United defender Rojo for sale

Argentina international Marcos Rojo has now been put up for sale by Manchester United, with the club setting an asking price representing over a €7 million loss for the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho is busy shaping his United squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford, and after deeming Rojo surplus to requirements, has decided on a valuation that is considerably less to what they previously paid for him.

According to The Daily Record, the Portuguese tactician has told the defender that he is free to find another club and will listen to offers in the region of €12 million.

Former United boss Louis van Gaal shelled out €19 million to bring the World Cup ace to the club in 2014.

Since then, he has featured intermittently as he made 22 Premier League appearances in his first season and then 16 last time around.

United have already opened their cheque book to find a replacement as they signed Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly from Villarreal earlier this summer, for over €35 million.

Mourinho is tasked with leading United above the fifth place finish they achieved last season, and has made cutting adrift deadwood one of his main priorities so far.

Joining Rojo on the transfer list is Adnan Januzaj and Bastian Schweinsteiger, the latter of whom was recently ordered to clear his locker out from the first team dressing room.
