Man Utd outcast set for loan move to Turkey

Marcos Rojo could be set for a move to Turkey after his deadline day transfer to Everton fell through.

The Argentinian made just five appearances in the Premier League last season and has moved further down the pecking order at Old Trafford with the arrival of Harry Maguire.

Fenerbahce are now said to be interested in a loan move for Rojo, reports Turkish newspaper Posta.

The Turkish giants signed Huddersfield Town’s Mathias Zanka last week but are thought to be in the market for another centre back.

Having been re-buffed in their attempts to sign Aleksandar Kolarov from Roma, they have turned their attention to the Man Utd outcast.

Rojo was signed by Louis Van Gaal for £18million in 2014 but has struggled for regular first team football for the last two seasons.

He still has two years remaining on his contract, and United would rather he went out on loan to reduce the wage bill, rather than sitting in the reserves until the January transfer window.

The Turkish transfer window shuts on September 2.
