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.
That’s a far cry from the £18m Metro reported United wanted for his services during Jose Mourinho’s tenure, back in November.
Everton were linked with a swoop for the defender at that stage, so could they be tempted to go back in for the Argentine now the finances involved in the deal may change?
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.
