To say their time in recent years at Manchester United has been a little bit of a nightmare in regards to playing football might be considered a bit of an understatement.
In truth, Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero are names in which Manchester United fans would be forgiven if they forgot they were players of the club as they have played so little for the club, if at all for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Whilst being surplus to requirements under the Norwegian at Old Trafford is obvious, it appears the manager has finally revealed that each of them will be having their time at the club end in the near future.
The Argentine’s have not even been included in the squad lists for any of the tournaments that the Red Devils find themselves in, which has meant they have not been able to enjoy any football. They might as well have stayed at home and looked for free football tips to try and make use of the time they have on their hands on a daily basis after training.
It is understood that the club would like to offload the pair as soon as possible, with January being the last opportunity in which they would be able to command a transfer fee, however with their contracts up in the summer, whether a football club looks to make an offer or just wait remains to be seen.
There has been alleged interest in Rojo from his homeland with Boca Juniors rumoured to be interested, but they might be keen to wait and sign him on a pre-contract instead; something they can look to arrange now if they wished.
Having signed for £16 million in 2014 from Sporting Lisbon, Rojo last played for Manchester United in a competitive Premier League match back in 2019 and has not been seen since. Romero, on the other hand, has played games more recently, but his snub in the UEFA Europa League appeared to be the last straw.
It is a shame for the Argentina international goalkeeper, who was once deemed the best second choice ‘keeper in Europe as his six years at Old Trafford had been rather solid considering he has had very little to do since arriving from Sampdoria in 2015 on a free transfer.
However, with Dean Henderson having made a name for himself during his loan at Sheffield United, it is clear that Romero will have even less to do during his remaining time at Old Trafford and despite having pushed for an exit earlier in the summer, it looks as though he will finally get one in the near future – something he and his wife will certainly be happy about.
