Report: Sheffield United have bid for Manchester United's Marcos Rojo, player apparently keen on deal

Manchester United defender, Marcos Rojo, is apparently open to a move to Sheffield United in the January window.

Rumours have started to pick up once again with regards to Rojo and the Blades after reports in October claimed United failed with a late loan bid for the Argentinian.

The Daily Mail claimed this week that the Blades were looking at a way of ‘structuring a package’ to afford Rojo’s £80k-a-week wages. However, given his injuries and those wages, a move had been deemed unlikely by local journalists and media.

However, speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, respected journalist Duncan Castles claims a move might be closer than we think.

Castles claims the Blades have a bid in for Rojo and, while it has been rejected as things stand, he believes United and Rojo are pushing for officials at Old Trafford to green light the deal.

Chris Wilder is desperate for a new left centre-back this January and has apparently made his targets known to the board already.

We couldn’t, could we?

Signing someone of Rojo’s calibre would be quite a statement signing in all honesty. He’s got experience at the very highest level and in terms of quality, we won’t find many better.

However, there still has to be question marks here. The money is massive, Rojo has been injured a lot, and Man United are under no pressure to allow him to move.

But this is a rumour that’s gathering pace and, if anything, it’s exciting to see us being linked with a player who has over 60 caps for one of the best footballing nations in the world.
