Marcos Rojo agent set for showdown talks with Ed Woodward

According to El Eco (h/t Express), the agent of Manchester United star Marcos Rojo is set to have showdown talks with Ed Woodward.

The Argentine has fallen down the pecking order at the club. United are open to selling him and expect to recoup at least £9.5million in the upcoming window.

Rojo played just 120 minutes this season before being loaned out to boyhood club Estudiantes. However, a knee injury and the coronavirus pandemic have limited him to one solitary appearance.

His loan agreement is set to expire in a few weeks and Estudiantes expect the player will likely return to Manchester when it does.

In spite of Rojo’s preference to stay on in Argentina, United’s asking price is set to be a major obstacle. According to the report, he has asked his agent to help broker an agreement that will extend his stay.

His preference is also motivated by personal reasons as he and his partner are expecting their third child.

The defender has been at United for five-and-a-half years. He was signed from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2014 for £16million. Capable of playing in central defence and at left-back, Rojo has made 122 appearances for the Red Devils.

With the club’s finances affected by the coronavirus crisis, selling Rojo will help supplement the funds available for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to spend in the summer.

It will be in everyone’s best interests for the Argentine to move on. Neither does he have a future at the club nor is he keen to remain at Old Trafford.

Also given his personal reason, let’s hope an agreement can be reached that can suit everyone involved.
