Man Utd outcast ‘in talks over Turkey move’ after Premier League switch fails

Posted on


Man Utd outcast Marcos Rojo could be set for a move to Turkey after his Everton transfer fell through.

The Argentine defender is not part of the first team plans at Old Trafford, and was close to a switch to the Toffees on deadline day.

United are still keen to offload the 29-year-old, despite the breakdown of the move, and Fenerbahce are now said to be interested.

Sport Witness cite reports in Turkey that suggest Fenerbahce are targeting Rojo in a potential loan move.

The Turkish giants have turned their attentions to the Red Devils defender after they failed in their approach for former Man City star Aleksandar Kolarov – now of Roma.

Rojo could be leaving Old Trafford after all this summer

 

Rojo still has two years remaining on his contract, and United would rather him go out on loan to get him off the wage bill, than sit in the reserves until the next transfer window.

Negotiations are already said to have begun between the two clubs, with the Turkish deadline not until September 2.

Rojo was signed by former United boss Louis van Gaal, and made just six appearances last season.

He has fallen even further down the pecking order this season following the arrival of Harry Maguire.

The England international became the world’s most-expensive defender when he completed his £80 million switch from Leicester a fortnight ago.

And he has been tipped to be a huge success at Old Trafford by his former teammate and ex-United centre-back Jonny Evans.

Drawing similarities with Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, Evans told Sky Sports : “You can see comparisons in their games.

The arrival of Maguire has further limited Rojo’s chances

 

“Both are great on the ball, and Harry has got explosive pace people don’t see. He is powerful and good in the air.

“Everyone will compare the transfer fees but it’s so difficult to judge transfer fees nowadays. We are all human and it is weird we get traded for money.

“In the transfer market it’s all supply and demand and things can go up and down at any moment. The most important thing is for him to be judged on how he plays.”
