Wolves interested in signing Marcos Rojo

According to The Independent, Wolves are looking into possibly signing Manchester United and Argentina centre-back, Marcos Rojo.

United are in the market for a new centre-back this summer with Leicester’s Harry Maguire their top target, as a result, Wolves believe that Rojo will be available this summer once United secure the signing of a new defender.

Injury prone defender

Rojo began his career in Argentina with Club Estudiantes de La Plata for whom he played a total of 53 games, in which he scored four and assisted one.

Spartak Moscow then signed Rojo in January of 2011 for a fee in the region of £1.8 million.

Rojo played just 17 games for the Russian side, scoring one and assisting one in that time. He would then be sold to Sporting Lisbon in July of 2012 for a fee of around £3.6 million.

The 28-year-old played 61 games for Sporting, in which he scored seven and assisted one before eventually signed for United in 2014 for a fee of £18 million.

Rojo has played 107 games since moving to United but he has had his fair share of injury troubles.

For example, he managed just nine Premier League appearances last season, largely due to injury.

So, if Wolves do sign him, they may be taking a bit of a gamble.

Promotion

After making top signings such as Ruben Neves and Diego Jota, Wolves were able to dominate the Championship throughout the 2017/18 season.

Wolves were top of the table for the majority of the season and they would eventually finish the season in 1st place with an astonishing 99 points.

But now Wolves have finally won promotion to the Premier League after being absent from the top flight of English football since 2012, they need to make sure their squad is of Premier League quality.

One way they would certainly be able to do that is by signing someone like Rojo.
