Marcos Rojo has been pulling off fine performances off late in the back line for Manchester United, leading to his revival as a player and attracting healthy attention in the footballing world.
According to reports in the Mirror, the defender has emerged as a £14m target for La Liga side Valencia.
Rojo has seemed to establish himself as a regular starter in Manchester United lineup these days, but the inevitable arrival of Victor Lindelof might raise a few questions over the player’s future and plans his manager has in store for him.

Valencia sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch has been meeting with Rojo’s representatives in England in order to convince them of sending the Argentine to the Spanish Club.
With United closing in on Victor by splashing out a huge amount of money, Valencia have made an attempt to take away Marcos Rojo and solidify their team.
However, this is Rojo’s best run for United so far in his short career at the club, and this might make the move a little hard to complete. He has formed a surprisingly solid partnership with Jones in the centre of United’s defence, and that has been one of the major reasons of United’s latest run on impressive form.
Jose Mourinho has been full of praises for Rojo off late, and also recently waved away interest from China to keep his man at Old Trafford.
Rojo joined United in 2014, signing from Sporting Lisbon by then manager Van Gaal, and has since made 76 appearances for the Red Devils.
