Opinion: International defender’s Manchester United career is over

Jonathan Barnett, agent of Marcos Rojo, has claimed that the 30-year-old is likely to leave Manchester United this summer, according to Stretty News.

“I couldn’t comment on what Solskjaer thinks but I think it’s obvious, I think with Rojo, probably [a move] is more than likely somewhere else.”

Following United’s 5-2 win against Bournemouth recently, Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be seen speaking to Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.

The Netherlands international is strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford. He could be available for a bargain fee this summer, with the Cherries increasingly looking like likely relegation candidates.

Rojo has been on the books of United since 2014. He was brought to the club under Louis Van Gaal after helping the Argentina team reach the final of the World Cup that year, which they lost against Germany.

He got regular playing time during his first three seasons with the club but dropped down the pecking order during the 2017/18 season under Jose Mourinho.

After being deemed surplus to requirements at United, Rojo joined boyhood club Estudiantes in January in a bid to revive his career.

It has not gone according to plan so far as he has made just one appearance since his return to the Argentine club.

A transfer would suit both parties. Rojo does not really suit the style of play which United are currently utilising under Solskjaer.

A transfer to a club which can give him regular playing time will increase his chances becoming a first-team regular in the Argentina team- with a view to the 2022 World Cup.

In addition to United and Estudiantes, Rojo has also donned the jersey of Spartak Moscow and Sporting Lisbon.
