Manchester United Defender Nears Valencia Switch

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is reportedly on his way to Valencia for a £10.2 million transfer fee

The Argentina International has been left out of both of the Red Devils’ Premier League games so far this season with Luke Shaw being preferred to start with Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly and Daley Blind at the Back for United.

Valencia are reportedly looking at Rojo as a replacement for German defender, Shkodran Mustafi who is set to join Arsenal for £35 million.

Marcos Rojo joined Manchester United two years ago but has seen his playing time at the Old Trafford limited due to constant injuries and poor performances; he made 53 appearances in all competitions under former United manager, Loius Van Gaal.

Jose Mourinho is said to keen on getting naturally disposed defenders as he tried to convince Southampton defender, Jose Fonte to the Old Trafford, although the 32-year old rejected the Portuguese latest attempt to lure him to the club with a bumper wage bill with reports of him renewing his contract at the Saint Mary. Another stumbling block appears to be United Vice-chairman, Ed Woodward’s unwillingness to sign another player without clearing deadwood off the payroll.
