Why Marcos Rojo Won’t Leave Old Trafford In January Despite Numerous Offers


Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is being tracked by Everton and some Serie A clubs ahead of the next January window but reports claimed that Solskjaer won’t sanction the player’s departure.

The Argentina international has seen game-time too hard to get since the start of Solskjaer’s reign at the helm of affairs, no thanks to injuries and loss of form.

It was said that Everton were closed to completing a last-minute move for his services in the summer but United were smart to block all deals from materializing.

Though the Toffees haven’t given up on their desire to see the Argentine center-back at Goodison Park before the end of the season, United are reportedly reluctant to let go of Rojo.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer wants the player at Old Trafford due to his experience and his versatility.

It should be recalled that Rojo performed brilliantly against Liverpool some weeks ago despite playing as a makeshift fullback in a three-man defensive setup due to the injury picked up by Axel Tuanzebe.

Unfortunately, he has returned back to the substitute bench after the return of Aaron Wan-Bisaka and Axel Tuanzebe from their respective injuries.

It is inevitable to see the player put an end to his five years relationship with the Red Devils in the summer if he fails to get regular game-time under the Norwegian’s tutelage throughout this campaign.
