La Liga giants bid to sign Man Utd star cheap as Red Devils close in on replacement for £24m extra

It could be all change at centre-back for Manchester United this winter if La Liga giants Valencia get their Christmas wish.

According to The Mirror, Valencia have launched an attempt to sign 26-year-old Red Devils defender Marcos Rojo and they are willing to spend £14m.

Considering Rojo cost United £16m (per BBC Sport) when he arrived from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, Valencia’s valuation seems pretty cheap.

However, the Spanish side are hopeful as United are closing in on a £38m deal to sign Swedish stopper Victor Lindelof from Benfica, claim The Mirror.

Rojo has been in fine form in recent weeks, but discipline appears to be a problem for the Argentine, whose tackles have been heavily scrutinised by fans and pundits alike.

Despite Rojo’s impressive displays, Lindelof’s arrival would presumably reduce his importance to manager Jose Mourinho. Lindelof could replace Rojo directly in the starting XI.

However, The Mirror suggest that United are unlikely to sell Rojo, which is no surprise considering Valencia’s low valuation in today’s inflated market.
