Manchester United demanding a combined €30m for Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo
Both Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo are not part of the plans under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heading into the new season. And the club are eager to cash in on the two defenders in the current transfer window. (h/t Daily Record)
Dalot joined Manchester United from FC Porto in the summer of 2018. Injuries haven’t allowed him to progress as planned, while the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka last summer dented his first-team chances in a big way.
Towards the end of the campaign, Solskjaer preferred to use Timothy Fosu-Mensah ahead of the Portuguese, signalling how far down in the pecking order he is currently.
Rojo, on the other hand, has been with Manchester United for six years now, having arrived under the Louis van Gaal regime in 2014. However, the Argentine has never been able to establish himself as a regular at Old Trafford due to injuries.
Over the last two to three years, Rojo’s involvement has decreased to a great extent. This led to him being loaned out to boyhood club Estudiantes for the second half of the 2019/20 campaign.

It has been slow going in the transfer market so far for Manchester United. With just one signing coming in so far, it is time that we ramp up activities.
At the same time, it is also important to cut the deadwood from the squad. So hopefully, we see some action in terms of transfers in the coming weeks.
