Man United in talks with Turkish giants over loan switch for out-of-favour Red Devils star

Posted by

Man United are reportedly in talks with Turkish giants Fenerbahce over a move for Red Devils and Argentina defender Marcus Rojo. 

This is according to the Mirror, who are re-reporting and translating an article from Fanatik, who note that the Turkish Super Lig side are keen on snagging a loan move for the former Sporting Lisbon star.

The report also notes that the Argentine star has fallen sharply down the pecking order at Old Trafford, so it looks like the 28-year-old won’t be commanding a starting place in Jose Mourinho’s side any time soon.

Rojo has seriously struggled to hold down a first team place at United since his arrival back in 2014.

The player was only able to conjure up 12 appearances in all competitions last year, so it seems like Mourinho certainly isn’t fond of playing the Argentine.

Rojo has only played more than 16 Premier League games in a season twice since he joined the club, with his most appearances in a campaign coming in his first year the club, with the star playing in 22 league outings for the Red Devils.

A loan move could be very beneficial for Rojo, as it would allow the player the chance to get more first team minutes under his belt with one of Turkey’s biggest clubs.
