Manchester United

United eager to offload Rojo

23rd April 2019, 15:30 by Gareth Freeman

Manchester United's Marcos Rojo could be handed a £5million pay-off to smooth a departure away from Old Trafford this summer.

The Argentina international defender was again left out of the Red Devils' squad for Sunday's humiliating 4-0 drubbing by Everton at Goodison Park.

Rojo signed a new new three-year, £120,000-per-week deal to remain at Old Trafford last summer, having run down his contract.

The South American isn't believed to be a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future plans and the Manchester giants are willing to listen to offers in the region of £20m.

Rojo was seen earlier this month laughing during United's 2-1 loss at Wolverhampton Wanderers, which certainly didn't go down well with some of the rank and file.

Paris Saint-Germain have previously shown an interest but United know it will be difficult to move on the 29-year-old - without a substantial severance package being involved.

Rojo is due £11.5m in wages under the terms of his contract and the club is factoring in pay-offs to all the players now deemed surplus to requirements under a squad rebuild.
