Everton ‘interested’ in Man United’s Marcos Rojo
On Wednesday, Everton had a loan offer for Chris Smalling rejected by Man United.
Could Everton now sign Marcos Rojo instead?
Rojo, an Argentinian international, is under contract at Old Trafford until 2021.
However, the South American defender appears a long way off from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s XI.
According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, “Everton one of a few clubs interested in signing Marcos Rojo today”.
It’s unclear whether Everton’s interest would be for a loan deal, or a permanent transfer.
Everton one of a few clubs interested in signing Marcos Rojo today. United also open to offers for Matteo Darmian but can sell to a foreign club until Sep. 2.
