‘What madness is this’, ‘Surely not’ – Fans of EFL club react as Manchester United man emerges as January target

Published

Reading have made an offer to sign Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo as they look to improve their defence in the January window.

The Royals have enjoyed a brilliant season so far under new boss Veljko Paunović, with the Serbian guiding the team to fifth position, just four points from leaders Norwich, after 17 games.

Despite that, he will be eager to strengthen in the New Year, and reporter Duncan Castles has revealed that the Berkshire outfit are keen on Rojo.

The 30-year-old, who has won 61 caps for Argentina, is way down the pecking order at Old Trafford, and United would love to shift him in January if possible.

Obviously, there are many obstacles to overcome for Reading to do this deal, not least financially, but it’s fair to say it’s a potential transfer that got the fans talking.
