Multiple reports from various new outlets claim that Manchester United are looking to cash in on Marcos Rojo, as they continue to rebuild their defence. Recently emerged reports also state that Marcos Rojo rejected a move to the Chinese Super League.
Rojo began his career at local club Estudianted de La Plata, where he won the Copa Libertadores in 2009, and played in the Club World Cup Final later that year.
After a short spell with Russian club Spartak Moscow, he joined the Portuguese club Sporting CP in 2012, and transferred to Manchester United for £16 in the 2014-2015 season under the then newly appointed Louis van Gaal.
Marcos made his first appearance for his national team Argentina at senior level in 2011, and has since earned over 35 caps. He started in the 2014 World Cup final for Argentina against the Germans.
He has made 51 appearances for Manchester United since signing for them in the summer of 2014. Rojo played only 16 games for Manchester United in the league last season, owing mostly to constant injuries.
Marcos faces immense competition in the United defence this season. The Red Devils have their new signing Eric Bailly, who was signed from Spanish club Villarreal, and the Englishman Luke Shaw, who has recovered from the horrible injury he suffered against PSV Eindhoven match in the group stages of the Champions League.Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and even Daley Blind can play in the heart of defence.
Rojo mostly played the left back role due to the absence of Luke Shaw last season, but with his return, and potential fresh signings in defence, Rojo has his work cut out.
However, according to the reliable Sky Sports, Rojo wants to remain at Manchester United and prove his worth to manager José Mourinho.
Is Rojo taking the right decision to stay? And would he be able to secure a starting berth for himself under Mourinho this season?
