Marcos Rojo set for Man Utd stay

Mourinho to keep hold of Rojo

Argentina international Marcus Rojo will remain at Manchester United for the season having impressed under Jose Mourinho in recent games. 

The 26-year-old, who is mainly a left-back by trade, has adapted well alongside Phil Jones at the heart of the defence.

Rojo was no more than a fringe player in the early stages of the campaign before injuries to Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly earned him the right to become a regular in the starting line-up.

According to, Mourinho has decided against offloading Rojo in the winter transfer window due to his impressive showing in the backline this season.

The Argentine was linked with a potential move to Italy earlier last month, but he now sees himself in a position where he could be preferred ahead of Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling in central defence.
