The fact that the English transfer window has ended for purchases seems to have put quite a few supporters in the wrong frame of mind. While the Premier League clubs certainly can’t add to their rosters through transfers anymore, they still stand to lose.
Since most European leagues don’t put a stop on their transfer seasons until early September, these other clubs have the luxury to try and poach players from England.
While blockbuster transfers may not occur in this period given that the English sides can no longer sign apt replacements, it is certainly a great chance to get rid of deadwood and surplus talents.
In fact, something of the sort may be afoot at Old Trafford.
According to reports in Turkey through outlet Posta (via Sports Witness), Marcos Rojo is still in the midst of negotiating an exit from Manchester United.
The Argentine striker, who is evidently surplus to requirements at Old Trafford presently, was unable to secure a move to Everton on deadline day.
Now, this report holds that Turkish outfit Fenerbahce are looking to acquire him on a loan deal.
It appears that the side failed in their pursuit of Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov, who was instead lapped up by Roma and as of such they have begun looking at alternative options.
Rojo is considered to top that list and talks are allegedly already underway between the two outfits. Fenerbahce manager Ersun Yanal apparently considers the 29-year-old to be a versatile option along the backline and is hence eager on his signature.
Ole Gunnar Soklsjaer, meanwhile, is eager on offloading Rojo as he is quite surplus to requirements in the present lineup.
This would explain why United may not be looking for a complete transfer but are instead considering a loan deal which would both clear their wage bill by a bit as well as ensure that the defender isn’t left wasted on the sidelines.
