Marcos Rojo all set to join Manchester United

Share

With less two weeks to go before the transfer window shuts, pressure is mounting on Ed Woodward to make few signings.

Surgery is required and that too urgent. The question is whether the club is ready to shell out ridiculous money to get their preferred targets.

Yesterday reports emerged that Manchester United have made a break through yesterday over a £17.5 million deal for Sporting defender Marcos Rojo, where Nani could rejoin his former club on loan.

Talks between the two clubs were kept on hold, following a legal dispute between Sporting and Doyen Group, who owns 75% of his economic rights.

However, the stance was softened after Rojo issued a public apology for agitating for a transfer. According to The Times, United have agreed to finance the season-long loan of Nani as part of the deal. 

Portugal newspaper A Bola have covered the story in details today. They claim that negotiations for Rojo are at an advanced and the player might travel to England at any moment, with fee agreed to be around 20m. On the other hand, Nani will return to Sporting (as part of the deal) on loan with United continuing to pay his wages. They stressed on the fact that the negotiations are on an advanced stage at the deal could be sorted at any moment. 

The Argentine defender is primarily a left-back but can play in the central defence as well. United were left frustrated in their attempts to land Mats Hummels and Thomas Vermaelen, the later joined Barcelona.

Rojo is seen as a perfect candidate to fit into Louis van Gaal’s 3-4-1-2 formation. United may require one more central defender before the window shuts.

  5. Ed woodward should resign or he should be sacked he is man utd problem. Why is he trying to save man utd money is the money his family own. ed woodward go to hell

  6. Someone is here talking abt Fletcher, Carrick and Young at old Trafford… I guess we still have the likes of Cleverly and Jones who are all disastrous to the team. No doubt this lads are good players but not for United. My club is bigger than them. Fellaini should be sold not loan he is an under player for united. Di Maria is needed too…let me ask ” why is it that United would not consider bringing in Alex Song ” to solve our defensive midfield problem. We are not ready for the season’s campaign. Sunderland is going to prove us otherwise if LVG thinks he’s ready for the battle. Watch out for other big teams in EPL without United inclusive. I have lost my fear factor pls give it back to me Ed Woodward n LVG
