Catalans as they will have it to fund a move for other targets.
Why Chelsea might no longer cash in on £80,000-a-week defender
A bid by the English Premier League outfit Chelsea to cash in on wingback Davide Zappacosta might no longer work out as planned as an agreement was failed to reach with Italian Serie A outfit SS Lazio, reports from Italy claims.
Reports according to Calciomercato claim that the agent of the Italy international had held talks with the West London side, where some terms were tabled by Davide Zappacosta’s owners.
The report claims that the West London demand for a six-month loan deal and seek for a fee of £18 million to buy the player after the end of the spell which the Italian Serie A outfit are unwilling o meet as they will only prefer a simple loan deal.
It would be recalled that Davide Zappacosta joined the Stamford Bridge some 18 months back from another Italian Serie A outfit Torino where he was part of the Blues defensive strength but the situation has now changed for him as he is no more a popular face in the lineup.
So far in this season, Davide Zappacosta has seen just two appearances in teh Premier League and gas sat on the bench for the remaining times which is becoming unbearable to him.
