Everton could land former target Rojo on a free transfer this summer

Everton have been credited with an interest in Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo and he could be available on a free transfer this summer.

Manchester United could be willing to let outcast defender Marcos Rojo leave Old Trafford on a free transfer this summer, according to the Daily Star.

They report that United are so keen to get Rojo off the wage bill – Spotrac claim he earns £80,000 per week at Old Trafford – that they will let him leave for nothing when the transfer window opens.

That’s a far cry from the £18m Metro reported United wanted for his services during Jose Mourinho’s tenure, back in November.

Marco Silva has tried his best to overhaul Everton’s backline with the arrivals of Yerry Mina and Kurt Zouma, but the former has had his injury problems while the latter will return to Chelsea at the end of the season.

With Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines nearing the end of their careers, bringing in a player who can play at both centre-half and left-back could be handy for Silva.

And if they can get him on a free rather than for the £18m quoted just months ago, Everton may feel they’ve got a bargain – so long as they can get Rojo fit and back to the form that made him a World Cup finalist in 2014.
