Premier League giants Manchester United have concluded plans to let defender Marcos Rojo leave the club this summer.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Mirror which claimed that Marcos Rojo is surplus to requirements at Manchester United following the arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer.
England international centre back Harry Maguire became the most expensive defender in history on the back of his move from Leicester City to Manchester United.
Manchester United paid a fee of £85m to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City.
The aforementioned publication revealed that Manchester United are ready to pay a part of his £130,000 weekly salary for him to move away from the club before the end of this summer’s transfer window.
Manchester United will have to pay around £13.5m for Marcos Rojo to leave the club before the European transfer window ends on September 2.
Argentine international Rojo has a lot of interest from clubs from Spain and Italy but they are not willing to pay the £130,000 weekly he earns as a Manchester United player.
Marcos Rojo came close to joining fellow Premier League outfit Everton before the English top flight’s transfer window ended on the 8th of August.
