As Marcos Rojo seems to be close to quitting Manchester United this month, here’s one more club who are allegedly working to sign the Argentina international from the Red Devils.
According to Mexican journalist Beto on social media, Twitter, it’s now Cruz Azul who entered the race for the 30-year-old. It’s stated the Mexican club ‘opened talks’ for the star’s arrival.
No further details explaining if the transfer negotiations are with the 20-times English champions or directly with the player’s entourage.
This is the second side from the South American who seems to be in discussions for Marcos Rojo since the interest from Miguel Angel Russo’s Boca Juniors has been reported in his homeland for a while now.
The Argentine media has been pointing out that Xeneizes don’t want to spend money on paying a sum to Manchester United, as they expect Marcos to rescind his current deal and move as a free agent.
So in case of Cruz Azul’s wish to negotiate with the Red Devils, perhaps they would find some priority to secure the services of the player.
In other news, RB Leipzig have given up hope of retaining the services of Dayot Upamecano beyond the summer but aren’t planning on losing him before then, claims The Guardian.
United are among a number of top clubs chasing the star’s signature, with competition from the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Liverpool.
Upamecano’s exit clause comes into effect at the end of the current term, at which point he is likely to be the subject of proposals.
But Leipzig are confident of warding off interest until then so the centre-half can help with the push for honours in the coming months.
