Manchester United in Marcos Rojo transfer dilemma


Manchester United in Marcos Rojo transfer dilemma

Manchester United have been handed a transfer dilemma in deciding Marcos Rojo's future, with the two parties having different views for the future.


Marcos Rojo's agent has opened up about Rojo's future, claiming that he is 'likely' to leave United at the end of the season according to rumours.


Rojo has made just nine appearances for United in the first half of the season, before being loaned out to Estudiantes in the January transfer window. However, his loan was anti-climactic, as he only made one appearance for the Argentine club, due to injuries and the COVID-19 pandemic halting football.


Estudiantes are keen to extend his stay at the club, wanting to make his deal permanent if a fee can be agreed.


Jonathan Barnett, Rojo's representative, has claimed that he is "more than likely" going to move.


On the other hand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated during the press conference on Wednesday July 8 that United have "seven centre-backs", when addressing a question about a potential move for Bournemouth's Nathan Ake.


Ake was rumoured to be the main contender to replace Rojo at the club, but Solskjaer's statement basically ruled it out completely.


The rumour emerged after Solskjaer was rumoured telling Ake that the club needs a 'left footed centreback" after United's 5-2 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
