Interest builds in £20m-rated Man Utd ace as Jose Mourinho looks set to cash in

Man Utd defender Marcos Rojo is reportedly attracting interest from PSG, Marseille, Zenit and Everton as an exit from Old Trafford is seemingly growing increasingly likely.

The 28-year-old joined the Red Devils in 2014, and has gone on to make 107 appearances for the club having established himself as a key figure in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge.

However, injuries and competition for places limited him last season, and it appears as though it could have a negative impact on his future at United with an exit being touted this summer.

According to The Sun, a string of clubs are now interested in signing the Argentine international who is said to be valued at £20m, while it’s added in the report that Mourinho is willing to allow him to leave.

With Sky Sports reporting that Tottenham could consider offers for Toby Alderweireld, with Man Utd specifically mentioned as an interested party, the sale of Rojo could well open up space and funds to pursue the Belgian international.

Nevertheless, Mourinho seems well stocked in that department already given he could still call upon Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof if Rojo was to leave, and so an argument could perhaps be made that he’d be better off focusing on other areas in his squad.

Time will tell if Rojo’s sale sparks that reshuffle though, with Man Utd looking to make the necessary changes to put themselves in a stronger position to contend this coming season.

Mourinho’s men finished 19 points adrift of rivals Man City in the Premier League title race last season, while their defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup final meant that they ended the campaign with no trophies. In turn, they’ll be desperate to bounce back and enjoy a successful year, and changes may be needed to ensure that happens.
