Manchester United are asking a low fee for Rojo.

South Americans have rarely thrived at Old Trafford. Manchester United have a history of signing stars from the continent who would ultimately become shadows of their true selves. From Angel Di Maria to Alexis Sanchez, the list is endless.

There have been only a few South Americans who have endeared themselves to the Old Trafford faithful such as Carlos Tevez and Antonio Valencia.

When Marcos Rojo arrived at Old Trafford in 2014, he would have been hoping to make a similar impact as the latter two aforementioned players.

Still relatively young at the time, Marcos Rojo was regarded as a bright prospect and someone who would be able to provide the Red Devils with the steel they required as well as the composure to play possession based football.

Unfortunately, Marcos Rojo has failed to live up to the hype in Red Devils colours. The Argentine has had some memorable moments, but often his career has been tainted by his inability to settle into the physically demanding Premier League as well as some unfortunate injuries which derailed his progress.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it is clear Marcos Rojo is no longer wanted at Old Trafford. Even though he was fit for the first half of the season, the Argentine was rarely selected in match-day squads.

Currently on loan back in his homeland, it seems unlikely that the 30 year old will return to Manchester.

And according to El Dia via Sports Witness, Man United are demanding a surprisingly low fee for Marcos Rojo. The paper claims that the Red Devils are only asking for £9.5 million which is only about half of what the Red Devils paid to recruit him from Sporting Libson in 2014.

It will be another one to add to the list of bad business conducted by Man United under the leadership of Ed Woodward.

Though of course the current situation isn’t exactly ideal with football clubs around the world already incurring mass financial difficulties. This deal might not be entirely Ed Woodward’s fault.

Marcos Rojo will leave the Red Devils enshrouded by the myth of what could have been. The Argentine showed great potential but could never properly settle at Old Trafford.
