While Manchester United’s roster is boasting the look of a squad that is back to winning ways, there are still a few supporters who remain critical of the club’s transfer activities.
The big outcry after deadline day was that the drastic overhaul didn’t occur. Only three signings were made and certain positions were still left to the questionable taint of mediocrity.
After their 4-0 victory over Chelsea, the sheer brilliance of the newcomers is certainly not to be doubted anymore.
However, the deadwood at the club is still a problem that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and company must address.
In particular, the squad must come to terms with dealing with surplus talent. One such name is not happy about how the transfer dealings proceeded.
According to the Times, Marcos Rojo is angry that his proposed deadline day move to Everton fell through.
The Argentine defender has been surplus to requirements at Old Trafford for quite a while now and it seems that Solskjaer made it all but certain that there was no room for him on the roster.
As of such, a move to a side like Everton would have been the ideal bet and despite heavy speculation on deadline day, a transfer didn’t materialize.
Over the past few days, there have been murmurs from Turkey suggesting that Rojo could be loaned out to Fenerbahce as the side is looking for a player of his versatility and skill-set.
Most supporters will agree that Rojo is better off on a loan rather than being wasted on the side’s bench.
A similar negative outlook exists on Alexis Sanchez who has also been speculated towards an exit before the European transfer window closes in early September.
The Chilean’s high wages may be a problem in that regard, which ironic since his age package has also proved to be a thorn for United over the past few months.
