Man Utd ace tipped to leave, talks underway over loan exit

Man Utd defender Marcos Rojo is reportedly being paired with an exit to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce on loan for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old struggled with injuries and competition for places last season, resulting in him making just 12 appearances in all competitions.

In turn, coupled with the fact that he still has a battle on his hands for playing time alongside the likes of Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, an exit appears to be the most sensible outcome for all parties concerned.

According to The Sun, talks have already begun over joining Fenerbahce on loan, although while they suggest he was snubbed by Jose Mourinho against Leicester City, the Portuguese tactician revealed in his press conference last week that he was absent from the squad due to injury.

While Bailly and Lindelof impressed in the heart of the backline as Luke Shaw bagged what turned out to be the winning goal, all three look set to stake a serious claim to be regular fixtures in the side this season.

With that in mind, it’s difficult to see where Rojo fits in, although an argument could be made that given United are looking to compete on multiple fronts this season, perhaps Mourinho could use the additional depth at his disposal in that department.

Nevertheless, based on the report above, it would appear as though Rojo may be heading for the exit door at Old Trafford, four years on after joining the Premier League giants from Sporting.

Should he now exit, albeit on a temporary basis as per the Sun, he’ll have done so having made 107 appearances for Man Utd, and time will tell if he gets a chance to add to that tally in the future.
