Man Utd slapped £25million price tag on head of 29-year-old South American defender

Manchester United have reportedly are demanding around £25millionn for Marcos Rojo as the defender continues to be rumoured with an exit from Old Trafford.

The Red Devils forked out £16m when they secured the services of Argentina international defender from Sporting Lisbon back in 2014, with the 29-year-old is going on to playing over 100 games for the Premier League club.

Rojo endured a hugely frustrating season under Ole Gunnar Solkjaer with injuries and a lack of form limiting him to just 211 minutes of first-team football.

While the 29-year-old still has two years left on his current deal, the Red Devils are keen to offload a player who seems to have ended his voyage at Old Trafford.

But the Daily Record say the Red Devils are struggling to attract interest for the 29-year-old defender, with their £25m valuation and his lucrative salary putting teams off.

It is reported that multiple Chinese teams have expressed interest in securing the defender’s services. However, Rojo has no desire to leave Europe and keen on to remain in the English top-tier.

Rojo was one of six defenders to fly in Australia for Manchester United’s pre-season tour, with Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling Victor Lindelof, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones also part of the travelling squad.

The 20-times English champions hope Harry Maguire will join up with the team at some point, with the Reds chiefs are confident to finalise £80m deal for the Leicester City star.
