Everton in talks with Manchester United to sign Marcos Rojo

Everton is in talks with Manchester United to sign Marcos Rojo on a permanent deal.

Everton is on the lookout for a center-back after having Kurt Zouma return to Chelsea from a season-long loan and Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka released, as well as seeing United reject their loan bid for Chris Smalling.

The Toffees tried to bring Rojo to Goodison Park last summer, but the deal fell through at the last minute and it’s believed Marco Silva sees the 29-year-old as a potential replacement for Zouma.

The Argentine was at United’s Carrington training ground on Thursday morning along with one of his representatives and held talks with United over his future at the club.

He last played for them in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea in April and featured only six times in total last season.

The world-record signing of Harry Maguire from Leicester further pushed Rojo down the pecking order at Old Trafford after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose Smalling and Victor Lindelof as his first choice center-back pairing when he took over in December.

Rojo has two years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford with the option to extend his deal by a further year.
