It has been revealed that Manchester United tried to offload one of their defenders on three occasions but failed to achieve their aim.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils have tried to sell Marcos Rojo three times.
Argentine international defender Rojo was one of the players signed under the managerial reign of Dutchman Louis Van Gaal (LVG).
Rojo joined Manchester United from Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon in 2014.
Manchester United first tried to offload him in 2015 and then in 2016 following the £30m signing of Ivorian international Eric Bailly from Spanish La Liga outfit Villarreal in the summer of that year.
The Red Devils tried to get Marcos Rojo off their payroll last year with fellow Premier League side Everton interested in him but his weekly wages proved to be a major stumbling block to a possible move.
Marcos Rojo is one of several Manchester United players with just few months left on their respective contracts and it’s almost certain that the Argentine won’t be offered a new deal that will see him stay at the club beyond this summer.
Club captain Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Andreas Pereira, Juan Manuel Mata, and Ander Herrera also have less than six months left on their contracts at Old Trafford.
