Everton on alert as former summer target could leave PL giants in January

Manchester United centre-back Marcos Rojo has admitted he will seek a transfer away from the club in January if his first-team chances do not come under head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Argentine star wants to represent his country but knows he won’t be able to force his way back into the national team if he isn’t playing for his club.

The 29-year-old star has only made 63 Premier League starts for the Red Devils since he joined in a £16 million deal from Sporting CP in 2014.

The centre-half was reportedly ‘angry’ that a move to the Toffees could not be finalised before the end of the summer transfer market.

He was left out of his country’s 2019 Copa America roster – who reached the semi-finals – due to a lack of playing time.

After a decent the pre-season campaign at Old Trafford, Rojo has been told by Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni that he could be part of his future plans – if he plays.

Rojo has not featured for Manchester United so far this season and he’ll be looking for a move away in the winter if more minutes don’t materialise.

Marcos told The Sun: “I had the possibility of Everton, but by decisions of the club or the technician could not be done.”

“Now I have to fight it until December and if it does not touch me, I will try to leave. The World Cup qualifiers and the Copa America are coming I want to be part of that.”

“I do not want to be out again, I want to exhaust all the possibilities and compete for to be here. I feel very well physically. The most important thing for me is that it is the coach’s decision to play or not.”
