Man Utd in talks to offload outcast to surprise destination

Turkish side Fenerbahce have emerged as a potential destination for Manchester United misfit Marcos Rojo, according to reports.

Rojo has fallen far down the pecking order at Old Trafford, but a potential deadline day move to Everton failed to go through, meaning he will have to look outside of the Premier League if he wants to call time on his United career this summer.

According to Turkish outlet Posta (via Sport Witness), the 29-year-old defender is now a target for Fenerbahce, after they grew frustrated in their efforts to sign a former Manchester City player.

The Istanbul-based side had been interested in Aleksandar Kolarov, but the veteran left-back seems likely to stay at Roma, so Fenerbahce have had to turn elsewhere.

Rojo has been identified as someone who, like Kolarov, can be deployed either as a centre-back or a left-back, and they should have far fewer problems trying to convince United to sell the Argentine.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy to let Rojo leave this summer having splashed out on Harry Maguire, and talks with Fenerbahce are reportedly already underway over a potential loan move.

Rojo would be the second defender to move from an English side to Fenerbahce in recent weeks, after they acquired Mathias Jorgensen from Huddersfield Town last week.
