29-year-old Argentina defender was on verge of joining Everton

Marcos Rojo is believed to be fuming after his deadline day move to Everton collapsed.

The Manchester United misfit was braced to make a loan move to Premier League rivals after being told he was free to leave.

Toffees head coach Marco Silva was keen to land a centre-back to solve their problem at the back.

But the Mail writes that Manchester United changed the parameters before the deal could be completed and Goodison Park side walked away from the transfer.

Marcos Rojo was itching to leave the Theatre of Dreams having started just two league games last season.

The South American has failed to win over manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in pre-season, and the arrival of Harry Maguire pushed him further down the pecking order.

But Marcos Rojo could still seal a loan move as there are extended deadlines in Italy, France and Spain while some clubs from Turkey are also interested in his services.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to deploy Victor Lindelof alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of his defence this term with Chris Smalling as the first reserve.

With seven central defenders at the club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer nevertheless declined the chance to loan Chris Smalling to the Toffees on Wednesday as the Norwegian wanted the experienced defender to be by his side.

Everton did, however, complete a £40million late swoop for Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi and it is believed that the Gunners winger represents an alternative to Wilfried Zaha, who the Merseyside club were desperate to sign.
