Marcos Rojo Set To Leave Man Utd After Being Frozen Out

Marcos Rojo is set for a move away from Manchester United in the summer, according to reports.

The defender, who joined the club in 2014, has started just one match for the Reds in the Premier League this season.

According to The Telegraph, Rojo is likely to leave after failing to cement his spot in the first-team.

He has made just three appearances this season and has not featured since the 2-1 defeat to Valencia in December.

Rojo reportedly rakes in £80,000-per-week at Old Trafford and United could be keen to free up space on their wage bill.

The 28-year-old was sent home from the club’s winter training camp in Dubai this month due to ongoing injury issues.

After he joined the club from Sporting CP, Rojo made 22 league matches during his debut season.

But he has failed to replicate his sublime spell of form and has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford after a string of injuries.

Rojo has fallen behind Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones  in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s pecking order.

The 59-cap Argentina international attracted interest from Everton and Wolves last summer.

United could offload Rojo to make room for the arrival of Napoli sensation Kalidou Koulibaly. 

It is reported that the Senegal international is unsettled in Italy after being the subject of racist chants during the Boxing Day defeat to Inter Milan.
