United are looking to offload Nemanja Matic and Marcos Rojo in January, as per Daily Star.

The Serbian joined the Red Devils following a £40 million deal from Chelsea under the reign of Jose Mourinho. But since then has found himself out of favour under the new regime.

Rojo on the other hand failed to find a consistent rhythm since signing for United due to being constantly succumbing to injuries. This season, the Argentine has made only 9 appearances as Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams have been preferred at left-back.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also prefers Scott McTominay, Fred, Andreas Pereira or Paul Pogba over Matic, who has made just 7 appearances this season.

Consequently, United no longer see the duo as an important asset and will look to a cash in on them for the highest bidder. It was reported that vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Solskjaer have both informed the players they are no longer in their long-term plans.

It is believed that the Serbian international has at least 2 admirers among Premier League clubs whilst the defender has interest from abroad. So there is no shortage of interest.

However, there may be concerns over what price they can fetch, considering their ages. Since both of the United stars will have crossed the 30-year mark by March, it’ll be difficult to fetch a good sum on them.

Nevertheless, it is highly likely that the highest bid will be allowed to sign the players regardless of what valuation the Red Devils may put up on their pricetags.

On the other hand, the former Sporting CP desperately needs game-time in order to be considered for a spot in the Argentina squad. The fullback almost managed a move to Everton, but that never failed to materialise.

The ex-Chelsea man could easily still make it to his international squad as he has always been a regular.
