Sheffield United are considering making a move for Marcos Rojo in January.
The Argentine returned to Old Trafford in the summer after a disappointing loan spell with his former club Estudiantes, with injuries and then the global pandemic severely limiting his playing time.
Now 30, he is out of contract with Manchester United next summer, and is highly unlikely to be offered an extension, given that he is way down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Sheffield United, having performed so well in their first season back in the Premier League, have endured a torrid campaign so far this time round and are rock bottom of the tale, having won only once so far in the Premier League.
They have made signing a new centre-half a priority when the transfer window opens, and, although they are looking at a number of options, Rojo has his supporters amongst the club’s Board.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
