Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to strengthen the Manchester United defence as he looks to accumulate funds with the sale of the defender Marcos Rojo.
Manchester United are hoping to chop out Marcos Rojo as they set up a world record offer for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly this January.
The Senegal professional has been the name on United’s list for various months however any desires for marking Koulibaly this month have been dashed by his Italian managers, compelling the club to hold off on their enthusiasm until the finish of the season.
The 27-year-old’s transfer expense is relied upon to overshadow the £75m that Liverpool paid to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in 2018, with different reports recommending that Koulibaly’s turn could break the £100m hindrance.
The Metro claim that one step Manchester United are hoping to take in front of Koulibaly’s entry is to offload their out-of-favor defender, Rojo.
The Argentinian has featured in only three appearances for United this season. Moreover, the player was sent home from the club’s preparation camp in Dubai because of his proceeding injury.
Marcos Rojo gathered interest from Everton and Wolves the previous summer. However, nothing concrete is set up at the present moment that would see the defender free up space on Manchester United’s wage bill this month.
A number of his Rojo’s present injuries might create a complication for United in order to sell him. But the defender is likely to make way in summer when United are expecting to bring in new center backs.
